Four Roses Distillery and OSMO Salt Create Toasted Vanilla Bourbon Salt

Because it's January and there is no real bourbon news... Four Roses and OSMO have announced a collaboration to release toasted vanilla bourbon salt available for a limited time on OSMO Salt's website for $18.99.

Brent Elliott, Four Roses Master Distiller says:
As a brand built on a story of romance, we believe that the best way to enjoy bourbon is to share it with those you love. This salt allows Four Roses to shine through in a way unlike anything we've done before. The toasted vanilla flavors perfectly balance out the spice notes of our Small Batch Bourbon, and the brininess of the salt subtly enhances the whiskey's flavor and smoothness even more.

In order to create this salt:

Clay-based red sea salt was harvested from between Hawaiian lava rocks, and then purified to give it its vibrant red color before allotting the salt time to breathe for optimal full flavor absorption. Four Roses Small Batch Bourbon was then poured over the crystals, which evaporates naturally once a combination of solar light and wind is applied. This process allows the bourbon and the salt to maintain their natural compositions. The result is a full body infused flavor that maintains the integrity of both the natural salt and Four Roses Small Batch Bourbon.

My Take

Oof... slow week when I'm writing about salt. I have nothing relevant to add. If you or a friend like a bit of salt garnish on your bourbon drinks, this might be a good buy or could be a good gift for Valentines Day.
