Catoctin Creek

Catoctin Creek Loudoun County's first Distillery since Prohibition!
(549)

Catoctin Creek® Distilling Company was founded by Becky and Scott Harris in 2009 as the first legal distillery in Loudoun County since before Prohibition. We are located in Purcellville, Virginia, in the heart of the Loudoun Valley. Loudoun County, often called D.C.'s Wine Country, is home to more than twenty vineyards and wineries, and it now has a distillery. The name "Catoctin" is a regional name. Pronounced Ka-TOCK-tin, the name derives from the Indian tribal name "Kittocton" which, legend has it, meant "place of many deer". Catoctin describes a range of mountains and the creek which flows picturesquely into the Potomac River and Chesapeake Watershed.

Mission: At Catoctin Creek, we believe in high quality food and spirits. Organic means higher quality: grain and fruit, sourced locally when possible, free of pesticides and chemical additives that would come through in the spirits we produce. Sure, it is more difficult to produce organically, but the results speak for themselves. And kosher is another way to respect the tradition of high quality foods.

Last night we enjoyed our yearly whisky dinner at Aldie Mill. This great fundraiser helps to support the historic mill's education and preservation programs. This dinner is amazing! Four courses, and punctuated with historic commentary by Rich Gillespie, our beloved local historian in Loudoun County. A night filled with whisky, good friends, good food, and lots of Loudoun County charm. Can't believe it was our 8th dinner this year!! And thanks to Tracy for making it all work.

Two days until @bindersstash leaves to go shoot episode 2! Now..... @catoctincreek Cask Strength Rye is incredibly smooth for it being 116 proof. Which was surprising. It isn’t lingering either. Very well balanced. So I decided to compliment it with this @tatuajecigars 15th edition Miami. Why? Why not... that’s why. Two absolute winners in my book. What’s everyone’s Thursday look like. Story=contest. Let’s goooooooo. .

Thank you One Nation Under Whisky for the wonderful opportunity to be on your podcast! A fantastic level of detail for the whisky nerds out there!

Season 2, Episode 12 of One Nation Under Whisky is now live and we're talking Rye Whisky with Catoctin Creek owners, Becky and Scott Harris.

Rye whisky has made, and continues to make, a huge come back in the US. One of America's first spirits, rye whisky is made throughout the country. Few, however, produce a 100% rye whisky and that's where Catoctin Creek comes in.

Listen in as Becky and Scott Harris discuss their processes, the wood experiments (that sounds naughty), and as they talk, too, about the ongoing tariffs and trade war that may or may not affect, not just American whisk(e)y sales into the EU (a burgeoning business for many American whisky producers), but the distilleries and families that work at these distilleries.

We're available via nearly every podcast app (as well as Shopify now) but, here's some links for you, too:
