Barrel Select Hot Honey Finish Whisky Release

8:00am

Beginning Monday, May 23rd at 8am, we will release the Catoctin Creek Barrel Select Hot Honey Finish whisky!  Just in time for Father's Day!!  As usual, this will release in our Online Store, so you can mark your order for pickup or shipping at your convenience.

This is a collaboration whisky, our Barrel Select Rye Whisky aged in hot honey barrels from AR's Honey in Virginia. Only a few hundred bottles were made, so get yours ASAP!

We released this product last year, and it went quickly. The initial sip comes off as sweet--from the honey--but then the finish gives you this growing sensation of spice from the hot peppers that infused the honey! It is delicious and spicy and would make some amazing cocktails. It is also lovely sipped neat.

So come on in and get it while you can! Limited hand-numbered bottles -- when they're gone, they're gone!

Note that some natural cloudiness in this unfiltered product is normal.

Jazz at the Distillery - The Eric Byrd Trio

7:00pm—9:00pm

Join us for an intimate evening enjoying jazz at the distillery.  Performing this month is the world-renowned Eric Byrd Trio. For over twenty years, The Eric Byrd Trio, pianist/vocalist Eric Byrd, bassist Bhagwan Khalsa, and drummer Alphonso Young, Jr., have traveled the world as enthusiastic ambassadors of jazz. Rooted in swing and bebop, The Trio also embraces gospel and the blues as core elements of their expansive performance style. Their body of work spans seven unique studio and live recordings on which they shine as a Trio and as collaborators with an expanded 8-piece ensemble they call The Eric Byrd Trio: Brother Ray Band, in tribute to The Genius of Soul icon Ray Charles. On each recording, they take a rigorous, modern approach to standards as well as original compositions, playing with great acuity within the broad and rich jazz tradition.

This will be a great evening of cool jazz and amazing cocktails.  We don't do these very often, so be sure not to miss out on this chill evening!
