The range includes a 90-proof premium bourbon called Four Roses Small Batch, Yellow Label and Single Barrel, which are all made at the Four Roses distillery in Lawrenceburg, Kentucky.
Rutledge is flying over from the US to host bourbon master classes in Glasgow, Edinburgh, Brighton and London - the four cities where Four Roses
has been trialled.
Rutledge, who is current chairman of the Kentucky Bourbon Festival, said: "There's no doubt that the single-barrel and small-batch craze has pulled this industry up by its bootstraps. Four Roses is quickly earning a reputation as one of the finest names in the bourbon world."
