Welcome to June!
We've had a very busy May at Catoctin Creek. We shipped more in May than we've ever shipped before, especially since our new Roundstone Rye 92 Proof has been released. The response to the new spirit has been fantastic, and we're really excited to be bringing this one to you on a regular basis!
The new Roundstone Rye 92 Proof is very much a sibling to its 80 proof version, but the newest expression comes from barrels carefully chosen from our rickhouse. The tasting notes combine the typical caramel, flan and leather notes with a distinct flavor of citrus (grapefruit, perhaps?). Whether you enjoy it neat, on the rocks, or in a cocktail, we're sure the Roundstone Rye 92 Proof is sure to be a favorite!
Guest Bartender Series - Trevor Frye from Jack Rose
In June, we welcome Trevor Frye from Jack Rose to our tasting room. We are now in our sixth month of this series, and the response it as hot as ever!
Each month, we invite one guest bartender from around the area to join us for a day to highlight three special cocktails using Catoctin Creek spirits. Tastings that day will include these wonderful creations for the regular price of $10 per flight, and Trevor will be available most of the day for people to meet him, ask questions, and generally have a great time!
More coolness of the city coming out to visit us in Loudoun County!
On Saturday, June 21st, during our normal business hours, Trevor will be with us in the Catoctin Creek tasting room. He will only be here one time, so don't miss this!!
