Bulleit Bourbon maker Diageo calls accusations of homophobia “unfair”

It is unfortunate that we were not able to come to terms on the multi-year contract that we recently offered to Hollis. However, to insinuate that the failure to do so was due to bias of any kind is simply unfair and inaccurate. We are very proud of our long track record of work, through many of our brands, to support the LGBT community. We are appreciative of Hollis’s past efforts on behalf of the brand and the industry.”— A statement from Diageo, the corporation that owns the Bulleit Bourbon brand, in response to Bulleit founder’s daughter Hollis’ strong accusations of homophobia.
