John S. Mosby was a Civil War colonel and leader of a local band of rangers called Mosby's Raiders. Called the "Gray Ghost" for his elusiveness during the war, John S. Mosby was fiercely independent and ever loyal to his beloved Virginia.
Catoctin Creek Organic Mosby's Spirit® recalls the tradition of clear grain spirits common in the 19th century. This spirit hearkens back to the fierce independence that forged our nation despite the conflict that almost destroyed it.
Catoctin Creek Organic Mosby's Spirit is a multiple award winning, delicious rye "white whisky", with a velvety smooth, sweet and undeniably pleasing cereal taste with floral notes and citrus. If we aged this stuff, it'd be our Roundstone Rye whisky. But unaged, it is just as heavenly.
Awarded silver medals at the 2010 New York International Spirits Competition and the Beverage Testing Institute, a "Very Good" recommendation by F. Paul Pacult's Ultimate Spirits Challenge, and bronze medals in the American Distilling Institute 2010 and 2011 Whiskey Competitions, Catoctin Creek Organic Mosby's Spirit is something special. We're really proud of this one!
Mosby's Spirit is incredibly versatile as a mixer, giving a new grainy sweetness to traditional vodka or rum cocktails. It can also be used in many recipes calling for whisky. Mix a little in with some fresh squeezed lemonade for a cool summer treat. Honestly, the possibilities are endless.
