A flagship Straight Bourbon proves that MGP saved some of the good stuff for themselves.

George Remus Bourbon is named after a legendary Whiskey-man who operated on both sides of the law during Prohibition, earning the nickname "King of the Bootleggers." The George Remus line-up is comprised of high-rye Bourbons aged over five years. Owned by and made in one of the country’s most historic distilleries (MGP), George Remus is perfectly blended from premium stock to become your go-to Bourbon.

First thing first… George Remus is a line of really good Bourbon. It’s also the first flagship Bourbon produced, owned by MGP. George Remus Straight Bourbon is the entry-level for the range. The mash bill is not stated, but we know that MGP has five Bourbon mash bills in production. And while they could have blended them, we think that the flavor profile suggests their 60% corn, 36% rye, 4% malted barley mix. And it’s aged more than five years and bottled without chill-filtration at a lovely 47% ABV.

Smartass Corner:
The brand is named after George Remus — a renowned lawyer and bootlegger from the Prohibition era. He was arrested and convicted and allegedly served as inspiration for the title character The Great Gatsby in the novel of the same name by F. Scott Fitzgerald.

"Remember that iconic poster from World War II showing Rosie the Riveter as a patriotic American woman doing her part for the war effort? Well, hundreds of businesses did their part too, and the Bourbon distillers stepped right up with ‘em.

Distilleries all over Kentucky and Tennessee were re-tooled to distill fuel alcohol and ferment penicillin cultures to treat wounded soldiers."
Bourbon rules refer to manufacturing methods rather than location. Bourbon must be matured in new and charred American white oak casks for at least 2 years. If the bottle has no age statement, the Bourbon is at least 4 years old. No coloring or flavoring of any type is allowed, and the mash bill must contain at least 51% corn.
Bourbons are very high in vanilla, as American White Oak is naturally high in vanillins.
Bourbons have very prominent notes of vanilla, as American White Oak is naturally high in vanillins.
At any given time, there are more barrels of Bourbon in Kentucky than there are people. The population of the Bluegrass State is about 4.4 million. Today there are more than 5 million barrels of Bourbon sitting in the rick-houses of that Old Kentucky Home. That’s nearly 300 bottles of Bourbon per person, or about 60 gallons each.
Whisky or Whiskey? The spelling differs geographically. In Scotland, Japan, and some other parts of the world, distilleries usually spell it Whisky; in Ireland and the USA, they spell it Whiskey.
