Remus Highest Rye Bourbon - 6 Years Old(1)

Lawrenceburg, Indiana-based Ross & Squibb Distillery announced the newest extension of its Remus Bourbon brand family: Remus Highest Rye Straight Bourbon Whiskey. A permanent, year-round line extension, Remus Highest Rye Bourbon is available at retail nationwide at a suggested price of $54.99 per 750 ml bottle. 

Aged six years and offered at 109 proof, this expression packs as much rye into a bourbon as possible, with a mash bill consisting of 51% corn, 39% rye and 10% malted rye. 

“With Remus Highest Rye Bourbon, our team pays tribute to Ross & Squibb Distillery’s rye tradition by selecting a mash bill that features the most rye a bourbon can offer,” said Ross & Squibb Distillery Master Distiller Ian Stirsman in a news release.

Named after two historic Lawrenceburg, Indiana, distilleries – Rossville Distillery and W.P. Squibb & Co. – Ross & Squibb Distillery has a reputation for producing unique, high-quality ryes and high-rye bourbons dating back to 1847. Rye whiskey saw the peak of its popularity leading up to Prohibition and today is steadily gaining in popularity. 

“Our Remus Bourbon brand takes its inspiration from the finest bourbons of the Prohibition Era, and with Remus Highest Rye Bourbon we offer a salute to the enormous popularity of rye whiskey heading into this period,” said Shanae Randolph, Marketing Director-Brands for MGP’s Luxco Branded Spirits. “We believe rye drinkers and high-rye-bourbon drinkers alike will become fast fans of this newest addition to the Remus Bourbon brand family.” 

Founded in St. Louis in 1958 by the Lux Family, Luxco is a producer, supplier, importer and bottler of beverage alcohol products. The spirits portfolio includes well-known brands from four distilleries: Bardstown, Kentucky-based Lux Row Distillers; Lebanon, Kentucky-based Limestone Branch Distillery; Jalisco, Mexico-based Destiladora González Lux; and Ross & Squibb Distillery in Lawrenceburg, Indiana.
