Media Coverage

Scott Harris on the Kojo Nnamdi Show

In the continuing coverage of the Virginia ABC spirits tax raise, Scott was invited as a guest on the Kojo Nnamdi show on WAMU 88.5. From the show description:

If you live in Virginia, the state’s budget woes will hit you in the liquor cabinet next week. That’s when the price of wine and spirits goes up to help close a projected $2.4 billion revenue shortfall. The price hike is one more reminder that in jurisdictions like the Commonwealth and Maryland’s Montgomery County, where government agencies operate all the liquor stores, consumers often pay higher taxes and levies for their alcohol. We explore the economic forces—seen and unseen—that impact the selection and price of liquor around our region.

The other guest for the show was Garrett Peck, author of "The Prohibition Hangover: A Social History of Alcohol After Prohibition" and "Capital Beer: A Heady History of Brewing in Washington, D.C.".

It was a great show! You can see the original show site, here, or listen to the podcast, here.

Distillery Dinners Reviewed in MicroShiner

Distillery DinnerRichard Barry recently attended one of our distillery dinners for the Autumn 2014 issue of MicroShiner magazine.  The article gives a great window into the sumptuousness of the evening of history, whisky, cocktails, and fine seasonal dining.  The story is further brought to life by the gorgeous photos of DJ Glisson.  The issue even includes cocktail recipes from the evening's drinks.

Each month, Catoctin collaborates with catering mavens Chef Wes Rosati and Chef Maria Aros of the Wandering Chef to create a menu of seasonal dishes that draw on the flavors of local ingredients and Catoctin spirits.  The marriages produced are happy ones like the perfect pairing of Pan Roasted Tenderloin and BBQ Rubbed Brisket with a smooth Boulevardier made with Catoctin Creek Roundstone Rye "92 Proof".

Major Coverage in the Washington Post

Becky gives a tour of Catoctin Creek distilleryWe were overjoyed (over the moon, in fact) at Lavanya Ramanathan's very in depth story on visiting Catoctin Creek.  She really went into depth in her story, covering not only how the spirits are made, but the whole vibe of coming out to Purcellville for a day trip, including even a stop at Market Burger for lunch.  Such a wonderful story!  Here is an excerpt:

Here we see how rye is made: not in giant, impersonal vats somewhere in Indiana, but a few dozen miles from home. Scott explains that the first step to rye, in fact, is making something not unlike a hefeweizen — a primordial stew teeming with grains that must ferment to become alcohol. The distillation happens later, in a fancy copper still, which separates the alcohol from the grainy pulp, known as mash, with heat that turns it to gas. Upon cooling, the gas is returned to its liquid form, which is now that brash stuff known as white whiskey. To become the Roundstone rye that has won the company kudos, it goes into oak barrels to age for at least two years.

Men's Journal Reviews Catoctin Creek

Thanks go out to Jason Diamond, from Men's Journal, for calling out five American craft whiskeys doing it right!  We were thrilled to be named among other fine whiskey makers like FEW and Dry Fly, producing great new American whiskey:

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. If you're looking for something a little more subtle, a bottle of sweet and spicy regular Roundstone Rye should always be within reach. You can't ever go wrong with Catoctin Creek. 

Wow!!  To read the entire story, click here.

Jim Murray's Whisky Bible 2014 reviews Roundstone Rye

Jim Murray's Whisky Bible 2014 (10th Anniversary Edition), reviews Roundstone Rye Cask Proof (batch B12E1), and scores it an 88.5!  The review, as these tend to be, is 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!
