"The company’s flagship Roundstone Rye is taking off way beyond its small-town roots."
Fox News, November 2015

"While many craft spirits claim the title of 'handmade,' Catoctin walks the walk with its line of whiskeys, gins, and brandies"
Southern Living, January 2015

"While gins can be all over the map these days, Watershed comes across with clear focus. Beautiful juniper nose and taste, with practically no alcohol harshness... Incredibly balanced... I just wanted to sit back and enjoy it."
Forbes, January 2015

"Everything they do seems to be imbued with same sense of effortless innovation and unassuming elegance."
MicroShiner, February 2015

"You can't ever go wrong with Catoctin Creek."
Men's Journal, September 3, 2014

"That's how rye is made."
The Washington Post, September 11, 2014

"A vibrant flavor, fresh on the palate. There's some juicy banana on the finish and a nice velvety mouthfeel."
— Max Watman, author Chasing the White Dog and Liquor.com contributor
