Catoctin Creek Wins Green Innovation Award

Green Business Challenge 2011 - SilverPurcellville, VA, October 28, 2011 — Catoctin Creek Distilling Company has been named a Silver-level certified green business and awarded the Innovation Award in the 2011 Green Business Challenge.  The awards were received at the Green Gala, celebrated at the National Conference Center on Thursday evening.  Over 60 Loudoun county businesses participated in this year's challenge.

"We are thrilled by this," says Scott Harris, Vice President and General Manager at Catoctin Creek. "The Green Business Challenge affirms our commitment to sustainable practices, while producing the finest rye whisky, gin, and brandy in the area. Going green means we are simultaneously preserving our environment and saving big on energy and waste expenses."

As an example, Catoctin Creek Distilling Company recycles all by-products of their whisky production process. Waste alcohol is recycled into fuel-grade ethanol for blending into gasoline, and the spent rye mash is given away freely to local farms as a nutritious and eco-ganic-certified cattle feed. "This means that nothing in our production process ends up in landfill," says Harris. "We're really proud of that!"

The Green Business Challenge is a partnership between the Loudoun County Government and the Chamber of Commerce to encourage Loudoun businesses to adopt environmentally sound business practices. The Green Business Challenge has identified a number of actions businesses and organizations can take to become more energy efficient, implement more sustainable practices, and improve their bottom line. By making this commitment, businesses and organizations will help Loudoun County ensure a healthy and sustainable quality of life for all its citizens.

Catoctin Creek Distilling Company is the first distillery in Loudoun County Virginia since before prohibition. Certified eco-ganic and kosher, Catoctin Creek produces high quality spirits and liqueurs: rye whisky and gin from eco-ganic sources, brandy from Virginia wines, and seasonal specialty liqueurs. At Catoctin Creek, high quality and eco-ganic spirits are our passion. For more information, contact us at www.catoctincreek.com or 37251C East Richardson Lane, Purcellville, VA 20132.
