A true 100% Rye at cask strength and deserving of every award it’s received.
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 good folks at Catoctin Creek Distillery call their Cask Proof Organic Roundstone Rye, “The best we make!” Well, considering the overall quality of their product, that’s saying something. But you don’t have to take their word for it — they’ve got a bunch of major gold medals to prove the point. This is a cask-strength version of their popular Roundstone Organic Rye Whiskey made from 100% rye grain and aged about two years in new Minnesota white oak barrels. Each barrel is a bit different, but the stated strength is 58.9% ABV. And its got reviewers and critics all over the world licking their chops for the next sample dram, released just twice a year.
