Catoctin Creek Distilling Co., The Virginia Rye Whisky℠ , and heavy metal rock band legends, GWAR are back for the second annual release of their infamous Ragnarök Rye. The Virginia natives teamed up to release the first collaboration in May 2021 and are excited to launch 1,000 more cases from the orbit of the moon. That is if GWAR doesn’t drink it all this time...
“We really thought we had seen the last of these guys, but they came back,” remarked Scott Harris, Founder and General Manager of Catoctin Creek. “You know how people tell you to never feed a stray cat? Yeah, that goes double for space monsters. We never should have given them that whisky. Now, we’ll never be rid of them!” The intergalactic visitors returned to Catoctin Creek, demanding even more of the tasty Ragnarök Rye whisky. Under threats of violence, the distillery team cranked out another batch.
Rated 93 points by Wine Enthusiast Magazine, Catoctin Creek Ragnarök Rye is a 92- proof intergalactic rye whisky that is pot stilled, then aged in charred new white oak, sugar maple, and cherrywood. This year’s bottle includes new and improved collectible metal die-cast toppers representing all five band members:
- Blóthar the Berserker
- Balsac the Jaws of Death
- Jizmak da Gusha
- Beefcake the Mighty
- Pustulus Maximus
The bottle’s new commemorative whisky label also matches the artwork from GWAR’s new album, “The New Dark Ages,” which was released digitally in June and will be available as a CD on July 15, and vinyl and cassette on Sept. 16 via the band’s label, Pit Records.
