The Four Roses Bourbon was created by Paul Jones Jr., fell in love with a Southern belle’s beauty at the beginning of it all. According to folklore, Paul asked her to marry him, and she promised to wear a bouquet of flowers on her gown at the next ball, if her response would be ‘Yes’ . On the eve of the momentous event, Paul Jones was full of anticipation. She arrived in a gorgeous gown and carried a corsage of four red roses. As a tribute to his deep love for the goergeous woman, he gave his whiskey the name “Four Roses” and used it to make his treasured Four Roses Bourbon.
The barrels are hand-selected, ten unique bourbon formulas are developed over time, and time and effort are invested into making each bottle at Four Roses. Distillers are committed, seasoned experts in their field who proudly claim that “we were there before the moon landing and prohibition.”
You’ll want to indulge in this exceptional single barrel’s flavour over and over again. With a delicate, lengthy finish that is unexpectedly mellow, it is complex, full-bodied, and remarkably smooth. It has amazing aromas of dried spice, pear, cocoa, vanilla and maple syrup, with hints of ripe plum and cherries.
Drink on the rocks or straight up.
