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. A bottle of organic Roundstone Rye 92-proof is what you're looking for if you want your socks knocked off. Just the amount of spice you'd expect from a great rye, but it won't have you breathing fire.
