Once considered a lost brand by connoisseurs 35 years ago, Four Roses has embarked on a renaissance in Kentucky that's making waves in the Bourbon community. It all began when Paul Jones, Jr., the founder of Four Roses Bourbon, became smitten by the beauty of a Southern belle. It is said that he sent a proposal to her, and she replied that if her answer were "Yes," she would wear a corsage of roses on her gown to the upcoming grand ball. Paul Jones waited for her answer excitedly on that night of the grand ball…when she arrived in her beautiful gown, she wore a corsage of four red roses. What better moniker could there be for his devout passion to making this beloved bourbon? Today, the resurgence of Paul Jr.'s passion lives in the heart and mind of Master Distiller Jim Rutledge. From the careful selection of grains for each unique mashbill, to the gentle maturation of each barrel in a one-of-a-kind single story rack warehouses, Jim's care and attention to detail enables him to craft a unique spirit of unparalleled quality. Simply put, this is as good as bourbon gets.
