At Four Roses, we’re celebrating the change of seasons and gearing up for fall. Autumn is one of our favorite times of the year, so we’re excited to share with you a few of our favorite fall traditions. And, we have everything you need to get in the spirit, from cozy sweaters, to seasonal cocktail recipes and road trip destinations.

Check out Brent’s fall favorites.

Kentucky is known for its seasons. The yearly extremes contribute to the high quality of Kentucky Bourbon. The lows are as important as the highs, and in between we get my two favorite seasons, spring and fall. In Kentucky, the refreshing temperatures, changing leaves, drying air and the Kentucky Bourbon Festival introduce fall.

Fall is a special time for my family and me. We love the outdoors and every fall try to take advantage of the mild temperatures while the leaves are still falling and before winter sneaks in and the days become too short. We like attending local festivals, camping, and preparing for one of our favorite holidays, Halloween.

I began my career at Four Roses 13 years ago this September, right in the middle of the Kentucky Bourbon Festival. The unintentional, but perfect timing was my introduction to this special industry. It also marked my returning to Kentucky after having lived away for eight years. That September forever tied memories of the fall season to the excitement I felt to be back home in Kentucky, joining the wonderful team at Four Roses.

Regardless of how you enjoy the fall season, I hope this is a good one for you.
