Four Roses Small Batch Bourbon
The history of Four Roses Bourbon is a love story from the very heart of Kentucky, the picturesque and historic town of Lawrenceburg – making it the perfect spirit for Valentine’s. It began when Paul Jones Jr., the brand’s founder, became smitten by the beauty of a Southern belle. He sent a proposal to her, and she replied that if her answer were “Yes”, she would wear a corsage of four roses on her gown to an upcoming ball – which she duly did.
And today, roses feature heavily on Four Roses’ Small Batch bourbon – from the cut glass rose in the centre of the label, to the bottle resembling the shape of a rosebud when held upside down!
Small Batch has been one of British bartenders’ favourite bourbons and, with online sales having tripled in the past year, it’s a ‘go-to’ spirit as people have sought to replicate bourbon-based cocktails – such as the Old Fashioned or Manhattan – that they used to enjoy out on the town. Why not try a special Valentines Cocktail
40ml Four Roses Small Batch. 50ml cranberry juice. 5ml lime juice. 5ml sugar syrup. Ginger beer as required.
Shake all the ingredients bar the ginger beer with ice. Pour into a glass and top with chilled ginger beer.
If you are opening a bottle, and want to keep the contents fresh the Farfalli Bottle Stopper is a great gift idea. An elegant bottle stopper made in stainless steel with a red carbon fibre top, which comes pesented in its own packaging.
