Jim Rutledge, Four Roses Master Distiller, has a resume that reads like a Distillery’s dream.

Master Distiller at Four Roses since 1995, and a member of the inaugural class of the Bourbon Hall of Fame, Rutledge began his long career in the spirits industry with Seagram’s Louisville Research & Development operation in 1966.  That's more than 45 years in the Bourbon Industry.

In 2007, Rutledge was presented Malt Advocate Magazine’s Lifetime Achievement Award at WhiskyFest New York, and the following year, the leading liquor industry publication, Whisky Magazine, declared him Ambassador of the Year for American Whiskies as a part of their annual Icons of Whisky Awards.

Four Recipes Artfully Mingled in New Limited Edition Bourbon

Four Roses 2011 Limited Edition Small Batch Blooms

LAWRENCEBURG, Ky. (August 15, 2011) – Four Roses Distillery is adding to its collection of limited edition small batch bourbon expressions this September which mingles four recipes – aged between 11 and 13 years - of the distillery’s 10 unique recipes.

The 2011 Limited Edition Small Batch Bourbon presents aromas of honeysuckle, toasted oak, almond toffee, and spicy hints of nutmeg and cinnamon, with subtle fruit flavors of dried apricot, ripe plum, plus brown sugar, honey and dark chocolate covered cherries. 

Four Roses’ limited edition bourbon offerings have historically sold out quickly and been highly acclaimed by spirits critics.  Last year’s 2010 Limited Edition Small Batch Bourbon was rated third by Paul Pacult amongst the top 140 Five-Star Rated Spirits of the world in his renowned liquor industry publication The Spirit Journal.
