Catoctin Creek Mosby's Spirit

Catoctin Creek Mosby's Spirit Wine Details

Description: John S. Mosby was a Civil War colonel and leader of a local band of rangers called Mosby's Raiders. Called the "Gray Ghost" for his elusiveness during the war, John S. Mosby was fiercely independent and ever loyal to his beloved Virginia. Catoctin Creek Mosby's Spirit recalls the tradition of clear grain spirits common in the 19th century. This spirit hearkens back to the fierce independence that forged our nation despite the conflict that almost destroyed it. Catoctin Creek Mosby's Spirit is a delicious rye grain spirit, some call it a "white whiskey", with a smooth, sweet and undeniably pleasing cereal taste with floral notes and citrus. If we aged this stuff, it'd be rye whiskey. But unaged, it is just as heavenly.

Varietal Definition
