ST. LOUIS, September 21, 2021 / PRNewswire / – Luxco announces that George Remus Single Barrel selections are intended for participating retailers. Handpicked barrels of bourbon arrive 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 asked to taste and select a barrel from two unique mash bills. This process was carried out virtually, with participating retailers connecting to the distillers online and by phone. Distilled in the historic MGP distillery in Lawrenceburg, Indiana, the two mash notes reflect the brand’s high-rye bourbon character and come straight from the barrel. Retailers were able to personalize the tag on their 2021 unique keg selection to enhance the collectible look of this special offer.
“We are delighted to bring back our barrel program for a second year, and we anticipate this to be an annual tradition for many years to come,” said David Whitmer, MGP Master Blender. “We are proud to select some truly memorable bourbon casks for the Remus Cask Program, and we have no doubts that this year’s selections are sure to be a favorite with George Remus brand bourbon fans.”
