Bourbon, the new way to a woman’s heart! The Wine Ladies TV! Wed Oct 26th
This week we deviate away from the grapevine and explore another beverage, a spirit that reports are showing is the NEW way to a woman’s heart included in the traditional flowers, candles and chocolate. Believe it or not, it is Bourbon. Yes its true, just recently Business Week Magazine attributed this phenomenon to a group of professional women, “The Bourbon Women” who have become quite enamored with Kentucky’s sweet spirit and are hosting bourbon tasting parties in major cities across North America. So joining us in studio this week on The Wine Ladies TV to give us the scoop on this phenomena and the new woman’s movement is Kentucky’s own Bourbon expert, Master Distiller for Four Roses Bourbon www.fourroses.us/ , Jim Rutledge.
The Legend of Four Roses
It began when Paul Jones, Jr., the founder of Four Roses Bourbon, became smitten by the beauty of a Southern belle. It is said that he sent a proposal to her, and she replied that if her answer were “Yes,” she would wear a corsage of roses on her gown to the upcoming grand ball. Paul Jones waited for her answer excitedly on that night of the grand ball…when she arrived in her beautiful gown, she wore a corsage of four red roses. He later named his Bourbon “Four Roses” as a symbol of his devout passion for the lovely belle, a passion he thereafter transferred to making his beloved Four Roses Bourbon.
