Four Roses Distillery and Ooni Pizza Ovens Release Limited Edition Bourbon Barrel Aged Honey for Summer Entertaining

The Heritage Bourbon Brand and Leader of Home Pizza Ovens Partner to Add a Sweet Touch to Homemade Pizzas and Cocktails 

LAWRENCEBURG, Ky., June 24, 2024 /PRNewswire/ — Today, Four Roses Distillery, the award-winning Kentucky-based bourbon brand, and Ooni Pizza Ovens, the creator and leader of the home pizza oven market, has announced the release of Ooni & Four Roses Bourbon Barrel Aged Honey. The new limited edition product is an ode to summer’s perfect pairing –  pizzas and cocktails – and taps into both brands’ dedication to bringing people together to create lasting memories.

This summer, Four Roses aims to shine a light on the versatility of bourbon, a spirit commonly reserved for the colder fall and winter months. To urge consumers to incorporate Four Roses into their summer rotation, the brand collaborated with Ooni Pizza Ovens to craft the perfect ingredient that can be mixed and matched, bringing together the elevated flavors of sweet and savory. To show just a few of the ways the Ooni & Four Roses Bourbon Barrel Aged Honey can be used, Four Roses’ lead mixologist, Abby Martinie, and Ooni’s chefs have created complementary cocktail and pizza pairings using the bourbon barrel aged honey to showcase different flavor profiles that can be enjoyed over cherished summer moments.

“I like offering different ways to enjoy bourbon, outside of its traditional expectation,” says Four Roses Brand Ambassador and Mixologist, Abby Martinie. “Four Roses is such an iconic brand, so it was fun to incorporate a fresh twist by infusing Small Batch’s delightful fruit and spice notes into a new product. Using the honey in these new cocktail recipes, and collaborating with Ooni’s team to develop flavor pairings, we crafted cocktails with refreshing, sessionable, and complementary flavor profiles, unique to their pizza recipes.”

The bourbon barrel aged honey was crafted in partnership with Bohman Bee Company, specialists in creating local raw honey. Once sourced, the honey was then aged in ex-Four Roses barrels that once aged its Small Batch bourbon. The barrels were freshly dumped and never rinsed to fully impart the richest essence of bourbon. The end result is a honey with tasting notes of ripened red berries and dried spices, perfect for drizzling on freshly made pizza and a sweetener in summer cocktails.

“At Ooni, we make high-quality, premium products that are both accessible and versatile, so creating a product with a like-minded brand such as Four Roses was an easy decision. It doesn’t get much better than pizza and cocktails with your friends and family,” says Ooni Pizza Ovens Founder & Co-CEO Kristian Tapaninaho. “We love working with brands that think a little differently and we’re super excited to see how creative our community can get with this complex, bourbon barrel-aged honey – both on their bakes and in their cocktail shakers!

I’m big into whiskies and bourbons alike. In fact, Four Roses has been my go-to bourbon to make an Old Fashioned ever since I visited the distillery in 2018. Being able to combine my love of whiskey and pizza by drizzling on this incredible bourbon honey is just awesome.”

The 10 ounce bottle of Ooni & Four Roses Bourbon Barrel Aged Honey is now available for purchase on Ooni Pizza Ovens’ website (SRP $16), as well as on ReserveBar as a bundle with Four Roses Small Batch Bourbon (SRP $51.99). Those visiting the Kentucky Bourbon Trail this summer can also purchase the honey at the Four Roses Distillery Visitor Center located in Lawrenceburg, Kentucky, while supplies last.
