MGP Ingredients has announced the release of their first reserve bourbon: George Remus Repeal Reserve.
Named after the “King of the Bootleggers,” George Remus Repeal Reserve will debut on November 13, the birthday of its namesake.
The whiskey will be presented in a series of events leading up to December 5, Repeal Day, the celebration of the end of Prohibition. Available in select markets, Remus Repeal Reserve Bourbon is crafted at MGP’s 170-year-old distillery in Lawrenceburg, Indiana.
Remus Repeal Reserve Bourbon is a high rye style. This release is a medley of mash bills from 2005/2006. The bourbon is comprised of 50% 2005 Bourbon (21% Rye), 15% 2006 Bourbon (36% Rye) and 35% 2006 Bourbon (21% Rye). The final blend is 94 proof.
“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,” says Andrew Mansinne, Vice President of Brands, MGP Ingredients.
This bourbon retails for a suggested $74.99 per 750-ml bottle and will be available throughout the George Remus distribution network in Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Kentucky, Minnesota, Missouri, Nebraska, Ohio and Wisconsin.
