I had the chance to spend an hour with Scott Harris, co-founder with Becky Harris, of Catoctin Creek Distillery in Purcellville, VA. He gave me the full-tour and chatted with my about their plans to add new equipment later this summer that will more the double their production capabilities. He also gave me a taste of their wonderful Rabble Rouser Virginia Rye. I see why folks love it so much and it flies off the shelves when available. Pictured is the Distiller's Edition 92 proof Virginia Rye I purchased for my home bar, it's the favorite of the crew at Catoctin, and will be much enjoyed by myself and friends in the coming weeks. Catoctin Creek is a great operation with a warm and friendly team. Well worth a visit by anyone who loves great whiskey.
