The legend of Four Roses as told by our tour guide, is one of true love. The founder of the distillery fell in head over heels in love with a local Southern Belle and asked that if she wished to say yes to his proposal, she should wear roses to the upcoming grand ball. She wore a corsage of four red roses, (holler!) and those flowers became the signature of his bourbon company, founded in 1888.
We had a fun time touring the distillery, learning some history, smelling the mash while trying not to inhale too much CO2, and sampling the different bourbon selections. Recommendation: you should definitely run out and buy Four Roses Small Batch immediately! It will change your life, or at least your afternoon.
