US-based premium distilled spirits supplier MGP has expanded its portfolio with the launch of first Single Barrel release for Rossville Union Rye.

The 100-proof Rossville Union Single Barrel Straight Rye Whiskey comes in two mash bills.

MGP Brands vice president Andrew Mansinne said: “We’re proud to make some of the finest rye whiskey in the country at our Lawrenceburg distillery.

“Demand for our 2020 Rossville Union Single Barrel Selection has exceeded expectations in our inaugural year.

“We are thrilled to work with our valued retail and distributor partners to offer this limited-edition single barrel selection of Rossville Union.”

MGP noted that the company ships Rossville Union Single Barrel in a personalised packaging to each participating retailer, together with the original barrel.

Earlier this year, participating retailers in the Single Barrel programme met with the distillery team in Lawrenceburg to taste, select and order their preferred mash bills.

Additionally, the retailers wanted to label their bottles as a 2020 Single Barrel Selection to showcase the collectable aspect of this new offering.

MGP added that the speciality release is available for a suggested retail price of $49.99 per 750ml bottle.

Established in 1941, MGP is a supplier of premium distilled spirits and its portfolio includes Rossville Union Master Crafted Straight Rye Whiskey and Rossville Union Barrel Proof Straight Rye Whiskey.

Last August, MGP announced that it will release Remus Repeal Reserve Series III Straight Bourbon Whiskey in November that year.

The company noted that its new limited-edition expression will commemorate Prohibition Repeal Day.
