Four Roses Employees Volunteer to Maintain Banks of River that Feeds Distillery
For Immediate Release – October 1, 2021
Bourbon company’s fifth annual Salt River Clean Up removes litter and debris
LAWRENCEBURG, Ky. – With Kentucky’s natural water resources at the core of the Commonwealth’s Bourbon industry, Four Roses employees gathered in late September for a volunteer service day to help maintain the riverbank around the Salt River.
The 150-mile spring-fed Salt River flows beside the Four Roses Distillery in Lawrenceburg and stretches east to near Parksville and west to the Ohio River near West Point. Limestone-rich water from the Salt River is one of Four Roses’ primary ingredients in handcrafting its award-winning Bourbons.
“The Salt River is not only important to Four Roses, but to all of Kentucky as a valuable natural resource,” said Four Roses Master Distiller Brent Elliott. “We want to help preserve this waterway for today, tomorrow and the future.”
The group removed debris from the dam and concrete area, as well as the highway where it forks on each side of the river, and along the roadway.
