George Remus Bourbon Whiskey



George Remus Bourbon Whiskey...$36.99
47% ABV
KING OF THE BOOTLEGGERS
From Apothecary to Kingpin, George Remus created one of the most intricate, successful bootlegging operations of Prohibition. GEORGE REMUS® Bourbon captures the rebellious spirit of that era with a hint of vanilla, a maple aroma and a sweet-yet-characteristic rye flavor.



SO ME RULES ARE
MADE TO BE BROKEN.
PROHIBITION FOR EXAMPLE.

Saying George Remus was just a bootlegger is like saying Hemingway was just a writer. In the 1920s, if baseball had Ruth, bourbon had Remus.

But this King George didn't reside in England, he was a son of Cincinnati. Starting as an apothecary, he soon found a loophole or two to craft bourbon for "medicinal purposes."

Knowing a great opportunity when he saw it, and a great bourbon when he created it, he began his Prohibition empire. While he respected the Volstead Act, to King George, it was but a mere suggestion.

Holding uncompromising standards, King George demanded two things from his circle of trusted workers: a mash bill to his exact specifications, and of course, the ability to keep a secret.

But when you craft a bourbon this good, a secret can be a hard thing to keep.
