Catoctin Creek was founded in 2009 by Becky and Scott Harris as the first legal distillery in Loudoun County. The distillery is located in Purcellville, Virginia, in the heart of the Loudoun Valley. Virginia is the birthplace of American whiskey. The name Catoctin is derived from the Native American tribal name "Kittocton," which according to legend means "place of many deer." Catoctin describes a mountain range and the creek of the same name that flows past the distillery into the Potomac River and the Chesapeake Watershed. Grains and fruit are sourced locally, free of pesticides and chemical additives. Catoctin Creek Roundstone Single Barrel Rye is made according to traditional rye recipes used before Prohibition.
