Managing the return of a 
Bourbon legend.

The Story

Four Roses hired BCH to re-Brand this iconic brand and re-introduce the product to the US. Our initial re-launch of the Brand into the US was in 2005, focusing the Brand on Four Roses unique process and its heritage. It is because of their unique process that Four Roses can so expertly handcraft its bourbons.

Our strategy initially included two stages. One: re-introduce first in Kentucky, the mecca of bourbon where 95% of all bourbon is made. If we can be a success in Kentucky, we can win across the US. Two: Focus marketing on the flagship Single Barrel product then eventually itnegrate the other products. As momentum grew we introduced a Third stage: Leverage our unique process of mingling 10 bourbons to firmly establish our Brand position of “true handcrafting.”
