A perfect 46% ABV version of the multi-award-winning Roundstone Rye.
Becky and Scott Harris founded Catoctin Creek Distillery in 2009 in the back-woods of Purcellville, Virginia. Scott worked in software and Becky was a chemical engineer. It was Becky’s passion for the fermentation and distillation process that brought this couple out of corporate American and into your liquor cabinet. From their little distillery by the creek they produce a range of ten Spirits, including Rye Whiskies, Brandy, Gin, and a handful of other drams.
The Roundstone Rye from Catoctin Creek is a great dram and multi-award-winner. But one in every ten casks is set aside for a special release. Catoctin Creek Roundstone Distiller's Edition Rye Whisky is a (perfect) 46% ABV version of the original culled from hand-selected casks. So, like its siblings in the Roundstone lineup, it is made from 100% rye grain mashed, fermented, and distilled on site and aged for two years in new oak.
