A chat with Al Young on 50 years in the bourbon business

Here’s that feature story I was working on all last week about Al Young, brand ambassador of Four Roses who has worked for half a century in the bourbon business. There was a lot to cover, but the main focus was on the new 2017 Limited Edition 50th Anniversary Small Batch Bourbon.

I’ve written it here already, because I was able to snag an early sample. It’s amazing and should be tried by everyone who loves whiskey. It’s sweet, beautiful, deep, warm but not hot and melts like butter.

I’m currently searching for a bottle to add to my bar, so if you happen to see some, please let me know ASAP. They’re hard to find.

But lucky for you, you’re reading this blog. And I’ve got the scoop on a pop-up tasting event for Al’s new bourbon. You can find out the details here, but a little birdie told me exactly where it’ll be held, because they aren’t releasing the details until Monday.

Figure out the riddle below. And I’ll see you Monday, June 19, at 5:30 p.m.

You’ll find us downtown near Third.
In a loft above a business known by a three-letter word.
It’s a place that mostly sells beer.

But Four Roses has always had a home here.

Al Young will be on hand to greet,
And with you he will share a treat.
You must act fast and don’t delay,
Or you’ll have to wait to try his bourbon another day.
