The Good Food Awards has named two of Catoctin Creek's products -- Roundstone Rye 80 Proof and Roundstone Rye 92 Proof -- in their 2018 spirits category. The press release for the Good Food Awards writes [bold highlights ours]:
The 15 categories the Good Food Awards celebrate -- from spirits to cheese to coffee -- comprise over $200 billion in America's gross domestic product, a greater portion than the cattle and pork industries combined. The 2018 Finalists represent the vanguard in each of their industries, setting new standards for gastronomic excellence as well as social and environmental practices that have over time proven to be adopted by the rest of the industry. Each Finalist rose to the top in a blind tasting of 2,057 entries, and also passed a rigorous vetting to confirm they meet Good Food Awards standards regarding supply chain transparency, environmentally sound agricultural practices, humane animal husbandry and deep community engagement.
