The release of Remus Volstead Reserve Straight Bourbon Whiskey, coincides with the 100th anniversary of the start of National Prohibition in the US – under the Volstead Act – that enforced the 18th Amendment outlawing the production and distribution of alcoholic spirits in the US.
First ratified on January 16, 1919 and enacted one year later, the 18th Amendment ended in 1933, earning historic status as the only constitutional amendment to be entirely repealed.
This latest bottling from the brand which is named after the legendary "King of the Bootleggers" George Remus, is said to deliver notes of dried candied fruit, caramelized pecans, oak and tobacco on the nose. Followed by notes of robust rich oak, cherry, caramel and oak on the palate.
Commenting on the launch, Andrew Mansinne, Vice President of Brands at MGP, said: "Prohibition launched an era of social change which created legends such as George Remus, King of the Bootleggers, and a speakeasy culture that persists to this day. Remus Volstead Reserve is made from our finest 14-year aged reserves and has spent the same time in barrel as this country spent under Prohibition. Like this singular historic era, our Volstead Reserve is one-of-a-kind."
Remus Volstead Reserve Straight Bourbon Whiskey, will be available in the US from November, for a RRP of $199.99 – 750ml.
