George Remus Single Barrel to Hit Retailers This Month


September 22, 2021

George Remus Single Barrel selections are on their way to participating retailers, per an announcement by Luxco. The hand-picked barrels of bourbon will arrive at retailers in September to celebrate National Bourbon Heritage Month. 

Bottled as part of 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 distillery in Lawrenceburg, Ind., both mash bills are high-rye and the bourbon is bottled 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,” MGP Master Blender David Whitmer said in a news release. “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.”
