MyJoogTV Episode 6: Andrew McKnight at Catoctin Creek Distilling Company

This episode of MyJoogTV features our new favorite folk singer Andrew McKnight and distiller Scott Harris of Catoctin Creek Distilling Company. We discussed the distillation process for organic rye whiskey, social media, government regulation of spirits, and how McKnight and the Harris' are kindred spirits regarding the eat, drink, and play music locally. The Roundstone Rye we sampled was excellent, lighter than many bourbons, but flavorful and completely smooth at the tail.  The highlight of the afternoon was listening to McKnight perform "Letter to Colonel Mosby" while sitting on an oak barrel in front of the still. At, we are followers of "Free the Grapes, now it's time to Free the Shine. The video is available to download for iTunes and Windows Media Player.

  1. Shucks! We were in Bluemont, VA a few weeks ago and my husband would have been very happy to know that there was a whiskey distillery to visit. Gives us a good reason to go back. Andrew, as usual, terrific performance!

  2. Great story! It's refreshing to see an interviewer who has clearly done his homework. I've been an Andrew McKnight fan for a long time, and will now have to check out Catoctin Distilling Co. I'm thirsty already!
