Hand-picked by retailers across the county, unique barrel selections bring new choices to rye enthusiasts from MGP’s historic Lawrenceburg, Indiana distillery
ST. LOUIS (Aug. 23, 2021) —Luxco announced Rossville Union Single Barrel selections are bottled and on the way to participating retailers. Customized bottles of the straight rye whiskey, bearing the names of participating retail accounts, will arrive in August, just in time for National Rye Month.
Earlier this year, retailers were able to taste, select and order their own barrel of Rossville Union Straight Rye Whiskey, choosing from three unique mash bills, each offered at cask strength. This process was conducted virtually, with participating retail accounts corresponding online and by phone with the distillery team at MGP’s historic distillery in Lawrenceburg, Indiana.
“In Lawrenceburg we have a long history of crafting fantastic rye whiskey,” said MGP Master Blender David Whitmer. “Our single barrel program is particularly rewarding, as it gives our retailers the opportunity to select a rye whiskey that is exactly what their customers will enjoy. Rye enthusiasts will enjoy this year’s picks, as we’ll have something for every palate.”
Known as the “Masters of Rye,” MGP is a leading distiller of the country’s rye whiskies, including Rossville Union Master Crafted Straight Rye Whiskey and Rossville Union Barrel Proof Straight Rye Whiskey.
