Catoctin Creek Bottling Day Workshop

Bottling WorkshopCatoctin Creek Distilling Company will conduct a BOTTLING DAY on SUNDAY, April 26, 2015 at 10:00am. Volunteers wanted. We'll buy breakfast for all that attend.  This is always such a fun workshop, and you get a special tour from Scott and Becky Harris, recently named by Southern Living as one of the top 50 people in changing the South in 2015!

Learn how to bottle, cap, seal, and label Roundstone Rye. Get your chance to work the magic "whisky cow"! Or maybe you'd like to try your hands at operating "Ninette", our fussy French labeling machine!

This is a fun and informative day! We'll start the morning off with breakfast and a tour from the owners, Scott and Becky Harris, explaining how we make our hand-crafted spirits, then for about 90 minutes, we bottle whisky, and wrap up the morning with a tasting of our spirits!  How cool is that?

You can even purchase a signed bottle that you filled yourself... what a perfect gift idea!

A Toast to D.C.

Tourists may think of it as a town of monuments, but those of us who live here really know why Washington is such a vibrant place: Its character and history make this a city like no other. Add the burgeoning home-grown beer and cocktail scene, and you’ve got one more reason to celebrate. Tonight, raise a toast to D.C.’s unique local flavor and home-town pride at a party that salutes its distinctive collection of neighborhoods—and the newest generation of brewers and distillers to make the city their home.

Enjoy after-hours access to the elegant 1902 Carnegie Library on Mount Vernon Square, home to the Historical Society of Washington, D.C. (The sweeping central staircase is the ideal place to make an Instagram-worthy grand entrance.) Taste samples from Atlas Brew Works, Port City Brewing Company, DC Brau, Catoctin Creek Distilling Company and New Columbia Distillers.

Carnegie Library

Take in the Historical Society’s newest exhibition, For the Record: Artfully Historic D.C., which captures architectural portraits of Washington sites tagged as among the most-endangered places by the DC Preservation League. Find your neighborhood on the map of the District that covers one of the floors, pose with friends in the photo booth, explore exhibits on a digital scavenger hunt, and dance to music mixed by DJ As-One. The evening is a great way to meet your city neighbors and trade stories with other party-goers about what makes your Washington special.

Special featureS for VIP ticket-holders: Enjoy exclusive early access to the event from 7 to 8 p.m., as well as Chesapeake Bay oysters from Virginia’s Rappahannock Oyster Company and War Shore Oyster Company, drink samples, light hors d’oeuvres, and a special commemorative pint glass to hold your local brew.

Matt DukeAbout the Artists: Matt Duke

Matt Duke is a South Jersey-bred singer/songwriter currently signed to Drexel University's student-run record label, MAD Dragon Records, and Rykodisc. Duke began playing piano at the age of seven, and by ten he developed a deep love for the arts. Inspired by artists such as Van Morrison, The Band, and Pearl Jam, he taught himself how to play his mother's vintage guitar. Duke spent his high school years at Philadelphia's St. Joseph's Prep, where he was exposed to Ani DiFranco, Ben Harper, Tool, and Damien Rice. Impressed by their poignant lyrics and musical ambition, Duke started writing and performing at coffee houses in Philadelphia area. By the winter of 2004, Duke recorded his first demo, which landed him placement in MAD Dragon Records compilation CD XYX.
