Rhapsodic and sophisticated Bourbon.
 
The origin of the name “Four Roses” is a bit muddy – the most popular story says the distillery was founded by a druggist Rufus M. Rose, and that the four roses are his immediate family. What we do know for sure is that the company was established in 1888, that they produce incredibly good Bourbon, and their Master Distiller is Brent Elliott. They're also known for using a library of two mash bills and five different yeast strains to create wildly different expressions.
 
For their 130th anniversary, they used their standard Small Batch formula of blending older Bourbons released at cask strength. They used the 10-year-old OBSV, the 13-year-old OBSF, the 14-year-old OESV, and OESK that's 16 years old. Mr. Elliot said he focused on building around the fruitiness of the selected strains, creating a balanced and complex Bourbon. Four Roses Limited Edition Small Batch is famous for its sophisticated profile, and the jubilee version proves once again Four Roses have the blending game figured out to the t.

"Remember that iconic poster from World War II showing Rosie the Riveter as a patriotic American woman doing her part for the war effort? Well, hundreds of businesses did their part too, and the Bourbon distillers stepped right up with ‘em.

Distilleries all over Kentucky and Tennessee were re-tooled to distill fuel alcohol and ferment penicillin cultures to treat wounded soldiers."
Four Roses is the only distillery we are aware of that uses single level storage rick-houses to age their core Whiskey. They do this because they believe that variations in temperature, pressure, and humidity within multi-story warehouses makes for inconsistent Bourbon.
Whisky or Whiskey? The spelling differs geographically. In Scotland, Japan, and some other parts of the world, distilleries usually spell it Whisky; in Ireland and the USA, they spell it Whiskey.
Bourbon Is a ''new barrel Spirit'': One of the legal requirements for Bourbon is that it only be aged in brand new oak charred barrels.
Sure, Kentucky gets all the press when it comes to Bourbon. And with good reason—nearly 95% of it is produced there. But Bourbon can be made anywhere as long as it's within the United States. Just ask states with budding distilleries like Illinois and New York.
Bourbon rules refer to manufacturing methods rather than location. Bourbon must be matured in new and charred American white oak casks for at least 2 years. If the bottle has no age statement, the Bourbon is at least 4 years old. No coloring or flavoring of any type is allowed, and the mash bill must contain at least 51% corn.
