Ross & Squibb Adds Another Premium Remus Bourbon Offering

Indiana-based Ross & Squibb, also known as MGP to some and managed by the company’s Luxco spirits division, has under its umbrella the Remus Bourbon family. Already stacked with the Remus Repeal Reserve more premium expressions, a newer, more “ultra-limited” release known as Remus Gatsby Reserve was recently unveiled.

Remus Gatsby Reserve, according to those behind it, is made from the well-known Lawrenceburg, Indiana, distillery’s “reserve” stocks of 15 year old straight bourbon whiskey. Bottled at a cask strength of 97.8 proof, it has been been made available this month in very small amounts.

“The Remus Bourbon brand has provided our team an opportunity to showcase the great bourbon whiskey produced at Ross & Squibb,” said Ross & Squibb master distiller Ian Stirsman in a prepared statement. “Like the Remus Repeal Reserve series, Remus Gatsby Reserve gave us a chance to showcase some of the best bourbons we have – in this case, some of the finest 15-year-old bourbons in our reserves.

“Remus Gatsby Reserve is certain to be a highly sought-after member of the Remus Bourbon family, particularly given its limited production.”

“The Remus Bourbon brand is inspired by the finest bourbon of the Prohibition era, and ‘The Great Gatsby’ offers arguably the most well-known depiction of those times,” added Shanae Randolph, brand manager for Remus Bourbon. “With its Art-Deco-inspired design, Remus Gatsby Reserve will serve as yet another authentic way for the Remus brand to transport bourbon fans back to the excitement of the Roaring 20s.”

Pricing around $200 per 750 ml bottle, Remus Gatsby Reserve is said to have been released to “celebrate F. Scott Fitzgerald’s legendary novel, ‘The Great Gatsby’, a century ago – from its events in 1922 to its publication in 1925.”

Official tasting notes make mention this whiskey “leads with rich aromas of dried candied fruit, caramelized pecans, charred oak and tobacco, and the taste profile is characterized by flavors of candied fruit, syrup, leather, and cherry, while the finish lingers with notes of cinnamon, char, and oak.”
