Metze’s Select

Historic Lawrenceburg, IN distillery, MGP, is branching out. Master Distiller, Greg Metze has spent his nearly 40-year career at MGP. And now he’s combined his passion with his natural sense of what makes a great whiskey. Introducing Metze’s Select.Metze's Select

Metze’s Select combines some of MGP’s favorite whiskeys to produce a well-balanced bourbon. Metze’s features a Lawrenceburg-style high rye characteristic that combines spicy notes with creamy vanilla and caramel. The 2015 medley is comprised of:

38% 2006 Bourbon (21% Rye)
3% 2006 Bourbon (36% Rye)
59% 2008 Bourbon (21% Rye)

Sweet from the start, the nose has notes of butterscotch, chocolate, and menthol. The palate takes that sweetness and has a creme brulee character, with hints of cinnamon, nutmeg, brown butter, and some cherry on the finish. At 93 proof Metze’s is manageable without water — and the alcohol really just serves to boost the spicy component.

MGP (Midwest Grain Products) of Indiana is a distillery in Lawrenceburg, Indiana. The distillery was founded in 1847 and currently produces a range of distilled beverages from straight rye whiskey, bourbon whiskey, and neutral spirits like gin and vodka.
