1757 Bottled in Bond Virginia "XO" Brandy


A special release of our "XO" (extra old!) grape brandy!

Coming Monday, August 3rd, at 8:00 AM, we will release our newest expression of 1757 Virginia Brandy. This one is seven years old and bottled in bond!

We will release this ONLINE ONLY for shipping directly to you, or pickup at the distillery.  We purposely put the release day on a Monday, when we are closed to the public, so that people will NOT form long lines outside the distillery.  Why line up with all that trouble? Skip the line and pick-up at your leisure!  Sales are online only in our online shop.  Please note that the product will show "Out of Stock" or "Unavailable" until August 3rd at 8am.  We will not be accepting pre-orders, sorry.

These are EXTREMELY LIMITED.  Only 272 bottles were produced from this single barrel.  There will be a two bottle per person limit on this product.  Restaurant partners should contact their sales representative now to ensure they get a bottle for their establishment.

About the release:

1757 7yo XO Brandy Bottle in Bond

Distilled in 100-gallon batches, the 1757 Virginia XO Brandy has been aging since 2013 in a single 53-gallon Bordeaux red-wine casks, making it Catoctin Creek’s 2nd oldest release to date. This particular brandy is something special - a one time only experiment that we did years ago.  Instead of our normal 50/50 blend of Seyval blanc and Chambourcin grapes, sourced from Tarara Vineyards in Leesburg, Virginia, this one is equal parts Seyval blanc, Chambourcin, and Norton grapes from Chrysalis Winery in Middleburg, only 10 minutes from the distillery. The Norton grape is a native of Virginia, and adds a delicate floral note to the otherwise rich brandy character of our normal brandy.  It is sublime!!

Named after the year Virginia’s Loudoun County was founded, the seven-year-old XO brandy is soothing and warm, featuring rich hints of grape, raisin, date, fig, bread pudding, cherry and stone fruit, overlaid with alpine meadows of columbine, edelweiss, and chamomile. 1757 Virginia Brandy Bottled in Bond (100 proof/50% ABV) is a very limited release that will be available for $89.99 / 750mL at the distillery and through a limited number of select fine retailers across the Catoctin Creek distribution footprint.
