Becky Harris in Food & Wine Magazine

Becky HarrisFood and Wine recently wrote about "6 Women in Whiskey to Watch," including a profile of our own president and chief distiller, Becky Harris.  Becky's fresh approach to whisky is the underlying reason why we introduced Roundstone Rye nine years ago, to bring a new type of whisky to a lot of people who didn't consider themselves whisky drinkers.  Quoting Becky in the article, Ceil Miller Bouchet writes:

Harris encourages new whiskey drinkers – especially women, she says – to trust their taste and not the experts. “Your body chemistry and your individual experience is just as valid as everyone else’s,” she says. “When you like something, that is the one for you. Who cares what the others think?”

This thought follows from our way of thinking at Catoctin Creek:  If everybody is making and consuming the same thing... well, where's the fun in that?

You can read the full article, including profiles of the other women in the story, here.
