Catoctin Creek was founded by Becky Harris in 2009 as the first legal distillery in Loudoun County since before Prohibition located in Purcellville, Virginia. Virginia is the birthplace of American whiskey, and Catoctin Creek, we faithfully dedicates themselves to that tradition, producing Virginia's most awarded whiskey.
At Catoctin Creek, we believe in high quality food and spirits. We source our grain and fruit from local sources, free of pesticides and chemical additives that would come through in the spirits we produce. The results are the finest, cleanest spirits possible, with the greatest attention to detail in every single bottle we produce.
Catoctin Creek Rabble Rouser is 100% rye bottled in bond and is aged for four years and bottled at 100 proof. It pours a deep mahogany and has an incredibly enticing nose full of cherries. There’s nothing but rye in the bottle, so you’ve got plenty of spice to contend with notes of pepper and ash, but also a hell of a lot of caramel, like from the center of your favorite candy bar. There’s some stone fruit, maybe some figs and something nutty, like cashews. A layer of heat underscores all of it so you realize you’re drinking a relatively high-proof rye.
