Catoctin Creek x tr:Eat - Whiskey meets Chocolate
Join The Spirit Specialist and special guests Scott Harris - co-founder of the Catoctin Creek Distillery - and Chris Corcoran - founder of tr:Eat - for a live online exploration of barrel finished rye whiskies paired with hand-made chocolates.
Joining live from the distillery in Virginia, Scott will introduce the Cask Proof Virginia Rye Whiskey as a baseline, before guiding you through four releases that have been finished in a variety of different cask types to produce a variety of different flavour profiles. Chris in turn will also provide the thinking behind his hand-made chocolates produced for each sample to perfectly complement those flavour changes between each finish.
Each sample pack will contain the following samples in addition to the chocolate selection:
- Catoctin Creek Cask Proof
- Catoctin Creek Madeira Cask Finish
- Catoctin Creek Rum Cask Finish
- Catoctin Creek Zinfandel Cask FInish
- Catoctin Creek Stout Cask Finish
The chocolate flavours are TBC, at the time of writing Chris has received samples of the whiskies and is working on his line-up!
Tickets costs £30 and each purchase entitles you to a pack of 5 x 30ml measures to enjoy on the night along with the chocolate selection, plus exclusive access to a private Zoom call on the evening of Friday 1st July in which an informative and entertaining presentation will be given.
If you can't make the event in person, don't worry, the stream will be recorded and uploaded to a private YouTube link, meaning you can still drink along at your leisure!

Sample packs will be shipped out to ensure they arrive in good time for the event (this may not necessarily be at the time you purchased your ticket due to the chocolates needing to be as fresh as possible), however please be aware that delays by couriers outside our control may prevent the packs arriving to you in time, so we recommend purchasing packs for shipping by Saturday 25th June at the very latest.This event is strictly limited in numbers so don't delay in purchasing!
