About Remus Repeal Reserve Series V Straight Bourbon Whiskey (375mL)
On December 5, 1933, the law that prohibited the manufacture and sale of alcohol in the US got repealed. In remembrance of that joyful moment, Remus Repeal Reserve crafted Series V, an extremely complex symphony, woven out of five different bourbons — 9% 2005 bourbon (21% rye), 5% 2006 bourbon (36% rye), 19% of another 2006 bourbon (21% rye), 13% 2008 bourbon (21% rye), and 54% of another 2008 bourbon (36% rye). Bottled at 100 proof, this limited edition whiskey offers a magnificent flavor profile, balancing the sweetness and oakiness that get expressed as a pleasant interplay of rich toffee, vanilla, chocolate, and nutty aromas.

About Remus Repeal Reserve
George Remus, dubbed the “King of the Bootleggers,” was a famous bootlegger during Prohibition, exploiting loopholes in the Volstead Act to distill bourbon. Born in 1878 in Germany, he settled in Chicago with his family in the 1880s. In his teens he worked in his uncle’s pharmacy, later becoming the owner. It was there that he acquired experience that would prove invaluable during Prohibition, and the pharmacy would serve as the foundation for his empire.
He switched careers, going into law and eventually becoming a trial defense attorney — gathering even more useful skills. Once Prohibition was starting to wind up, he would defend many bootleggers, taking note of the riches they managed to amass. Once the Volstead Act was enacted, he found a way to circumvent it and provide a steady stream of spirits for his budding bootlegging operation. The empire expanded and Remus eventually had 3,000 workers as well as politicians on his payroll, briefly living a lavish lifestyle that reportedly inspired The Great Gatsby.
There are not many things more American than bourbon, and although most of it is produced in Kentucky, it can be produced all over the USA.
It must be made with at least 51% corn and bottled at 40% ABV or higher. So why not give this American classic a try?
