Catoctin Creek receives honors for Craft Producer, Master Distiller and Brand Ambassador of the Year
Purcellville, VA (January 29, 2016) – Whisky Magazine recently announced their Icons of Whisky awards, and in the American division, Catoctin Creek Distilling Company was shortlisted for three of the awards:
- Craft Producer of the Year
- Master Distiller of the Year (Becky Harris)
- Brand Ambassador of the Year (Chad Robinson)
"While we weren't ultimately selected for the final awards," remarked Scott Harris, founder of the distillery, "to be included in the shortlist among such great industry names is an honor indeed for which we're very proud!"
From the Icons of Whisky web site:
The Icons of Whisky Awards are an internationally recognized set of awards covering all aspects of the whisky industry, from retail to production. Whisky Magazine celebrated the finest companies and individuals in the whisky industry with our annual Icons of Whisky awards, a highlight in the whisky calendar.
With new categories for this year, including Master Distiller / Master Blender, Travel Retailer and World Whisky Ambassador to name a few, there is no doubt that some new names will come in to the mix. 2015 saw the launch of a new nominations and voting process where we invited producers, retailers, distributors and importers to have their say and help our editorial panel identify those deserving of an Icons title. Now familiar with the online process, the industry has once again spoken and left us with the unenviable task of making the final decision.
