Brandy is an old world tradition--our European ancestors drank brandy after dinner for its soothing and warming qualities. Imagine settling in with a nice glass of warm brandy, while sitting by a fire with your favorite novel. Or try adding it to a warm glass of eggnog. Delicious!
Catoctin Creek 1757® Virginia Brandy is Virginia's first commercial grape brandy since the establishment of the Commonwealth. Made from the finest locally-grown Virginia wine grapes, it is distilled and aged in premium French Bordeaux oak barrels for at least two years. Catoctin Creek Brandy is a fine sipping brandy unlike run-of-the-mill brandy on the shelves today.
Try some, and you'll see. This is fine stuff that warms the heart.

Pearousia® is a very special collaboration between Fabbioli Cellars and Catoctin Creek. Doug Fabbioli, owner and vintner at Fabbioli Cellars, produced a lovely pear wine, and we distilled it into brandy. After being casked in oak for a time, this pear brandy has emerged as a truly lovely and unique offering, and our first fruit spirit.
This pear brandy maintains the fresh aroma of the fruit, where you can smell the light and musky elements of pear intertwined with the caramel and vanilla of the oak. With your first sip, you taste the sweetness and flesh of the pear fruit, and the aftertaste leaves a long lingering and pleasant flavor of the spirit. Honestly, Pearousia is simply divine!
Pearousia is an extremely limited release local pear brandy, produced from seasonal fruit offerings, and will be sold in 375 ml bottles so that it is accessible to more people. Only 600 bottles will be made this season.

Short Hill Mountain lies in far western Loudoun County, just west of the Catoctin Valley. The region was once famous for Quakers, Civil War skirmishes, and the occasional bottle of homemade peach brandy.
Catoctin Creek Short Hill Mountain Peach Brandy is made from local western Loudoun peaches, distilled, aged and bottled at the peak of perfection. Think "peach cobbler" in a glass.
Loudoun summer memories feature thick, soupy, evening air, the lazy buzz of cicadas, and the lush juiciness of a perfectly ripe peach. We hope this limited-release Short Hill Mountain Peach Brandy evokes that perfect August evening, wherever you may be.
