Catoctin Creek is certified organic by Pennsylvania Certified Organic.
Why organic? Our organic spirits, and the ingredients that go into them, are free from synthetic chemical pesticides and fertilizers--chemicals which would come through in the distillates we produce. The water we use is filtered for purity. We are independently inspected each year to ensure our compliance with regulations governing the production of organic food.
In short, the organic label guarantees you a high level of transparency and accountability in how we produce our spirits. It underscores our commitment to providing you the highest quality spirits and to protecting and restoring our environment.
At Catoctin Creek, we are proud to offer one of the nation’s only lines of organic spirits. If you have any questions concerning our organic certification, please contact us.
