Unique blend of four excellent Bourbons.

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.

Small Batch Kentucky Bourbon Whiskey is one of the special ones. Four Roses has two different mash bills and five different yeast strains, which creates ten unique recipes. Four of those recipes are blended to make Small Batch, a unique and perfectly balanced Bourbon. Each Bourbon is aged for at least four years, hand-selected and blended. The rich spicy flavors come from high rye content of two of the Bourbons, while the other two bring lighter fruity flavors. Four Roses Small Batch won 21 awards, including two gold medals at San Francisco World Spirits Competition. The best way to enjoy this amber beauty is neat or on the rocks.

Bourbon was declared "The Official Spirit of America" by an Act of Congress signed by President Lyndon Johnson in 1964.
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 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.
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.
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.
