July 2010 Update

June has passed, and so we reach the halfway point of 2010.

June saw a few milestones in our distribution, as we picked up distribution in Maryland and the District of Columbia with Bacchus Importers, Ltd. Bacchus is the premium distributor of high end and craft spirits in the Maryland and DC area, so we were naturally pleased to partner with them for selling our spirits north of the Potomac. Look for the spirits to start to arrive in stores this summer. And if you go into your local stores or restaurants, be sure to ask for Catoctin Creek!

In June, we were also pleased to obtain our final approval for our USDA certified eco-ganic labels. The new labels should roll out on products starting in July. Same great products as before, it's just that now they bear that coveted "eco-ganic" mark, proving our commitment to high quality spirits and sustainable practices.

Watershed Gin Mosby's Spirit Roundstone Rye

We have several great events coming up in July and early August. Keep an eye out for the following:

  • July24 - Catoctin Creek Distilling Workshop
  • July 31 - Bottling Day - Volunteers Wanted
  • August 6 - Catoctin Creek Dinner at Patowmack Farm Restaurant

For more information on these, or any other events, check our web site:

If you are a Virginia customer, it still helps to give the ABC manager the ordering codes when asking for our products. Some of the stores are becoming more familiar with the product, but some are still learning. If you are in a store and cannot find our product, ask the clerk to look up or order the following:

  • 27030 - Roundstone Rye
  • 952482 - Mosby's Spirit (special order by the case - 6 bottles)
  • 952483 - Watershed Gin (special order by the case - 6 bottles)

Some stores will even sell you the special order products by the bottle. (Ask real nicely, and they might for you too!)

Finally, we were thrilled beyond words to be highlighted in a story on the NBC Nightly News with Brian Williams. The news story is a great little history about starting the distillery, and we never get tired of watching ourselves! Check it out on our web site:

As always, there is lots of fun and information on our Facebook and Twitter pages, where you can stay up to date with the daily activities at the distillery.

Remember, "Think Global, Drink LOCAL!"SM
