A vintage bottle of 6-year-old Four Roses bourbon, bottled at 80 proof and exported for the Italian market. The bottle comes in the original cardboard box. The owners of Four Roses, Seagram, removed the bourbon from the domestic market in the 1950s. It was replaced with a blended whiskey, but luckily the brand survived as an export product to Europe and Asia, where it became one of the most popular whiskeys. Four Roses bourbon was only reintroduced to the United States in 1994. The brand is now in the ownership of the Japanese Kirin Brewery Company, who acquired it from Pernod Ricard and Diageo in 2002.
