– Paste Magazine, September 19, 2015

"A bottle of sweet and spicy regular Roundstone Rye should always be within reach."
– Men's Journal, September 3, 2014

"An aroma of sweetness, vanilla, spice and leather. Spicy up front in the taste followed by round sweetness in the middle and a spicy finish.  Nice warmth in the taste and finish."
Modern Distillery Age, November 25, 2011

––––––––

Our lovely 100% rye spirit is aged it in new Minnesota white oak casks for a period of just under two years, yielding a very special rye whisky!  The hardest of all whiskeys to produce, rye whisky is an old time favorite that is new once again.  It has a delicious woody taste, with notes of caramel, rich butter toffee, and just a hint of lemon in the nose.

Awarded silver medals at the 2011 American Distilling Institute Whiskey Competition, the 2010 New York International Spirits Competition and the Beverage Testing Institute, Catoctin Creek Organic Roundstone Rye® is one of the few organic whiskeys in the entire world.  Roundstone Rye is a superb sipping whisky, a great mixer in Manhattans, or any recipe calling for Canadian or rye whisky. 

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