Company statement on "Mosby's Spirit" in light of recent events
In light of recent events in Charlottesville, our "Mosby's Spirit" product will be discontinued. The product has been discontinued from Virginia ABC shelves (it's on closeout), and we will be depleting it in the tasting room for an ultimate discontinue of the product.
This was a difficult decision, partly because the Mosby's Spirit is a very fine product, and John S. Mosby, the product's namesake, was not an egregious character. (More on that here.) However, if his moniker causes any of our customers discomfort, that is not what we desire. So we have decided to phase out the product.
Catoctin Creek strongly supports inclusion, equality, diversity, and community, and we strongly and clearly condemn white supremacy, ethnic nationalism, Nazis and all other forces of evil which seek to divide us.
