Handcrafting our Bourbon requires attention to detail from start to mellow finish. Grain Lab Technician, Brian Calvert, will agree that it’s worth the extra effort. Unloading, testing and grading the whole grain that comes in each day are just a few ways that Brian has a hand in crafting the distinct flavor of Four Roses Bourbon.
Check out the video below to learn more about Brian.
While you may think the word “perfect” eludes to the quality of the drink, and we won’t argue, the Perfect Manhattan is a spin on the classic – using equal parts dry and sweet vermouth in the recipe to create the deliciously balanced taste.
With summertime in full swing, who wouldn’t want to enjoy the outdoors with a perfect chilled cocktail to sip on? Check out the recipe here.
One of the best opportunities to mingle with our fans during the summer months is at the Kentucky Forecastle Festival’s Bourbon Lodge, July 15-17, in Louisville.
The Forecastle Festival draws tens of thousands of music fans from across the world to Louisville in July, but as you may know, there is much more to this event than music.
We want to introduce you to Manager, Warehouse Operations David Martin at our Four Roses Warehouse and Bottling Facility. He keeps himself very busy tracking each barrel that goes in and out of the warehouses, and making sure those barrels are marked with the correct recipe. All of this to ensure that our handcrafted Bourbon is aging exactly where it should be.
The Old Fashioned is a cocktail with a rich history, much like the Four Roses brand. Legend has it, that in the 1880s, a bartender at Louisville’s historic Pendennis Club created the concoction, and it became the first mixed drink to be called a cocktail.
With National Bourbon Heritage Month coming up in September, now is the perfect time to begin perfecting your Old Fashioned. Watch the video below to learn how to handcraft your own, and cheers to tradition.
We really keep ourselves busy during the summer and fall months, when Bourbon celebrations and festivals allow us the opportunity to mingle with our fans, including Mellow Moments Club members. Read on to find out what’s happening – and come see us if you get the chance.
From July 15 – 17, Four Roses will be hanging with our friends at the Forecastle Festival’s Bourbon Lodge, featuring product samples, cocktails, food and a full schedule of exclusive Bourbon experiences.
The Old Fashioned is as classic of a cocktail as they come. And there’s no better time to sip an Old Fashioned than on National Bourbon Day, which is June 14. Check out the video below, and then mix one up for yourself.
It goes without saying that National Bourbon Day – June 14 – is one of our favorite days of the entire year. Think about it…we have an entire day dedicated to America’s National Spirit. If you’re at a loss for ways to celebrate, we’re here to help.
