A tavern keeper in 1830s Louisville, Kentucky, Augustus Bulleit was dedicated to a single goal: the creation of a bourbon unique in flavour. One fateful day, while transporting his barrels of bourbon from Kentucky to New Orleans, Augustus Bulleit vanished. What happened is still unknown, and his creation nearly disappeared into history along with him.
In 1987 Augustus' great-great grandson Thomas E. Bulleit, Jr., left his successful law practice to revive his ancestor's legacy and the Bulleit Distilling Company was born. The result is a superior style of bourbon with a high rye content, lending the liquid a bold, spicy character and smooth, clean finish.
The FoBo Jug Band will be bringing us the sounds of the Delta on guitar, piano, harmonica and washboard to complement the reduced price Bulleit Bourbon cocktails being served this evening.
