The Atchison, Kansas based drinks producer and distributer MGP, has announced the launch of their 2021 George Remus Bourbon Single Barrel Programme.

Participating accounts in the Single Barrel programme are invited to connect virtually with the distillery team in Lawrenceburg to taste, select and order their preferred mash bills. Participating retailers can also opt to customize the label on their 2021 Single Barrel Selection.

George Remus Bourbon, which is named after the legendary ‘King of the Bootleggers,’ is a high-rye blend of bourbon whiskies, aged over four years, which are said to deliver notes of vanilla, maple and a sweet yet characteristic rye flavour.

Commenting on the news, Andrew Mansinne, Vice President of Brands at MGP, said: "The Remus Family of Bourbon Whiskies exemplifies MGP's expertise in distilling, aging and blending. Our Single Barrel program offers an exciting complement to our Bourbon portfolio and allows us to showcase our historic high-rye mash bills. We're thrilled to expand this year's programme with a renewed commitment to support our partners with marketing support tailored to reach the most discriminating Bourbon consumers."

George Remus Bourbon Single Barrels, are available for pre-order until March 15th, and will be shipped to each participating retailer in the US by September 2021, to coincide with National Bourbon Month.
