Catoctin Creek is thrilled to host a monthly cocktail dinner at distillery on Main Street in Old Town Purcellville.
Enjoy a private tour of the distillery from owners, Scott and Becky Harris. Becky will guide you through the process of making whisky, and Scott will describe for you the wonderful history of our "new" building, which is nearly 100 years old.
Dinner will be a four-course affair, using seasonal produce and local suppliers, prepared by Chefs Wes Rosati and Maria Aros of The Wandering Chef. Chefs Rosati and Aros are formerly of Lansdowne Resort, and have combined talents to provide exquisite dining for our new venue!
Oh, and did I say cocktails? Yes, Scott & Becky Harris will personally craft cocktails expertly paired with your dinner! This will be a magical evening, and one not to miss!!
Great Reviews in June for Roundstone Rye and Mosby's Spirit
In June, we received two FANTASTIC reviews from Whisky Bible and Whisky Advocate, two of the world's leading authorities on all things whisky.
Jim Murray's Whisky Bible 2014 (10th Anniversary Edition), reviewed Roundstone Rye Cask Proof (batch B12E1), and scored it an 88.5! The review, as these tend to be, was all over the place, like a big happy golden retriever puppy: The rye is chaotic, unexpected, youthful, crazy, and yet, still totally loveable:
"A truly huge rye... Through a combination of sheer delicious belligerence and chutzpah has your taste buds swooning. Great fun!"
Lew Bryson, in the summer 2014 issue of Whisky Advocate, (re-)reviews Mosby's Spirit, our beautiful unaged rye spirit, and gives it a score of 82:
"The second craft rye I'm revisiting. Mosby's is still 100% organic rye and unaged, but the nose is more fun: some green pear and melon esters in there with the grassy rye spice. It's nicely smooth on the tongue, delivers exactly what the nose promised, plus a shot of fresh-cracked black pepper...and a much longer finish these days. Greatly improved; a good white whisky."
