Celebrate National Bourbon Heritage Month with the Kentucky Derby Museum and Four Roses Bourbon as we host a special 50th anniversary dinner in honor of Senior Brand Ambassador and bourbon legend Al Young.
Join us Thursday, September 7th at 6-9pm for a delicious, five-course bourbon-centric, progressive style dinner served throughout the Museum. Each course will pair perfectly with a different Four Roses Bourbon.
As guests make their way to different areas of the Museum for the next course, Four Roses Master Distiller Brent Elliott and the Museum’s Bourbon Authority Fred Minnick will host a brief introduction and discussion of each bourbon pairing. The evening will end with a toast to Young with a pour of his hand-selected 2017 Limited Edition 50th Anniversary Small Batch Bourbon, just released this June.
Al Young has served in a variety of roles at Four Roses for the past 50 years. In 1990, he became Distillery Manager and in 2007 was named Four Roses Brand Ambassador, a role that has him crossing the country sharing the story of Four Roses and its Bourbon. He is also historian for the storied 129-year-old Kentucky Bourbon brand, having researched archives, distillery records, news accounts, photos and artifacts in order to write the coffee-table book Four Roses: The Return of a Whiskey Legend, published in 2010. Al Young was inducted into the Whisky Magazine Hall of Fame in 2015 and is also a member of the Kentucky Distillers’ Association Kentucky Bourbon Hall of Fame.
