Take a Virtual Tour

Do you know where your whisky is made?

There is a lot of craft whisky in the market today, but much of it is made in a large factory in Indiana and sold at a premium as handmade.  At Catoctin Creek, we didn't get into this business to bottle someone else's whiskey, but to make our own unique whisky from grain to bottle—right here in Purcellville, Virginia. And making whisky has been our passion since 2009.  #truecraft

You can watch over fifty videos that go deep into all aspects of our business, from how we fill bottles of brandy, how we mash and distill, to how we feed the cows with the spent rye mash.
