Whisky Club - Four Roses Masterclass
Monday, 23rd October 2017, 6.30 - 8.30pm
Hosted by Master Distiller Brent Elliott
Four Roses has a history stretching back to the mid-late 1800s & established their current distillery site in Lawrenceburg, Kentucky in 1910. Having gradually risen in popularity in the 1930s & 40s, Four Roses was discontinued in the 1950s & only resurrected in the early 2000s to great acclaim.
The current master distiller is Brent Elliott, who we are excited to welcome to the store to host this fabulous tasting. Since he was appointed to the role in 2015, Four Roses have continued to impress & the quality of the whiskey produced as high as ever. Particularly impressive are the distillery's Single Batch Limited Editions, of which three will be poured by Brent at this tasting.
Guests will sample a number of Bourbons including Four Roses Original, Small Batch, Single Barrel & Small Batch Limited Edition 2015, 2016 & the brand new 2017.
Tickets for this event are £25 redeemable against any purchase of Four Roses on the evening of the tasting.
