Whisky Advocate On MGP’s First Bottled-In-Bond BourbonJuly 2, 2019
Indiana’s MGP Distillery will launch its first bottled-in-bond Bourbon this November under the George Remus label. The whiskey’s end-of-year debut coincides with the 100th anniversary of the enactment of the Volstead Act, which carried out the 18th Amendment outlawing alcohol production and distribution in the United States.
Remus Volstead Reserve Straight Bourbon was distilled in the fall season (July-December) of 2005 and matured in MGP’s brick warehouses in Lawrenceburg, Indiana. Like all bottled-in-bond whiskies, it is at 50% abv. However, at 14 years of age, it far exceeds the minimum 4 years required for bottled-in-bond whiskey.
