All 10 of the distillery’s bourbon recipes (made from five different strains of yeast and two different mashbills) are blended to create Four Roses Yellow Label.
The distillery uses single-story barrel warehouses, which helps minimize temperature differences during the aging process.
Though it was the top-selling bourbon in the US in the decades after Prohibition, Four Roses Bourbon was only available in Europe and Japan from the late 1950s until 2002. (American bottlings during the period were a blended whiskey, not a bourbon.)
If you have not already drank this bourbon, which you can still do, contact the distillery! This bottle is incredibly rare and they buy bottles with historical value. I can't guarantee how much they will pay but I used to work there and I know they would be interested.
Four roses, I have a bottle of Four Roses that is dated July 1914 and has never been opened. Would it still be safe to drink? The seal on top states (The highest grade of whiskey KNOWN to the trade Four Roses Absolute Purity GUARANTEED by Paul Jones & Co. Louisville, KY.). How rare would this whiskey be and value. The whiskey in bottle is down about the shoulder. The yeast strain I was wondering if it is still the same today as it was a hundred years ago and there's a way you could find out.
