About Scott & Becky

Scott and Becky Harris, photograph by Mark RhodesBecky

Becky graduated with honors from the University of Wisconsin, Madison. As a chemical engineer, she worked at companies like Amoco, YDK America, and CIBA, specializing in industrial processes and production systems. Becky brought this knowledge and applied it to something she loved–making the finest distilled spirits in Virginia. Wine, grains, berries, it matters not. If there is a fruit, vegetable, tuber or root with starch or sugar in it, you can bet that Becky will try to distill it.

Scott

Scott graduated with honors from Georgia Tech. He has spent the last twenty years building a software career in telecommunication systems and government IT solutions and traded it all in for the chance to own and run his own distillery. Liquors of all types are his greatest love (besides Becky, of course). Whiskeys from Scotland, Ireland and the United States. Brandy from France and Germany. And an eclectic German bitters called Boonekamp. "It's good for the digestive!" as his old German grandmother used to say.

At Catoctin Creek

Scott and Becky are happy to be doing something they love: Producing the finest organic and kosher spirits in the Northern Virginia and the DC metro area. At Catoctin Creek, high quality and organic spirits are our passion.

Cheers!
