Catoctin Creek receives three gold medals and two category winners in the Whiskey and Barrel Consumer Choice Awards 2020

Catoctin Creek continues to rack up the gold medals, with a clean sweep of the Whiskey and Barrel Consumer Choice Awards 2020.  All three of our Roundstone Rye products, the 80 proof, 92 proof "Distiller's Edition," and cask proof, received gold medals in the judging, while the 80 proof received the coveted Consumer Choice Award in the "Under $51" category, while the cask proof received the Consumer Choice Award in the "$51-100" category.  About the competition:

Over 30 vetted consumers and over a dozen whiskey industry and media professionals gathered on October 10th at Bub City Rosemont IL, a premier bourbon and whiskey bar and restaurant, to participate as judges at this awards event. Judges are listed on the website - www.wabcca.com

An awards competition years in the making and long overdue – Consumers want to know the preference of their peers. Founders Dave Sweet and Mario Campa have more than 35 years of combined international spirits experience, hosting and consulting in tasting events and awards across North America, Europe and Australia. Currently owning and operating the Whiskey and Barrel Nite tasting events across the US and avid whisky enthusiasts themselves, they are truly in tune with what consumers are looking for.
