Virginia craft distillery finishes award-winning rye whisky in its Short Hill Mountain Peach Brandy barrels
PURCELLVILLE, Va. (Nov. 4, 2020) – – – Catoctin Creek Distilling Company is excited to bring a taste of summer to fall with the launch of its Peach Barrel Select Rye Whisky on Monday, Nov. 16. A limited availability of approximately 540 bottles, this 100% Virginia rye whisky was aged in Catoctin Creek’s charred new oak barrels and then finished for over one year in peach brandy barrels from its Short Hill Mountain Peach Brandy.
“This is the first time we’ve released our peach brandy finished rye whisky to the public, and we’re excited to hear what people think,” said Catoctin Creek co-owner and chief distiller, Becky Harris. “I tasted this at various proofs and really liked how the peach came through at 40% ABV. It’s still very rich, with a nice hint of summer to warm up those cooler nights to come.”
The new expression costs $45.90 and goes on sale in Catoctin Creek’s online store on Monday, Nov. 16 for curbside pickup or direct shipping in Virginia only. It will also be available at liquor stores throughout Catoctin Creek’s distribution footprint.
