Luxco’s Remus Repeal Reserve Series V Straight Bourbon Whiskey is now available at retailers. Series V is the fifth edition of the award-winning Remus Repeal Reserve Bourbon collection. It showcases a medley of five bourbons ranging from 2005 to 2008, thus using the oldest MGP Bourbons out of all series to date. A limited annual release, this bourbon is produced to commemorate the repeal of Prohibition in 1933.
Remus Repeal Reserve is an annual series from flagship brand George Remus ® Bourbon which is produced at MGP’s 174-year-old distillery in Lawrenceburg, Indiana. In January 2021, MGP acquired privately owned Luxco for $475 million in cash and stock.

Made in the distillery’s signature high-rye style, the medley changes each year, allowing the team to experiment with their various mash bills. Remus Repeal Reserve Series V is comprised of 9% 2005 Bourbon (21% Rye), 5% 2006 Bourbon (36% Rye), 19% 2006 Bourbon (21% Rye), 13% 2008 Bourbon (21% Rye) and 54% 2008 Bourbon (36% Rye).

“The Remus Repeal collection is all about showcasing the incredible range of aged reserves and medley combinations we can work with in Lawrenceburg,” said Master Blender David Whitmer. “In Series V we have created another exceptional bourbon that is sure to be a fan favorite. The limited number of bottles won’t stay on store shelves for long.”
