Catoctin Creek Distilling Co. has announced the release of the annual Rabble Rouser Bottled-in-Bond Rye Whisky on Monday, February 8.
This year, owners Scott and Becky Harris have created an offering of more than 100 cases nationwide, which is double the availability of last year.
“Due to better planning and growing reserves, Becky and I are really excited to offer more Rabble Rouser this year,” said co-founder and general manager, Scott Harris. “Because it’s been so limited in the past, this may be the first time a lot of folks will be able to purchase it, and we’re looking forward to hearing what they think!”
This year’s Rabble Rouser has been bottled at 100 proof and aged for four years. The expression was distilled from 100 per cent rye at a lower proof, enabling it to capture the extra flavors often lost to the pot stills.
Rabble Rouser Rye brings forth a profile that pays homage to the history of rye whisky in the state of Virginia, including nectarines, clover, honey, deep earthy spice, sandalwood, uncured bacon, white peaches and peanuts.
Catoctin Creek’s Rabble Rouser (100 proof/50% ABV) $99/750mL will be available through a limited number of select retailers throughout the distillery’s national distribution footprint beginning Monday, February 8. It will also be on sale in Catoctin Creek’s online store for curbside pickup or direct shipping in Virginia only.
VIP members may call the distillery to obtain a bottle any time before the release date. For more information, call (540) 751-3294 or visit CatoctinCreekDistilling.com.
