MGP’s 174-year-old distillery in Lawrenceburg, Indiana, began life as the Rossville Distillery in 1847 by George Ross, and is one of America’s last Prohibition era distilleries. The underground aquifer that produces limestone-filtered water, gave the rye whiskey a pure, unique taste. During Prohibition, George Remus was based in Cincinnati. He was within 200 miles of every shuttered whiskey warehouse in the country, including just 30 miles from Rossville Distillery. He even had warehousing grounds on the current day property. Seagrams bought Rossville Distillery in 1933. After a few more owners, MGP bought the distillery in 2011. They produce their proprietary brands, including George Remus Straight Bourbon Whiskey, Remus Repeal Reserve, Rossville Union Rye Whiskey, Eight & Sand Blended Bourbon Whiskey and Tanner’s Creek.
