About Four Gate Kelvin Collaboration III Batch 12 Bourbon Whiskey
Four Gate is a whiskey company from Louisville, Kentucky that specializes in sourced whiskey blends. The company blends the highest quality whiskey available to create new, unique, and exciting batches of barrel-finished craft American whiskey that you won't find anywhere else. They work closely with the barrel experts at the family-owned, Louisville-based Kelvin Cooperage to find new and innovative ways for barrel finishing their releases. Four Gate was founded in 2018 by Bill Straub, who is the company’s Chief Blending Officer, and Bob D’Antoni, the Chief Barrel Officer. While Straub has leveraged his knowledge of bourbon and the industry as founder and Editor-In-Chief of ModernThirst.com, D’Antoni is a successful local entrepreneur who has used his connections to establish relationships to get his hands on some terrific bourbon.
Four Gate Whiskey Company started releasing its small-batch expressions with innovative finishes in 2019, gaining much critical acclaim from the start. Batches 1, 2, 3, 4, 6, 7, and 8 all received Whisky Advocate scores of 90 points or higher, and various well-regarded writers and online reviewers named batches 1, 3, 4, 5, 6, and 10 among the top 10 American whiskeys of 2019 and 2020.
Four Gate Kelvin Collaboration III Batch 12 is the third iteration of the series. To craft this dazzling blend of a 9-year-old with a mash bill of 75% corn, 13% rye and 8% malted barley Kentucky Straight Bourbon and 12-year-old Kentucky Straight Bourbon with a mash bill of 74% corn, 18% rye and 8% malted barley, Four Gate decided to use the popular dual-use finish barrels that once held both fortified wine and dark rum, namely PX Sherry-Rum casks from Virago Spirits in Richmond, VA. A decadent, full bodied whiskey, it was bottled at 123.7 proof with only 1,647 bottles produced. A stunning addition to the award-winning The Kelvin Collaboration Series.

About American Whiskey
There are two main representatives of the American whiskey family, bourbon, and rye, but some other spirits don't fall into those two strictly regulated categories.
There's equally strictly regulated American single malt, made from 100% malted barley, Tennessee whiskey, essentially bourbon filtered through maple charcoal and aged in new charred oak barrels.
And then there's moonshine, a high proof (150- 170 proof) distilled spirit mainly made out of corn which gained popularity during the prohibition.
