Al Young, Four Roses Brand Ambassador, is also a historian and the author of Four Roses: The Return of a Whiskey Legend – so you can be sure he knows his stuff! With nearly five decades of experience in the Bourbon industry spanning every facet of production, Al is second to none in his ability to speak on the unique process of producing Four Roses’ High-Rye Bourbons and the iconic distillery’s storied past, dating back to 1888. Like Four Roses, Al is distinguished in the industry: he is a 2011 Kentucky Bourbon Hall of Fame inductee and a 2015 Whisky Magazine Hall of Fame inductee. As engaging as he is legendary, Al welcomes the opportunity to share his vast knowledge of all things KY Bourbon, past and present, with you this afternoon. While you learn about Four Roses’ steady course through the United States turbulent history, you’ll experience a tasting showcasing the range of the company’s different brands and learn about what’s next for the industry from a man uniquely positioned to predict the future.
This is a tasting class, expect to taste a selection of whiskeys.
