Introducing Loudoun County's First Distillery Since Prohibition

Introducing Loudoun County's First Distillery Since Prohibition

 

Starting July 1st you can pick up your bottles of whiskey and gin for this Fourth of July weekend at the family owned and operated Catoctin Creek Distillery. Scott and Becky Harris have run this mom and pop distillery since February 2009, but they have not been able to sell their bottles of alcohol at their distillery….until tomorrow.

“Starting tomorrow we can start to sell bottles here at the distillery. We had to change the law so that we could do that,” said Scott Harris.

Prior to Catoctin Creek, Becky was a chemical engineer, and Scott worked in government IT and computer science. Now the couple produces certified organic whiskey, gin, brandy and liqueurs from scratch by their own hands all the way from mashing to bottling.
