In 1884, Paul Jones Jr, moved his thriving business to Louisville, Kentucky, where he opened an office in a section of historic Main Street called, Whiskey Row. Four years later, he trademarked the name Four Roses. All but six of 183 Bourbon distilleries were closed during Prohibition. Four Roses was however one of the six distilleries legally licensed to distill Bourbon for “Medicinal Purposes Only.” The staff at Four Roses have a passion for quality and their pride in handcrafting an award winning Bourbon is evident in the smooth, mellow taste that has become the signature of the Four Roses Brand. The current Master Distiller Brent Elliott says it is hard to call what he does a job because, to him, “it’s a privilege and a passion to be a part of Four Roses”.
If you’ve ever wanted proof that mingling Bourbons is an art unto itself, you’ll find it in Four Roses perfectly balanced, Small Batch Bourbon. Four original and limited Bourbon recipes have been expertly selected by their Master Distiller at the peak of maturation to create this very mellow and perfectly balanced Bourbon. You can enjoy it best straight up, on the rocks or simply with a splash.
The aromas are of mellow spice, rich fruit, hints of sweet oak & caramel. The flavours are mellow, with ripened red berries and dried spice, which are well-balanced as well as rich. Four Roses Small Batch has a soft character with a smooth and pleasantly long finish.
