Original and Splendid Straight Bourbon Blend.

Four Roses Distillery is a special place with a special page in history. One of only six distilleries that were permitted to operate during Prohibition to produce medicinal Bourbon, it has an intriguing history. Sitting on the banks of the Salt River in the serene rural part of Kentucky, it saw ups and downs, until it was resurrected in 2002. Today, the Lawrenceburg distillery creates top-notch Bourbons, each with its special twist.

One of the Four Roses' blockbusters is the Original Bourbon, formerly known as the Yellow Label, a fantastic NAS straight Bourbon. It's aged for around five years in oak barrels and supervised by Master Distiller Brent Elliott. The light amber Spirit is extraordinarily smooth and perfect for classic Bourbon cocktails (you can't go wrong with Vanilla Old-Fashioned or Bufala Negra). Like all Four Roses blends, it comes from the pool of 10 unique recipes. This bottle brings lavish aromas and flavors with a long and soft finish. Twelve awards cannot be mistaken.

Bourbon must be made from a grain mixture that is at least 51% corn.
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.
At any given time, there are more barrels of Bourbon in Kentucky than there are people. The population of the Bluegrass State is about 4.4 million. Today there are more than 5 million barrels of Bourbon sitting in the rick-houses of that Old Kentucky Home. That’s nearly 300 bottles of Bourbon per person, or about 60 gallons each.
Bourbons have very prominent notes of vanilla, as American White Oak is naturally high in vanillins.
Bourbon only needs to be placed in a new oak container for a few seconds to be called Bourbon. Fresh from the still and unaged Bourbon is called a White Dog. Recently, many of the larger distillers have started packaging this harsh, clear grain spirit for sale.
"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."
