Every empire has a beginning. And in the case of George Remus and his legendary bootlegging operation, that beginning took place in Chicago. It was here where Remus would grow up, attend the Chicago College of Pharmacy, become an acclaimed lawyer and, ultimately, devise his plan to exploit loopholes in the Volstead Act.
Although federal liquor agents would give Remus no choice but to leave Chicago, his legacy lives on with George Remus® Bourbon. With a hint of vanilla, a maple aroma and a sweet, yet characteristic, rye flavor, it’s a bourbon for Chicagoans, inspired by a Chicagoan.
