It’s a watershed moment in the history of American Gin.

Becky and Scott harris founded Catoctin Creek Distillery in 2009 in the back-woods of Purcellville, Virginia. Scott worked in software and Becky was a chemical engineer. It was Becky’s passion for the fermentation and distillation process that brought this couple out of corporate American and into your liquor cabinet. From their little distillery by the creek they produce a range of ten spirits, including Rye Whiskies, Brandy, Gin, and a handful of other drams.

Catoctin Creek Watershed Gin is named after the Chesapeake Bay watershed region where they are based. The Gin itself is a pure rye grain spirit, but the botanicals are kept as a trade secret. The juniper is there as you expect, and so is the classic spice of anise and cinnamon. But the texture is rich and floral as well, with what hints at lavender or elderflower. All we know for certain is that this organic Gin took the gold medal in Chicago last year and got a rating of 92 points “exceptional” from the Beverage Tasting Institute, and we couldn’t agree more.

Hardcore Gin lovers say the word Martini should never be preceded by Vodka, lobster, or pomegranate. They say the original and the only real Martini consists of Gin, Vermouth & olives, period!
While juniper-heavy Gin is perfect for your daily G&T, it is also complemented extremely well by tea flavours such as Earl Grey. Try steeping Earl Grey tea bags in Gin for an hour before mixing it with lemon juice and soda for a refreshing tipple. This one gets you additional kudos, so let’s keep it between us.
London Dry Gin is not always from London. Gin does not have the same geographical restrictions as Spirits such as Cognac, Scotch, or Tequila. Only a tiny handful of London Dry Gins are actually made in the city.
Classifications of Gin: London Dry Gin, Plymouth Gin, Old Tom Gin, Genever or Dutch, New Western or new American or International style.
How much Tonic is in a Gin & Tonic? The ideal proportions for a perfect Gin & Tonic is one part Gin and two parts Tonic.
Juniper berry is the main ingredient of Gin. They are usually picked wild by independent workers throughout Europe and sold via distributors to Gin makers worldwide.
