You've been GWARned! GWAR bottle stoppers are coming.
As you are probably aware, each bottle of Blanton's bourbon comes with a groovy topper of a jockey on a horse in one of 8 positions.
Well, now you can get one topped with members of GWAR with your purchase of Catoctin Creek's Ragnarök Rye beginning (and surely, ending) on May 28, 2021.
The product is:
Aged in charred new white oak, then sugar maple and cherrywood, each bottle of Catoctin Creek’s 92-proof intergalactic rye whisky comes with a cast-metal collectable bottle topper featuring each of the five members of GWAR: Blóthar the Berserker; Balsac the Jaws of Death; Jizmak da Gusha; Beefcake the Mighty; and Pustulus Maximus.
In the press release, they say:
Catoctin Creek founder and general manager, Scott Harris [says], "The band members drank everything we distilled, and then demanded we create bottle toppers using rare metal ore sourced from the fillings of trolls,” continues Harris. “I knew our original schedule was shot. I mean, it's really cool to have rare metal in our bottle design, but it was hard rounding up all those trolls."
To buy it:
Up to 200 cases of Ragnarök Rye (92 proof/46% ABV) $99/750mL will be available throughout Catoctin Creek’s national distribution footprint beginning Friday, May 28, with more on the way soon. It will also be on sale in the distillery’s online store for curbside pickup or direct shipping in Virginia only. Pre-sale orders can be purchased through Seelbachs.com.
