George Remus Single Barrel selections arriving at retailers just in time for National Bourbon Heritage Month
2021 marks the second year the program has been offered to retailers, showcasing the signature high-rye bourbon style of MGP’s historic Lawrenceburg, Indiana distillery
ST. LOUIS (Sept. 21, 2021) — Luxco announces George Remus Single Barrel selections are headed to participating retailers. The handpicked barrels of bourbon are arriving at retailers in September to celebrate National Bourbon Heritage Month.
This year’s selections mark the second year of the George Remus Single Barrel program. In March retailers were invited to taste and select a barrel from two unique mash bills. This process was done virtually, with participating retailers connecting with distillers online and over the phone. Distilled at MGP’s historic distillery in Lawrenceburg, Indiana, both mash bills reflect the brand’s high-rye bourbon character and are offered at cask strength. Retailers were able to customize the label on their 2021 single barrel selection to enhance the collectible aspect of this special offering.
“We are excited to bring our barrel program back for a second year, and we plan for it to be an annual tradition for many years to come,” said MGP Master Blender David Whitmer. “We take pride in choosing truly memorable bourbon barrels for the Remus barrel program, and we are confident this year’s selections are certain to be a favorite among bourbon fans of the George Remus brand.”
