George Remus was known as the "King of Bootleggers." So it obviously knew how to have a good time... and fight the power. MGP Ingredients will now pay homage to Remus with the limited release of their first reserve bourbon.
Due November 13, Remus' birthday, George Remus Repeal Reserve Bourbon is crafted at MGP's 170-year-old distillery in Lawrenceburg, Indiana. It's a high rye style that allows the distillery team to experiment with their various mash bills and reserves of aged bourbon. This limited release is a medley of two mash bills from 2005/2006.
"Remus Repeal Reserve is our most complex release to-date, and you can taste it in the glass," says Andrew Mansinne, Vice President of Brands, MGP Ingredients, via a statement. "It starts out on the palate with sweet, buttery toffee, and gives way to spicier rye, raisin and fig, and then comes back full circle. That layering of flavors stems from the talent of our distillery team to weave multiple mash bills into a beautifully smooth style intended for sipping and pure pleasure."
Remus Repeal Reserve is packaged in an art deco bottle that is reflective of the times that shaped the Remus' legacy. This bourbon retails for $74.99 per 750ml bottle and will be available in limited quantities as of November 13 in Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Kentucky, Minnesota, Missouri, Nebraska, Ohio and Wisconsin.
