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.

We were lucky enough to visit Purcellville, VA the same weekend that Catoctin Creek Distillery was having their bottling workshop. What a fun and interesting way to learn about the whiskey they make and sample the finished product. We will definitely return the next time we are in the area.

The bottling workshop is great. Not only do you get to work at each station in the bottling process, you get to taste their wonderful products and learn about the distilling process in detail.

I visited Catoctin Creek Distillery to scope it out for for a future birthday, and I couldn't have been happier. The atmosphere was cozy, the tasting flights were awesome, and the staff was friendly and informative. The building itself is historic with interesting factoids located around the facility, and they have a variety of kichy books, syrups, bitters and souvenirs.... More

Tried the monthly special flight and all three were very good tastings. I tried the whiskey flight on a previous visit, which was also good. The bartenders were very friendly, and surprised me with a free shot glass for my birthday.

Leanne was our tour guide and did a fantastic job. She knew the details of the distillery process and her passion for the process was evident. Would highly recommend the tour and whisky tasting.

Got a great 30-minute very instructive and insightful tour at this wonderful little distillery. They make one of the most original and distinct gin I've ever tasted. Very glad we made the stop.
