PRESS RELEASE FROM CATOCTIN CREEK DISTILLERY
Catoctin Creek Distilling Co., The Virginia Rye Whisky ℠, released its annual Rabble Rouser Bottled in Bond Rye Whisky on Monday, Feb. 8. One of Catoctin Creek’s most sought-after whiskies, owners Scott and Becky Harris are excited to offer over 100 cases nationwide, which is double what was available last year.
“Due to better planning and growing reserves, Becky and I are really excited to offer more Rabble Rouser this year,” said co-founder and general manager, Scott Harris. “Because it’s been so limited in the past, this may be the first time a lot of folks will be able to purchase it, and we’re looking forward to hearing what they think!”
Bottled at 100 proof and aged for four years, Rabble Rouser is distilled from 100% rye at a lower proof, which captures a lot of extra flavors typically lost to the pot stills. Its extensive tasting notes provide a rustic profile that pays homage to the history that rye whisky played in the state of Virginia, including nectarines, clover, honey, deep earthy spice, forest, sandalwood, uncured bacon, white peaches, peanuts, and a hint of mesquite.
Catoctin Creek’s Rabble Rouser (100 proof/50% ABV) $99/750mL will be available through a limited number of select fine retailers throughout the distillery’s national distribution footprint. It’s also be on sale (if still available) in Catoctin Creek’s online store for curbside pickup or direct shipping in Virginia only.
