National Bourbon Heritage Month and The Bit by a Fox Podcast will
have a new bourbon focused episode every Friday. This week we are
kicking off the festivities with an interview with MGP's David
Whitmer, the master blender behind the distillery's
award-winning brands, including the coveted Remus Repeal Reserve.
With the September 1st launch of the Series IV expression, we
discuss the consumer excitement behind this fourth release, why the
launch was chosen to be before the traditional Repeal Day this
year, and the legendary story of lawyer, bootlegger, bon vivant,
George Remus - the inspiration behind the brand.

Add absinthe to a rocks glass, swirl it around to coat the
glass and dump out remaining liquid, then set aside. Add the rest
of the ingredients with ice. Stir until chilled. Strain into a
rocks glass with large ice cube. Twist lemon oils into drink.
