Four Roses for UK from Jim Rutledge

15 June, 2007

American master distiller Jim Rutledge is launching Four Roses Bourbon in the UK.

The range includes a 90-proof premium bourbon called Four Roses Small Batch, Yellow Label and SingleáBarrel, which are all made at theáFour Roses distillery in Lawrenceburg, Kentucky.

Rutledge is flying over from the US to host bourbon master classes in Glasgow, Edinburgh, Brighton and London - the four cities where Four Roses

has been trialled.

Rutledge, who is current chairman of the Kentucky Bourbon Festival, said: "There's no doubt that the single-barrel and small-batch craze has pulled this industry up by its bootstraps. Four Rosesáis quickly earning a reputation asáone of the finest names in the bourbonáworld."
