Chicago, IL (December 2, 2016) – The 2016 Beverage Testing Institute has awarded Catoctin Creek a gold medal for their Watershed Gin.
The awards won are as follows:
Tasting notes for the Watershed Gin describe a "Clear color. Attractive, fruity, spicy aromas and flavors of fresh baked fruitcake, gingerbread, dried pear, and candied violets with a silky, bright, dry-yet-fruity medium body and a licorice, brown spices, honeyed raisin rye-safflower toast, and floral honey finish. A rich, flavor packed gin for craft cocktails."
The gold medal for Watershed Gin comes on the heals of three other awards recently won from the same organization in October.
Watershed Gin is available where ever fine spirits are sold in VA, DC, MD, DE, and NY.
