Lawrenceburg Bourbon Co. Debuts Pour for the Roses

Lawrenceburg Bourbon Co. of Lawrenceburg, Kentucky, announced the release of the distillery’s inaugural Pour for the Roses, a commemorative Kentucky straight bourbon whiskey to celebrate the 150th running of the Kentucky Derby.  

Pour for the Roses is an 8-year-old age-stated bourbon, presented single barrel and cask strength. This unfiltered bourbon comes out of the gate at 126.3 proof.

Available only in Kentucky, the inaugural Pour for the Roses release is from one single barrel, with a total yield of 150 bottles. Lawrenceburg Bourbon debuts a new mash bill with Pour for the Roses of 75% corn, 21% rye and 4% malted barley.

LBC founder and distiller Greg Keeley selected this special barrel from dozens of starters. “Pour for the Roses was super exciting for the team,” says Keeley. “Kentucky is all about horses and bourbon, and we are proud to play our small part, with this limited, one barrel release. We hope the punters enjoy it as much as we did.”

The label features the LBC kangaroo surrounded by red roses. The artwork was inspired by the paintings of the renowned, Brushmen of the Bush, rural Australian artists, from Broken Hill, that took Australian art to the world beginning in the 1940s. The group includes the late Eric Minchin, Hugh Schulz and John Pickup. 

Each bottle is personally signed by the Wannabe Distiller, and presented in a burlap sack, reminiscent of a thoroughbred’s feed bag.  A must-have for racing and bourbon enthusiasts alike.

Pour for the Roses celebrates the 150th Kentucky Derby with 150 bottles at $150. It is available exclusively from the LBC gift shop beginning April 12.
