The RAMMYS 2015 Trip Advisor 2015 Certificate of Excellence Washington Post Editors' Pick Virginia's Finest

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

"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

"Hands down the best white [whiskey] I've ever tasted!"
American Craft Spirits

"A beautiful unaged whisky" ... "Especially recommended"
— Jason Wilson, Washington Post

"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

"A gentleman's moonshine."
Beverage Testing Institute

"Becky makes some of the sharpest cuts for the cleanest liquor in the industry."
Proof 66

"There are some American whiskies I would sip on every day if I could... Catoctin Creek Rye"
— Joshua Hatton, Jewish Single Malt Whisky Society
