Indiana’s Ross & Squibb Distillery, managed by MGP’s Luxco division, recently announced an addition to its Remus Bourbon brand portfolio … Remus Highest Rye Straight Bourbon Whiskey.
A statement from the distillery explained that this will be a permanent, year-round line extension, and Remus Highest Rye Bourbon is now available nationwide with a suggested price of $54.99 per 750 ml bottle.
In the release, the distiller noted that this bourbon was aged six years and clocks in at 109 proof. It features a mash bill 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 Master Distiller Ian Stirsman. “This bourbon delivers a sweet, rich fruit and maple aroma and a palate containing robust candied-fruit notes, followed by a lingering finish highlighted by notes of spicy cinnamon and saddle leather.”
Ross & Squibb Distillery is named after two historic Lawrenceburg, Indiana, distilleries; Rossville Distillery and W.P. Squibb & Co. They were known for making unique, high-quality ryes and high-rye bourbons dating back to 1847.
“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.”
