This month the selection is George Remus Bourbon, the flagship bourbon brand for MGP. This small batch bourbon is a high-rye blend of bourbons from MGP. With a predominant focus on cherry in its nose and palate, George Remus straight bourbon, delivers a rich sip from start to finish. The rye plays nicely in the finish providing just the right pop to round things out. This is an easy sipper that’s full of flavor, which will help to remind consumers that MGP is capable of more than just producing whiskey for other brands!
Saying George Remus was just a bootlegger is like saying Hemingway was just a writer. In the 1920s, if baseball had Ruth, bourbon had Remus.
But this King George didn't reside in England, he was a son of Cincinnati. Starting as an apothecary, he soon found a loophole or two in the Volstead Act to craft bourbon for "medicinal purposes."
Knowing a great opportunity when he saw it, and a great bourbon when he created it, he began his Prohibition empire. And while he respected the Volstead Act, to King George, it was but a mere suggestion.
