Ross & Squibb Releases Remus Highest Rye Bourbon

Lawrenceburg, Indiana-based Ross & Squibb Distillery has 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, Remus Highest Rye Bourbon puts 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,” says Ross & Squibb Distillery 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, formerly MGP, is named after two historic Lawrenceburg, Indiana, distilleries — Rossville Distillery and W.P. Squibb & Co.

“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,” says 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.”

This follows recent news of MGP buying Penelope Bourbon.
