Score: 89 "A great gin begins and ends with the question, 'can this be my daily standard gin?' Watershed Gin fits that bill perfectly."
– Matt Colglazier, American Craft Spirits, September 28, 2010
"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."
– Food & Wine, February 11, 2022
"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. "
– Forbes, January 31, 2015
"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."
– Modern Distillery Age, November 18, 2011
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.
