Art of the Cocktailat Catoctin Creek Distillery
An Educational Series by Scott Harris
Ever wonder where the cocktail came from? What were the primary influences of the early bartenders? How did Prohibition affect the cocktail? What spirits were widely available before/during/after Prohibition? What's the difference between a fizz and a flip? What exactly are vermouth/bitters/shrubs, anyway? Catoctin Creek is proud to present, the an educational series on the history and the art of the cocktail. Starting in January, Scott Harris, founder and distiller at Catoctin Creek, will appear in the tasting room every Friday for this six-week series. Beginning at 7pm, Scott will personally guide you through the history and construction of several cocktail styles, including the old classics, and modern takes on the cocktail! There will be samples for sharing, and you are encouraged to buy bottles to take home with you and practice. Lots of practice.

About Catoctin Creek Distillery
Catoctin Creek® Distilling Company was founded by Becky and Scott Harris in 2009 as the first legal distillery in Loudoun County since before Prohibition. We are located in Purcellville, Virginia, in the heart of the Loudoun Valley. Loudoun County, often called D.C.'s Wine Country, is home to more than twenty vineyards and wineries, and it now has a distillery. 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. At Catoctin Creek, we believe in high quality food and spirits. Organic means higher quality: grain and fruit, sourced locally when possible, free of pesticides and chemical additives that would come through in the spirits we produce. Sure, it is more difficult to produce organically, but the results speak for themselves. Sic semper secales! ® Thus always to rye! Learn more about Catoctin Creek Distillery here.
