Protecting a Key Resource in the Bourbon-Making Process
blog | 10/08/2021
At Four Roses we take pride in our efforts to promote and contribute to the vital mission of environmental conservation. Five years ago, we formed the Creating Shared Value (CSV) Committee. Part of the CSV Committee’s mission was to focus on environmental friendliness, targeted to the most important natural resource in the bourbon industry–water.
The 150-mile Salt River runs along-side the Four Roses Distillery and is a valuable natural resource to our team because it is the main water source for making our bourbons, which is why it’s so important to keep the river clean.
This year marked the fifth annual Salt River Clean Up at the distillery, an event where Four Roses employees volunteered to remove debris from the dam and concrete area, as well as the highway where it forks on each side of the river, and along the roadway. Without protecting our water source, we may not have water to use. We look forward to this event each year and are committed to preserving our water from the Salt River today, tomorrow and in the future.
