Spirit Cartel, the relentless hunter of the handcrafted and offbeat, is on a quest to find a UK Brand Ambassador for the iconic bourbon brand, Four Roses. The brand is seeking a whiskey whiz kid to be the heart and soul of Four Roses in the UK.

“This is a highly desirable career-defining opportunity that no bourbon enthusiast will want to miss”, says Spirit Cartel Consiglieri, Charles Marshall. “We want a grain guru who eats, sleeps and breathes Four Roses, one of the most exciting Bourbons in the UK today. Oh and they must be able to mix a mean drink and spin a yarn”.

The charismatic candidate will epitomise Four Roses’ style and elegance; prepared to challenge the preconceived norm – a leader not a follower.  A sour mash sage with flair and a thorough understanding of the bar industry, excellent trade relationships and the ability to engage the drinks fraternity with Four Roses.

Only Four Roses handcrafts 10 distinct and extraordinary bourbon recipes, mingling them by hand to create a family of award-winning brands. Artistry such as this is how the brand survived Prohibition, The Great Depression, Two World Wars, and 40 years of exile from the US, to be named American Whisky Distiller of the Year in 2011, 2012, 2013, and 2015 by Whisky Magazine.

“The Brand Ambassador will be an integral part of our Four Roses campaign in 2016 and beyond, building momentum for a brand that is rich in heritage and provenance. It’s a fantastic chance to put in to play your spirits knowledge, marketing flair and business acumen on one of the spirit world’s truly great names.,” says Charles Marshall.
