Garden and Gun Magazine - Made in the South Awards

Garden and Gun MagazineGarden and Gun is a really cool magazine. Think Southern Living for the hipster generation. Honestly, when I first heard of it, I was intrigued by the name/  Upon closer inspection, I found more and more cool articles within its pages.  I couldn't put it down.

In the December 2010/January 2011 issue, Catoctin Creek was named as a winner in their Made in the South awards. As the cover states, "20 craftsmen, entrepreneurs, and artists who are making things right"! Heck, yeah!

Thanks to Donovan Webster and Haskell Harris (no relation), who wrote the article and supervised the competition.

Read the online G&G story, or our excerpt below from the magazine:

Catoctin Creek Organic Spirits, Purcellville, VA.  After years of plotting his escape from life as a software engineer, Scott Harris finally made his dream of distilling handmade spirits in the country happen.  Almost two years later, business is booming at he and his wife Becky's distillery in the Blue Ridge Mountains, now producing organic gin, rye, and a white whiskey called Mosby's Spirit (named for rogue Confederate colonel John S. Mosby).  The distillery sits on the north fork of Catoctin Creek, the first legal distillery in Loudoun County since Prohibition.  Try the gin with tonic and cucumber, the rye neat, and Mosby's Spirit with sweet tea.
