Four Roses Bourbon

Our Bourbon

Made with the same passion

since 1888.

Only Four Roses handcrafts 10 distinct and extraordinary Bourbon recipes, then mingles them by hand to create our family of award-winning brands. Artistry such as this is how we survived Prohibition, The Great Depression, Two World Wars, and 40 years of exile from the US, only to be named American Whisky Distiller of the Year for 2011, 2012, 2013, and 2015 – four times in the last five years - by Whisky Magazine. Handcrafting this way may be a bit more time consuming, but one sip, and you’ll no doubt agree, it’s worth the extra effort.


A premium Single Barrel Bourbon with a taste you’ll want to savor again and again.
