FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Non-chill filtered and 104 proof, Small Batch Select to appear on more shelves this spring
LAWRENCEBURG, Ky. (March 30, 2021) – Four Roses Distillery’s acclaimed “fourth rose” will become available to more Bourbon lovers this spring.
Four Roses Small Batch Select is a non-chill filtered, 104-proof Bourbon, first introduced in 2019 to just five states as Four Roses’ much-anticipated first permanent product-line extension in more than a decade.
This spring Small Batch Select becomes available in Alabama, Arizona, Connecticut, Delaware, Louisiana, Maryland, Minnesota, Nevada, Oregon, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Virginia and Washington, D.C. The expansion brings the total to 30 states where Small Batch Select is available.
“We’re grateful for the positive reception to Small Batch Select as people are experiencing how our ten Bourbon recipes come together for distinctly different flavors across our portfolio,” said Brent Elliott, master distiller at Four Roses. “Small Batch Select is a taste all on its own as it brings out some of our Bourbon recipes that aren’t as forward facing in our other bottles, and it has that close to straight-from-the-barrel experience you get with it being non-chill filtered.”
The noted international media outlet Whisky Advocate rated Small Batch Select no. 3 in its Top Whiskies of 2019 list, the highest-ranked Bourbon on the list. Small Batch Select also earned a Gold Medal at the 2019 Sunset International Spirits Competition and 2020 Denver International Spirits Competition, along with Category Silver for Kentucky Bourbon at the 2020 World Whiskies Awards and Top 100 Spirits at the 2020 Ultimate Spirits Competition.
Elliott hand-selected and mingled barrels from six of Four Roses’ 10 distinct Bourbon recipes, each aged a minimum of 6 years, to create Small Batch Select. It features recipes Four Roses categorizes as OBSV, OBSK, OBSF, OESV, OESK and OESF. For more on Four Roses 10 Bourbon recipes, visit fourrosesbourbon.com/our-recipes/.
The suggested retail price for Small Batch Select is $59.99.
