Luxco Renames Historic Indiana Distillery

By November 26, 2021Top News

Luxco renamed the 174-year-old, Lawrenceburg, Indiana distiller of its branded spirits Ross & Squibb Distillery as it joins the Luxco family of brands. Effective in September, the distiller of George Remus Straight Bourbon Whiskey and Rossville Union Straight Rye Whiskey will go by its new name. Luxco merged with MGP in 2020, and its house-made spirits formerly under the MGP name are crafted under the new distillery name. Aligned to the brands it produces, Ross & Squibb Distillery pays tribute to Indiana’s distilling history and the pioneers who transformed Lawrenceburg, Indiana into “Whiskey City USA” and helped make Indiana the rye capital of the world. The Ross & Squibb name is a celebration of two such stories: “Ross” is inspired by the legacy of George Ross, who in 1847 founded the Rossville Distillery, located on what is now the Ross & Squibb Distillery campus. “Squibb” calls back to the historic Squibb Distillery, founded in 1869 in Lawrenceburg, Indiana, and later purchased in 1921 by George Remus, “King of the Bootleggers” and inspiration for the George Remus Straight Bourbon Whiskey brand.
