Press Release: Catoctin Creek Holds Steady Virginia Pricing; Lowers Prices on White Spirits

Loudoun County distillery absorbs Virginia ABC mark-up; Mosby's Spirit and Watershed Gin prices will drop

November 25, 2014, Purcellville, VA – Despite the increase in mark-ups recently announced by the Virginia ABC board, Catoctin Creek will hold steady its retail pricing, essentially absorbing the cost of the mark-ups at the wholesale level and shielding the consumer from the price mark-up for its own products.  The retail price on Watershed Gin and Mosby's Spirit, the distillery's "white" spirits category, will be further reduced.

"We felt it was unfair to push another price increase to the consumers in a state that already sees the third highest liquor mark-up in the country," remarked Scott Harris, founder of the distillery.  "This time, we've decided to absorb the mark-up increases to hold our prices essentially steady so our customers do not feel this pain."

The distillery will still see minor changes in their pricing due to the Virginia ABC's new policy of "rounding to the nines," which means all pricing within the ABC system will be rounded up to nine cents in the last digit.  (For example, a product that once cost $34.15 would become $34.19.)

Catoctin Creek's new per-bottle retail pricing in Virginia, will be as follows:

  • Roundstone Rye "80 proof" - $44.99
  • Roundstone Rye "92 proof" - $52.79
  • Mosby's Spirit - $29.49 (new lower price)
  • Watershed Gin - $34.19 (new lower price)
  • 1757 Virginia Brandy - $49.99
  • Pearousia Pear Brandy - $42.49
  • Short Hill Mountain Peach Brandy - $42.49

As required by law, the pricing at the distillery store will match the Virginia ABC system pricing.  New pricing becomes effective December 8, 2014.

Press Release: Catoctin Creek Announces Commemorative Pear Brandy Bottle

Pearousia Pear Brandy with Pear in the Bottle to Commemorate Five Year Anniversary!

PearousiaOctober 14, 2014, Purcellville, VA – To commemorate the five year anniversary of Catoctin Creek Distilling Company, the Purcellville distillery is releasing twenty four hand-filled, hand-numbered bottles of seasonal "Pearousia" pear brandy with a full pear in each bottle.

"This bottling is very special," says Catoctin Creek founder, Scott Harris.  "In 2009, Becky and I established the first legal distillery in Loudoun County since Prohibition, and the first alcohol we produced was pear brandy.  The day our equipment was operational, we reached out to Doug Fabbioli, proprietor of Fabbioli Cellars, and asked him for help in obtaining something to distill.  He graciously offered us some of his pear wine, which ultimately became Catoctin Creek's Pearousia pear brandy.  Pearousia was the first distillate ever produced at Catoctin Creek. Our success was only possible through the pioneering work already done in Loudoun County by Doug Fabbioli."

Pearousia"If it weren't for Doug, we wouldn't be where we are today," said Becky Harris, chief distiller and founder of the distillery. "His generosity of spirit and can-do attitude inspired us and helped get us over the hump in starting our business!"

"Working with Becky and Scott at Catoctin Creek Distillery has been a great experience," said Doug Fabbioli, owner of Fabbioli Cellars.  "Our collaboration has helped both our businesses as well as created a model for other operations to expand the rural economy and continue using locally grown crops in more products."

PearousiaThis release of Pearousia pear brandy, each bottle containing an Asian pear, is released at 750ml.  Early in the spring, each bottle was attached to the pear trees at Patent House Farm Orchard in Lovettsville, Virginia, where the pollinated blossom inside the bottle was allowed to grow into a full-grown pear.  Fast forward to summer, when the ripened pears were cut from the trees and the bottles filled with Pearousia pear brandy.  Each bottle is individually numbered and signed by Scott and Becky Harris, and also signed by Doug Fabbioli.

Catoctin Creek Pearousia "Pear in the Bottle" will be available for $149 only at the Purcellville distillery starting October 14th.  No call in orders will be accepted.  Only customers arriving at the distillery will have the opportunity to purchase this rare release.
