Indiana’s Largest Whiskey Producer Unveils Bourbon Inspired By ‘The Great Gatsby’
On Thursday, Ross & Squibb, formerly known as MGP, Indiana’s biggest whiskey producer, announced the launch of a whiskey inspired by F. Scott Fitzgerald’s classic novel, “The Great Gatsby.”
Bottled at 97.8 proof, Remus Gatsby Reserve comes from Ross & Squibb-owned George Remus Bourbon. The 15-year-old straight bourbon was produced at the 175-year-old Ross & Squibb distillery in Lawrenceburg, Indiana.
“The Remus Bourbon brand has provided our team an opportunity to showcase the great bourbon whiskey produced at Ross & Squibb,” Ross & Squibb master distiller Ian Stirsman said, according to The Bourbon Flight. “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.”
Launching in October in limited quantities, Remus Gatsby Reserve retails for a suggested price of $199.99 per 750-milliliter bottle.
“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,” said 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.”
