The name "Catoctin" is a regional name. Pronounced Ka-TOCK-tin, the name derives from the Indian tribal name "Kittocton" which, legend has it, meant "place of many deer". Catoctin describes a range of mountains and the creek which flows picturesquely into the Potomac River and Chesapeake Watershed.
Catoctin Creek Distillery reviews
The staff was incredibly friendly, knowledgeable, and accommodating. Great whiskey, too, and the history of the building was fascinating. A must-do in the area. more »
The folks there clearly love what they're doing, and took the time to answer questions with just the right amount of detail. We'll be back with friends! more »
Fabulous stop, interesting gin, a little more citrus than juniper. Great rye - not generally a rye drinker, more into the burbon; this was great. So many goodies to take home! Make sure you put this place on your itinerary!
I went to Catoctin distillery on a sunday afternoon. It was a great experience. Peter told us all about the workings of a distillery while on the tour. He was knowledgeable and answered all our questions. The cask strength and 80 proof whiskies were my favorites. My wife loved the watershed gin and the peach brandy. I would definitely go back soon.
