Named after the Chesapeake Bay watershed in which the Catoctin Creek flows, Catoctin's Gin is made from an organic rye grain base, as well as organic herbs and spices. The crisp juniper aroma is complemented by the rye base which contributes a unique character offering subtle citrus and cinnamon notes, and a touch of fresh cut hay.
A spicy, woody and soft aroma. Licorice and anise are full-on in the first taste and big in the finish. Soft juniper. A good mouthfeel and full body.
