Who we are

Catoctin Creek is a craft distillery, specializing in Virginia rye whisky. We believe in high quality food and spirits. We source our grain and fruit from local and organic sources, free of pesticides and chemical additives that would come through in the spirits we produce. The results are the finest, cleanest spirits possible, with the greatest attention to detail in every single bottle we produce.


Why we went solar

We went solar in 2013 as a part of a business expansion. Distilling spirits is an energy intensive process. As a business that prioritizes sustainability, we felt if we were going to expand we needed to take steps to ensure we were mitigating our impact on the environment.

Benefits of going solar

Going solar has allowed us to “walk the walk” when it comes to energy use. Solar has become a part of how we tell our story and how we operate our business. It reaffirms our commitment to sustainability and frees up monthly cash that, instead of going toward electric bills, can now be used to help us produce Virginia’s most awarded whisky, Roundstone Rye.
