Company email (October 2017)
"The neck wrap that we use for our single barrel is NOT real leather. It is 100% synthetic. According to your website, this has caused us to be classified as non-vegan. As a brand that uses no animal products in our Bourbon or processes, I believe we qualify to be categorized as vegan."

Note from Sam (February 2015):
"Four Roses Single Barrel has a leather wrap around the top of the bottle, making it non-vegan. You can see the wrap here:

I sent the company this message:
"Is the wrap on the top of the Four Roses Single Reserve bottle real leather?"

And I received this reply from
"Yes it is.""

Company email:
"The closest thing to animal we have in our products is the yeast that we use to ferment our grains...and I'm sure that doesn't count. So to answer your question, no
there are no animal ingredients either in the product or used in any part of the processing in the US, Europe, Japan, or anywhere else in the world."
