Bourbon Reinvented: Three Cheers for Four Roses

Established in 1888, Four Roses, one of the most important distilleries in America, enjoyed an untarnished reputation and unparalleled popularity prior to Prohibition. In an effort to remain relevant—and functioning—the distillery was purchased by Seagram’s following those dry days of American history. The parent company then relocated the distillery to Indiana, where they produced, in the United States, a lesser product under the Four Roses name—a harsh grain whiskey that was not actually bourbon. Internationally, Seagram’s continued to sell Four Roses as bourbon, keeping the production methods (and brand’s good name) intact. But during its lesser years, Four Roses became associated, domestically, with the term “rot gut,” while Seagram’s simultaneously rose to become one of the largest distilleries in the country. In 1995, Master Distiller Jim Rutledge was recruited to revive the brand. A few years later, in 2002, Kirin Ichiban, a Japanese company, purchased the Four Roses and Al Young joined Jim Rutledge—both of whom are bourbon hall-of-famers—to reinvent the spirit. Japan has long since been the number one market for Four Roses. Since 2002, Four Roses has enjoyed a renaissance, reestablishing their relevance in the bourbon world. Now, the brand boasts some of the deepest stocks in bourbon, as well as a collection of single barrel batches that are not only exemplary but are also affordable. The brand is one of the most sought-after, highly regarded, and quality American whiskies in the world. Here at Astor Wines & Spirits, we have exclusive inventory of some of these prized bourbons, which reach their pinnacle with our private single cask series.
