Ten Unique Bourbon Recipes

Four Roses is the only Bourbon distillery that combines five proprietary yeast strains with two separate mashbills to produce 10 distinct and handcrafted Bourbon recipes, each with its own unique character, spiciness and rich fruity flavors.

One of the recipes has been selected for Four Roses Single Barrel. Four are mingled to create Four Roses Small Batch. Up to 10 recipes are mingled for Four Roses Yellow. From time to time, a small number of exceptionally smooth and complex barrels from any one of the 10 recipes present themselves to our Master Distiller, who selects them to be bottled as either one of our Limited Edition Single Barrel Releases, or to be mingled together as one of our Limited Edition Small Batch Releases.
