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.

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 Is a ''new barrel Spirit'': One of the legal requirements for Bourbon is that it only be aged in brand new oak charred barrels.
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.
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.
Bourbon was declared "The Official Spirit of America" by an Act of Congress signed by President Lyndon Johnson in 1964.
Bourbon matures quicker than Scotch due to higher temperatures in American warehouses.
