Remus Repeal Reserve Series IV is harmonious blend of a variety of 12 year old bourbons is what makes up the 2020 addition to the award- winning collection, developed in such a way so as to pay tribute and commemorate the repeal of Prohibition on December 5, 1933. This special edition is comprised of two mash bills from 2008 that include a mix of 77% Bourbon (21% Rye) and 23% Bourbon (36% Rye), that will begin its circulation in September, aligning with National Bourbon Month.
“Now in its fourth year, our Remus Repeal Reserve program has exceeded expectations and allows us to showcase the character of our extensive, aged bourbon reserves and blending expertise,” says Andrew Mansinne, Vice President of Brands, MGP. “Series IV delivers a bold, high-rye character and a beautifully balanced profile that reflects 12 years of age. We’re delighted to offer our next release earlier this fall to respond to consumer demand, and will also support an extensive tasting and education effort throughout our growing distribution network.”
