John Shope, Virginia Brand Ambassador for Catoctin Creek Distillery.

The Art of the Cocktail - 2022 Summer Series

Every Friday, 7:00pm - 9:00pm


Starting July 22, and for six weeks every Friday, John Shope, our Virginia Sales Manager, will be leading this summertime series with a host of brand new cocktails honoring the best of regional and seasonal ingredients! Join John for a lively session, with equal parts learning, drinking and fun!

Classes will run every Friday night at 7pm via Zoom. Ingredients will be easy to obtain, and the lessons will be fun as ever. Since this will be via Zoom, we expect lots of interaction and questions and good times. It's a drinks class, after all!

Classes this season:

  • July 22 - Dog Days of Summer
  • July 29 - State Cocktails Surrounding Virginia
  • August 5 - Celebrating Virginia Agriculture
  • August 12 - Celebrity Cocktails
  • August 19 - Evolution of the Old Fashioned
  • August 26 - The Comeback Kids

Tickets are $15 per person for the lessons, which leaves you room to purchase the ingredients. You can purchase our spirits in our online store.
