Double Gold Medal - The Fifty Best Bourbon 2022
American police radio codes originated in the 1930’s and were derived from early military codes. They ensured clear and concise communication over low-tech radios. “Code Four” informs the force that “everything is safe and good”.
Not only do we “Celebrate the American Spirit of our military and their loved ones” we also celebrate our first responders with our most powerful whiskey to date. The Code Four is dedicated to all law enforcement in America. Here’s to many Code Four’s for all of our law enforcement heroes!
The same mash build as our Guardian Bourbon, the Code Four is 99% corn and aged three years. The key difference is in our proofing. We still use our clean, fresh, Rocky Mountain water keeping this strong-arm straight bourbon at 115 proof (57.5% ABV). This is a dangerously delicious, sweet and flavorful cask strength whiskey.
