Four Roses Distillery
The legend of Four Roses 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. He later named his Bourbon "Four Roses" as a symbol of his devout passion for the lovely belle, a passion he thereafter transferred to making his beloved Four Roses Bourbon.
Paul, Jr’s passion for his Bourbon exists today in the hearts of the Master Distiller and all Four Roses employees. Product quality is always the first concern, as you can see from the careful selection of grains, unique to the mashbill, to the careful nurturing and preservation of the multiple yeast strains, which give every Four Roses Bourbon its unique character and rich, fruity flavors. The gentle maturation of each barrel in one-of-a-kind single story rack warehouses is a Four Roses innovation that allows the Bourbon to age gently inside the barrels in uniform fashion while remaining undisturbed throughout the years.
