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.

  • Fabulous stop, interesting gin, a little more citrus than juniper. Great rye - not generally a rye drinker, more into the burbon; this was great. So many goodies to take home! Make sure you put this place on your itinerary!
  • I went to Catoctin distillery on a sunday afternoon. It was a great experience. Peter told us all about the workings of a distillery while on the tour. He was knowledgeable and answered all our questions. The cask strength and 80 proof whiskies were my favorites. My wife loved the watershed gin and the peach brandy. I would definitely go back soon.
