Release Day! #InThisTogether Infinity Barrel Rye Whisky
Because of COVID-19, many restaurants in the DC Metro Area came under enormous financial hardship. As a result, they could not sustain the private barrel selections that they had chosen. We were able to ease their burden by taking back their barrel selections. That was difficult for us to do, but we decided to spin this hay into gold. We created an "infinity barrel" with the barrel selections combined into a new whiskey blend, and that whisky is unlike anything you will ever see again!
Announcing the Catoctin Creek Barrel Select #InThisTogether Rye Whisky, "An Infinity Barrel Benefit Project."
This rye whisky began life as our standard Virginia 100% rye whisky, and then was aged in a number of different barrels, including an American Chardonnay oak cask, an apple brandy cask, and an American Imperial Stout cask from Stable Craft Brewery in Virginia. The various whiskies were mixed together and re-barreled and now bottled as a new expression! The resulting whisky is complex, spicy and fruity, and absolutely stunning!!
During these difficult times, we are all truly #InThisTogether. Therefore, 100% of all profits from these bottles will go to charities supporting out-of-work and struggling restaurants, bars, and their workers:
- Restaurant Workers Community Foundation - an advocacy and action nonprofit created by and for restaurant workers
- USBG Bartender Emergency Assistance Program
- Ayuda DC - comprehensive social services and language access services to low-income immigrants in D.C., Virginia and Maryland
- Southern Smoke - a crisis relief organization for people in the food and beverage industry
In Virginia, bottles will be available directly at our distillery, or you can order it in our online store for direct shipping to your home! In Maryland, Delaware and the District of Columbia, it will be distributed by Prestige Ledroit who will also be making donations on this project.
80 proof, $45.09 per bottle. Sales begin JUNE 1st.
