Join Four Roses at Railbird
blog | 8/12/2021
Railbird Music Festival is returning to the beautiful grounds of Keeneland in Lexington, Kentucky, after a brief hiatus in 2020. The two-day festival will be held Saturday, August 28 and Sunday, August 29 in celebration of music, bourbon, and equine. This year we are thrilled to announce that Four Roses is the designated Featured Bourbon Sponsor.
You can enjoy Four Roses along with all of the other hand-selected barrels from Kentucky’s finest distilleries and immersive whiskey experiences when you visit The Rickhouse. These Railbird Select bottles will be available for purchase for VIP ticket buyers first, but don’t worry, there will be some for all guests to sample during the festival. This highly curated Bourbon experience will include Sip & Savor demonstrations as well as unique culinary experiences with world-renowned chefs in a studio kitchen setting.
The Four Roses Railbird Barrel Selection took place on Friday, May 14 with Justin Sloan & Justin Thompson with Justins’ House of Bourbon, and David Helmers with Railbird. After sampling and analyzing 10 of our unique bourbon recipes an OESK aged for 10 years & four months was chosen to commemorate the 2nd Annual Railbird Festival. Our high rye, hand-picked Single Barrel has hints of ripe plum and cherries, includes a robust, full body, mellow palate with a smooth and delicately long finish.
The selected barrel will be sold at The Rickhouse and the store until the product is gone. The bottles will be available for pick up at Justins’ House of Bourbon during the festival.
During the festival Four Roses will have an activation space called the Four Roses Winner’s Circle. We will have a horse name generator where guests will be able answer a few questions and it will produce a horse name specific to each guest. There will be a life-sized horse for photo opps, as well as specialty cocktails and straight bourbon at the bar.
This year’s festival is one you won’t want to miss, so we hope to see you there.
