    Four Roses In Australia??

    Folks in Australia would well know that the Aussie distributor of Wild Turkey has in Oz lost distribution of this brand. That company is Pernod - Ricard.
    Wild Turkey will now be distributed by Campari.

    So many would think Pernod - Ricard now "Bourbonless" but this is not the case at all. They also control Four Roses!

    So if you're an Aussie on this forum, show your support and how much you would love to see Four Roses here!
    And if you're in the US or elsewhere, please get on here and tell us how good the Four Roses range is and maybe, just maybe Pernod - Ricard will take notice and bring the range down under!!!

    Pernod Ricard used OWN Wild Turkey they sold it to Campari. Pernod Ricard has nothing to do with Four Roses it is owned by Kirin a japanese company which makes me wonder why you don't get it.

    According to the Pernod Ricard website, they entered (in 2002) a "Partnership agreement with Kirin for distribution of Four Roses (bourbon)."

    It doesn't mention in which territories they control distribution, but a Four Roses link elsewhere on their site take you to the German Four Roses homepage.

    Losing Wild Turkey is one hell of a big loss. Didn't WT sell 20% or 30% of their bourbon in Austrailia?

    We sort of have Four Roses in Australia.... The export version of McKenna is made by Four Roses and is available in most Aussie retail stores. Then there's Bulleit....

    Great sense of humour there Cam.

    I'll admit I haven't tried McKenna but the Bulliet has been garbage since it sropped from 90pf.

    I believe Australia, particularly Western Australia then South Australia are the
    biggest markets outside the US for Bourbon
