Owner description: 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.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.

Went to Catoctin Creek on a group on with friends and family for a tour. The tour was cancelled so they offered us a premium tasting. They have several different tasting flights including whiskey, brandy, or mixed drinks. The staff where very nice but my only complaint would be that I wish the lady serving us would have discussed more... More

A large group of us came for a Groupon deal they were offering to get a tasting and tour. The tour part was cancelled and so they gave us a premium flight instead. The drinks we had were small, but very tasty! They had some nice options available for us to choose from, but we could only get the one... More

We arrived without a reservation but they took us in as they had a free spot. We were lucky because they turned away people that came after us. The tasting room is very nicely finished in retro-modern industrial style, with large windows allowing a good look at the alembics/potstills. I had a flight of whiskey and my wife a flight... More

Cool place, great little sample cocktails. A fun place to meet friends for a quick visit. Per Virginia ABC laws, each visitor can only have one flight (either of the spirits or the cocktails), so it's not someplace you'd linger for too long. It is worth a visit though.

I attended a bottling workshop in their old location. It was awesome! One of the owners, Scott, gave us a tour first and then showed us the steps that we would be completing. It was awesome! This time, I took the tour in their new site. Not only is it a huge step up from their old place, but it... More

I've had the whiskey prior to my visit at a bar in DC and loved it. Grabbed the groupon as soon as I saw it to have a nice outing with my girls. Although this was a little drive for us, it was well worth it. Maya did an excellent job with our tour of the distillery and explaining the... More

We booked a tour and headed in to check this one out. The building itself is really cool, original old walls and floors and a great bar in the centre as you walk in. The girl doing the tour was lovely, and very informative, answered all our questions.. ( admittedly, theres not an awful lot to see on the tour... More

I've been to Catoctin Creek a half dozen times or more over the last three years or so. Most times I'm in Loudon County visiting family my brother-in-law and I head over. The new building is fine -- a real upgrade from the old spot in the mixed use strip where they started. I don't know that I'd pay to... More

We visited since someone had given us a voucher as a gift. The tour is ok, but I don't think I would have paid to take it. The best part of the building is the rustic old-fashioned look and feel of it, but with a bit of a modern edge. I really liked the way the owners had renovated it.... More
