blog | 03/16/2020
Our “fourth rose” will become available to more Bourbon lovers this year.
Launched last year as our distillery’s first permanent product-line extension in more than a decade, Small Batch Select had previously been available in just five states. The non-chill filtered, and 104 proof Bourbon will now expand into more than a dozen new states.
New markets where Small Batch Select will be available in the coming months include Colorado, Florida, Illinois, Indiana, Massachusetts, Michigan, Missouri, New Jersey, North Carolina, Ohio, Tennessee, Washington and Wisconsin. These will join our home state of Kentucky, along with New York, California, Texas and Georgia where Small Batch Select is currently available.
Here’s what Brent Elliott had to say: I look forward to sharing this unique offering with more Bourbon drinkers across the country. Small Batch Select showcases some of our Bourbon recipes and flavors that aren’t as forward facing in the rest of our lineup of Single Barrel, Small Batch and Four Roses Bourbon.
Small Batch Select is an extension of what we do at Four Roses, and what we do well. Balancing notes of candied fruit with warmth and spice, it’s enjoyable to both casual drinkers and Bourbon connoisseurs.
Small Batch Select was our distillery’s first permanent product-line extension since 2006 and is Brent’s biggest addition to the storied history of our 132-year-old brand since he became master distiller in 2015. At the end of 2019, the noted international media outlet Whisky Advocate rated Small Batch Select No. 3 in its Top Whiskies of 2019 list, and it was the highest ranked Bourbon on the list.
As you may know, we combine two mashbills with five proprietary yeast strains to produce 10 distinct Bourbon recipes, each with its own unique characteristics. Master Distiller Elliott hand-selected and mingled six of Four Roses’ 10 Bourbon recipes, each aged a minimum of 6 years, to create Small Batch Select. It features recipes OBSV, OBSK, OBSF, OESV, OESK and OESF.
