Art of the Cocktail Class – Tour through the "Bartender's Canon"

7:00pm—9:00pm

Catoctin Creek is pleased to present, our FIFTH year of this six-part educational series on the art of the cocktail. This year, we have all new content exploring the canonical books of each generation of bartending since the beginning of cocktails through modern times. Starting in January, Scott Harris, founder and distiller at Catoctin Creek, will appear in the tasting room every Friday for this six-week series. Beginning at 7pm, Scott will personally guide you through the construction of several cocktails (think of it as a hands-on cocktail making workshop) as we explore the canonical books of each generation of bartending since the beginning of cocktails through modern times.

Tickets are $35 and includes four cocktails. There will be samples for sharing, and you are encouraged to buy bottles to take home with you and practice.  Lots of practice.

Burn's Night Dinner – A Scottish Midwinter Tradition

6:30pm—9:30pm

Burns Night is a tradition dating back a hundred years or more celebrating Scotland's national bard, Robert Burns. If you've been to one, you'll know what a rousing good time it is, and if you've not been before, you're in for a real treat.

Dinner will be a formal Scottish affair, with roasted lamb, neeps and tatties (potatoes and squash), and of course, the traditional haggis! (Be brave, young soul, and try some!) Oh, and lest we forget, there will be whisky and poetry flowing, provided by Scott Harris and Catoctin Creek Distillery. (Bring a poem to share!) Kilted attire suggested, but not required. Tie and jacket suggested.

Release Day!  Two Beltway Beer-to-Whisky Releases

12:00pm—7:00pm

On Saturday, at noon, we will release not one, but TWO new whisky expressions.  Both of these, first two in this series, are distilled from Beltway Brewing in Sterling, Virginia.  The OctoMalt American Malt Whisky began as their OctoIPA, while the Farmhouse Pale Malt started life as their Farmhouse Pale Ale.  Each one is totally delicious and a wonderful capture of the beer from the still.  Aged two years in charred new oak, they are dark, sumptuous, and with a distinctive floral note from the malts and hops. Members of the Beltway Brewing team will be present at the release, along with Becky Harris, to sign bottles and do Q&A. Bottles are $69.99 each at 92 proof. For more information about Beltway Brewing, click the link below.

Rye Society™ members may contact us at 540-751-3294 to obtain their bottles anytime before the release date.

Release Day!  Rabble Rouser Bottled in Bond Rye Whisky

12:00pm—4:00pm

On Saturday, at noon, we will release the Rabble Rouser Bottled in Bond Rye Whisky.  Due to better planning and growing reserves, we are happy to report that we have more available to sell!  For some of you, this may be the first time you've had a chance to purchase this extremely rare whisky.  Of this year's release, only 143 cases have been made, 25 of which will be released in our tasting room (the rest going nationally).  Please plan to arrive before noon if you absolutely must have a bottle.  Based on previous events, there is no guarantee we will have anything left after Saturday. Bottles are $99 for Rabble Rouser.  Due to the extreme rarity of these releases, there will be no tastings offered.  More details in the link below. 

VIP members may call us at 540-751-3294 to obtain a bottle anytime before the release date.
