PURCELLVILLE, Va. (Oct. 5, 2020) - - - Catoctin Creek Distilling Co. announces its new partnership with N10 Bourbon Ltd, a national American whiskey distribution company based in the U.K. The full lineup of the craft distillery’s most popular expressions, Roundstone Rye 80 Proof, Roundstone Rye 92 Proof Distiller's Edition, and Roundstone Rye Cask Proof, are now available throughout England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland. All products are single barrel pot-stilled whiskies made from 100% rye. Special barrel selections and limited releases will also be available in the future.
“I am extremely happy to be partnered with N10 Bourbons Ltd in the U.K.," said Catoctin Creek general manager and co-founder, Scott Harris. “The U.K. is one of the most important markets in Europe for American whiskey, and we are thrilled to be partnering with a distributor who specializes solely in American whiskey. That will give our brand the focused attention it deserves.”
Catoctin Creek will initially be available at Master of Malt, The Whisky Exchange, and other fine retailers throughout the United Kingdom. “I am delighted to welcome Catoctin Creek – ‘The Virginia Rye Whisky’ – to our portfolio of American Whiskies," said N10 Bourbons, Ltd. co-founder, Nathan Dawes. "Working with distillers such as Becky and Scott to bring to our market high quality products like Roundstone Rye, which is locally sourced, then mashed, fermented, distilled and aged completely in house at their Virginia distillery, is what we are in business for. I am confident that Catoctin Creek's range of 100% rye grain whiskies will prove to be massive hits with U.K. consumers.”
The arrangement between Catoctin Creek and N10 Bourbons is a new relationship for both companies. Barring any unforeseen problems with COVID-19, Harris hopes to make a trip to the U.K. in 2021, which will include visits to various retailers, bars and restaurants to introduce the brand to the market.
Harris adds, “Further, I would like to thank the work of the Virginia Department of Economic Development, who has tirelessly promoted Virginia spirits in the London market, and were instrumental in bringing us together with N10 Bourbons Ltd.”
