Watershed Gin

Watershed Gin®

Paying respect to the Chesapeake Bay watershed, in which our beloved Catoctin Creek does flow, this gin is a bit of a watershed itself.

Distilled from rye grain, with a secret recipe of herbs and spices, Catoctin Creek Watershed Gin® is unlike any gin you've tried. Amazingly complex, with a rye base that shines through subtle citrus and cinnamon notes, essences of fresh cut hay, and of course a crisp juniper character.  Together, they make Watershed Gin a fine cocktail mixer.

Try it with the traditional tonic and a slice of lime (or a Meyer Lemon, for a real treat!). Or mix it into your favorite summertime refreshers.

Suggested retail price $34.19 per bottle. 46% ABV, 750 ml

    "A rich, flavor packed gin for craft cocktails."

    Beverage Testing Institute, December 1, 2016

  • "Distilled in copper pots from rye, there
    is a density to this gin as soon as you nose
    it, a cinnamon stick and woodsy spice
    character that tees up a spice-tinged gin
    whose assertive juniper notes are completely
    re-contextualized by the unique spirit
    at its base."

    "Will make bold cocktails."

    Beverage Testing Institute, July 27, 2011

  • "While gins can be all over the
    map these days, Watershed comes across with
    clear focus. Beautiful juniper nose
    and taste, with practically no alcohol
    harshness... Incredibly balanced...
    I just wanted to sit back and enjoy it...
    London Dry with a Virginia accent. "

    "A great gin begins and ends with the
    question, 'can this be my daily
    standard gin?' Watershed Gin fits that
    bill perfectly."

    American Craft Spirits, September 28, 2010

  • "A spicy, woody and soft aroma. Licorice
    and anise are full-on in the first taste
    and big in the finish. Soft juniper.
    A good mouthfeel and full body."
