About Four Gate Split Stave By Kelvin Batch 4 Bourbon Whiskey
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 amongst the top 10 American whiskeys of 2019 and 2020.
Four Gate Whiskey Company’s Release #4, Split Stave™ by Kelvin is a Kentucky straight bourbon whiskey finished in innovative Split Stave™ casks designed and produced exclusively for Four Gate by Kelvin Cooperage. The casks for this release were built by breaking down a series of medium toast casks, a series of #2 char casks, and a series of #4 char casks, and reassembling them, alternating toasted staves and #2 char staves on some barrels, and toasted and #4 char staves on others. These barrels were then filled with a blend of a 5.5-year-old Kentucky straight bourbon and a 12-year-old Kentucky straight bourbon, and left to rest for five months. The whiskey was bottled uncut and unfiltered at 115.6 proof. Only 2,700 bottles of this inaugural Split Stave™ by Kelvin release were produced.

About Four Gate Whiskey Company
In 2018 Bill Straub and Bob D'Antoni, both whiskey enthusiasts, founded the Four Gate Whiskey Company in Kentucky and launched their mission to release extra small batches of unique combinations of whiskey and finish barrels. Specializing in sourced whiskey blends and partnering with Kelvin Cooperage, a family-owned barrel supplier founded in 1963 in Scotland and currently based in Louisville, the combinations of quality whiskey blends and used barrels they put together are truly ecclectic. From bourbon finished in cognac and dark rum casks to split stave casks, there is really no idea too wild for Four Gate and they make it work.
There are not many things more American than bourbon, and although most of it is produced in Kentucky, it can be produced all over the USA. It must be made with at least 51% corn and bottled at 40% ABV or higher. So why not give this American classic a try?
Dark cocoa powder with hints of creamy crème brûlée on the nose usher in oak, sweet custard and cinnamon on the palate. The finish is intense, long and rich, with the oak notes intermingling with dark chocolate and earthy tobacco.
