Catoctin Creek Watershed Gin receives silver medal in New York

Watershed Gin takes silver medals at the NYISC in 2010New York, NY, November 28, 2011 — Catoctin Creek Distilling Company was awarded a silver medal in the 2011 New York International Spirits Competition for its Watershed Gin®.

"Gin is a product in a very competitive market," said founder and distiller Becky Harris. "so we are very happy to do well in a major competition like the NYISC."  Catoctin Creek Watershed Gin is a formulation based on the distillery's eco-ganic rye spirits, with a maceration of ten herbs and spices, including juniper, coriander, anise, cinnamon, and orange peel.  Ms. Harris describes the gin as a "modern style" gin that realizes her expression of the greenness of Loudoun County, Virginia, where the gin is made.

The New York International Spirits Competition is the first major international spirits competition to be judged solely by members of the trade who have purchasing power through their stores, bars, distribution networks and their resulting ability to make a direct impact on brand sales. This year’s judging panel included buyers from the top retail stores, restaurant and bar owners, distributors and importers who all donated their time and palates without hesitation or compensation.

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 and liqueurs are our passion. For more information, contact us at www.catoctincreek.com or 37251C East Richardson Lane, Purcellville, VA 20132.
