The Legend of Four Roses Bourbon
It 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.

Each of the tour experiences is quite different, alternatively focusing on process, history, facility, or brand legacy. The architecture at Four Roses is stunningly beautiful, but I may be biased...

Lovely campus. The new visitors center is gorgeous and homey with a fireplace, etc. Our guide was enthusiastic and provided a detailed overview of the distillation/maturation process. And the...

Of all the Bourbon Trail stops, this one gave an impactful experience. The tour guide, Anna, was exceptionally kind and clearly possessed an encyclopedic knowledge of the Four Roses history and development process. The personal touches Four Roses makes through the branding, history and distillery tour makes this bourbon personal and with that the best of all Kentucky straight bourbons. Highly encourage anyone who fancies themselves a fan of this truly American product to visit Four Roses and experience the difference yourself. Well done again Anna! Thank you!
The location is beautiful. The store is quite nice and fully stocked. My only critique and this is really a matter of taste. I would rather had paid a little more for the tasting and enjoyed a better set up - rather than a self serve, grab your glass and seat ambiance. Just my thoughts. I would still recommend Four Roses Distillery because it is beautiful.
