A flagship Straight Bourbon proves that Ross & Squibb saved some good stuff for themselves.

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 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 Ross & Squibb, Remus is perfectly blended from premium stock to become your go-to Bourbon.

First thing first… Remus is a line of really good Bourbon. It’s also the first flagship Bourbon produced, owned by Luxco. Remus Straight Bourbon is the entry-level for the range. The mash bill is not stated, but we know that Ross & Squibb has five Bourbon mash bills in production.

And while they could have blended them, we think the flavor profile suggests their 60% corn, 36% rye, and 4% malted barley mix. And it’s aged more than five years and bottled without chill-filtration at a lovely 47% ABV.

*Remus Bourbon has recently changed its labels, and as the original labels are being phased out, there is still a chance that you might receive a bottle different than what is pictured. But rest assured, the liquid remains the same, regardless of the label.

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.

Bourbons are very high in vanilla, as American White Oak is naturally high in vanillins.

Speaking of breeding winner horses, two of Pinhook’s co-founders have horseracing in their DNA. Jamie Hill and Mike McMahon continue the tradition of their families as third-generation horsemen, owning a bloodstock agency and a thoroughbred racing company. Applying that knowledge to Whiskey just made sense.

Bourbon was declared "The Official Spirit of America" by an Act of Congress signed by President Lyndon Johnson in 1964.
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.
Sure, Kentucky gets all the press when it comes to Bourbon. And with good reason—nearly 95% of it is produced there. But Bourbon can be made anywhere as long as it's within the United States. Just ask states with budding distilleries like Illinois and New York.
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.
