2020 Single Barrel George Remus Straight Bourbon Whiskey is a cask strength, custom retail selection from MGP’s historic Lawrenceburg, Indiana distillery
LAWRENCEBURG, Ind., September 15, 2020 – MGP has launched their first Single Barrel release for George Remus Bourbon. George Remus Single Barrel Straight Bourbon Whiskey is offered at cask strength in two mash bills that reflect MGP’s signature high-rye bourbon character. Participating accounts in the Single Barrel program met with the distillery team in Lawrenceburg in early 2020 to taste, select and order their preferred mash bills. Bottled annually, the George Remus Single Barrel Bourbon program is an entirely custom offer shipped in personalized packaging to each participating retailer, together with the original barrel. Select retailers have also opted to label their bottles as a 2020 Single Barrel Selection to showcase the collectible aspect of this new offering.
“We’re proud to make some of the finest bourbon whiskey in the country at our Lawrenceburg distillery,” says Andrew Mansinne, Vice President of Brands. “Demand for our 2020 George Remus Single Barrel Selection has exceeded expectations in our inaugural year. We are thrilled to work with our valued retail and distributor partners to offer this limited-edition Single Barrel selection of George Remus.”
George Remus Single Barrel Straight Bourbon Whiskey is available through select retailers this month. MGP also released Rossville Union Single Barrel Straight Rye Whiskey, a bottled-in-bond (100-proof) limited-edition release, in August 2020.
