Certified Organic & Kosher

Certified Organic

Catoctin Creek is certified organic by Pennsylvania Certified Organic.

USDA OrganicWhy 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.

We're Vegan Too!

For those who keep a vegan diet, we occasionally get the question, "Are your products vegan?"

Yes, our products, are vegan. We use no animal-derived ingredients, nor any animal by-products for filtering or refining our product.

Sometimes, the question of yeast arises. Yeast is required in all fermented beverages, including beer, wine, kombucha, and of course, whiskey, gin and brandy. The yeast organism (Saccharomyces sp.) is a eukaryotic micro-organisms of the fungi kingdom, which means it is neither plant nor animal.  More about that here.

In short, if you can eat mushrooms, you can drink fermented beverages on a vegan diet.
