Hot Honey Rye

Hot Honey Rye™

The Original Hot Honey Rye!  Don't be fooled by imitations and products using cheap artificial flavorings!

Catoctin Creek Hot Honey Rye™ is a reprise of a very popular Barrel Select offering we did in 2022, and now we're introducing it as a permanent line extension. 

When you take our beautiful, potstilled 100% rye whisky, and you add three types of local Virginia honey (wildflower, clover, and buckwheat) and an infusion of chile peppers, you get something amazing.  Because we use real honey, the aroma and flavor of honey are dominant in this whisky, and the honey gives a very pleasant viscosity/mouth feel. 

Just as you're savoring the whisky, the peppers come in with a surprising and delightful bit of heat.  Smooth and sweet, with a ZING!  This is a fun one!

Support the Bees!

Catoctin Creek will donate $1 for every bottle sold to local and national organizations that help conserve bees.
