March 22, 2014 – The Jewish Whisky Company has partnered with Virginia’s Catoctin Creek Distillery to produce its first rye whiskey for sale to Single Cask Nation members. The whiskey comes from a single cask matured for slightly more than two years at the distillery, with the first year in an ex-Bourbon cask and the second year in a used white wine cask.
In a news release, Jewish Whisky Company co-founder Jason Johnstone-Yellin noted that this is the first American whiskey bottled for Single Cask Nation members.
“We couldn’t be more thrilled to partner with Catoctin Creek on this whisky. Becky and Scott (Harris) produce some gorgeous spirits; we’d been pouring alongside them for years at various whisky festivals, and over the years we’ve become friends. We are delighted to bottle Catoctin Creek as the first American offering for Single Cask Nation.”
The whisky has been bottled at cask-strength 61.6% ABV, and just 286 bottles will be available at a price of $75 each.
