Nice to see Becky included in The Spirits Business roundup of ten female-founded spirits brands on International Women's Day.

Becky Harris co-founded Catoctin Creek Distilling Company in Virginia with her husband Scott in 2009. Based in Loudoun County in the north of Virginia, Catoctin Creek produces whiskey, gin and brandy.

With a degree in chemical engineering, Harris also serves as the chief distiller for the company and has previously worked at companies such as Amoco, YDK America, and CIBA, specialising in industrial processes and production systems.

In May 2020, Harris was appointed president of the board of directors for the American Craft Spirits Association.

In 2017, Constellation Brands acquired a minority stake in Catoctin Creek Distilling Company.

Last year, the producer spent US$1m on new equipment to triple its production capacity.
