Catoctin Creek Roundstone Rye

CATOCTIN CREEK ROUNDSTONE RYE

Description and Flavor Profile: Roundstone Rye® is a very unique rye whisky, made completely from scratch at our distillery in Purcellville, Virginia. This pre-Prohibition style rye whisky is made from 100% rye grain, sourced locally when available. It is mashed, fermented, distilled and aged completely in our distillery, before bottling it at a very sippable 80 proof. Aged it in new Minnesota white oak casks for a period of just under two years, the whisky is smooth, woody, with that true grain character achieved in a relatively young whisky. Roundstone Rye has a delicious woody taste, with notes of caramel, rich butter toffee, and just a hint of lemon in the nose.

Organic Roundstone Rye is one of the few organic whiskeys in the entire world. Roundstone Rye is a superb sipping whisky, a great whisky in Manhattans, or your favorite rye whisky cocktails.

Delicious mixed, on the rocks, or neat. Try some this evening!

Catoctin Creek Roundstone Rye 92 Proof

CATOCTIN CREEK ROUNDSTONE RYE 92 PROOF

Description and Flavor Profile: This whisky is the culmination of several years of planning. “For a few years now, we’ve been putting whisky away for storage,” remarked Becky Harris, Chief Distiller and President of Catoctin Creek Distilling Company. “We pulled some of the more interesting barrels from the back of the barn and decided to release these at a higher proof: a whisky specially curated for flavor, while still being remarkably smooth, as is our existing 80 proof Roundstone.”

Think of it as our “Distiller’s Reserve” version of Roundstone Rye. Only one in every ten barrels gets selected to be in the Roundstone Rye “92 Proof” whisky.

“We are very excited about this new product,” said Scott Harris, Founder and General Manager of Catoctin Creek. “We discussed this new product with customers like Jack Rose Whisky Saloon, The Passenger, and our distributors, and all agreed that this would be a great new product for the distillery. And what’s cool, since we’re a small distillery, we can be responsive to this kind of market input.”

– Beverage Testing Institute, February 18, 2015

“Amber with an aroma of mint, spices and oak — inviting. A bright, sharp spiciness in the taste from the rye, clean, well-rounded and smooth. Gingerbread and fresh grasses. A solid rye.”
– Modern Distillery Age, September 11, 2015

“A bottle of organic Roundstone Rye 92-proof is what you’re looking for if you want your socks knocked off. Just the amount of spice you’d expect from a great rye, but it won’t have you breathing fire.”
– Men’s Journal, September 3, 2014

“The release of a premium, 92-proof version of their award-winning 80-proof Roundstone Rye Whisky, hitting shelves in May, is recognizably Roundstone but intensified, with the caramel, maple, and spice tones highlighted and pumped up into something richer.”
– Washington Post, April 30, 2014.

Catoctin Creek Watershed Gin

CATOCTIN CREEK WATERSHED GIN

Description and Flavor Profile: Paying respect to the Chesapeake Bay watershed, in which our beloved Catoctin Creek does flow, this gin is a bit of a watershed itself.

Distilled from organic rye grain, with a secret recipe of organic herbs and spices, Catoctin Creek Organic Watershed Gin® is unlike any gin you’ve tried. Amazingly complex, with a rye base that shines through subtle citrus and cinnamon notes, essences of fresh cut hay, and of course a crisp juniper character. Together, they make Watershed Gin a fine cocktail mixer.

Try it with the traditional tonic and a slice of lime (or a Meyer Lemon, for a real treat!). Or mix it into your favorite summertime refreshers.

Catoctin Creek Organic Watershed Gin–organic so you know it’s good… as if your taste buds needed convincing!

“While gins can be all over the map these days, Watershed comes across with clear focus. Beautiful juniper nose and taste, with practically no alcohol harshness… Incredibly balanced… I just wanted to sit back and enjoy it… London Dry with a Virginia accent. ”
– Forbes, January 31, 2015

“A spicy, woody and soft aroma. Licorice and anise are full-on in the first taste and big in the finish. Soft juniper. A good mouthfeel and full body.”
