Fantastic whiskey, cocktails and service. Denise was great and the personal touch of having our names on a sign on the bar was very welcoming. Staff were knowledgeable and provided lots of information. And I loved the Dog!

The tour was very informative providing info of the beginning of the distillery and the owner distillers goals. Fun tasting and we bought both versions of gin. They are both terrific. It a great stop on a tour of wine country.

We came for a tour and tasting with my parents who were visiting northern Virginia from out of town. Tasting and tour were great....the staff was very knowledgeable and made our visit very enjoyable. We will be back.

A great distillery with very smooth whiskeys, but what was most impressive was their flavorful gin. It was crisp, refreshing, and full of flavors. It went well with tonic, but honestly, it was good enough to sip straight.

I had been to Catoctin Creek Distillery several times previously for tastings, and it's a beautiful space with a delicious product. The bottling workshop I just attended was informative and fun! I highly recommend this place to anyone travelling or living anywhere in the vicinity.

After visiting a nearby winery, we decided to explore this unique distillery and glad we had! Loved the drink menu options, the venue, knowledgeable and humorous staff, and the history. I appreciated the option to trade out the special drink with a pre-set flight selection...More
