Purcellville’s Catoctin Creek Distilling Company is undertaking a major expansion and adding 10 new states to its distribution map. The craft distillery’s growth comes, in part, because of the decision by Total Wine to carry the entire line of its products in retail stores nationwide
Catoctin Creek will now be available in 25 states and the District of Columbia.
Catoctin Creek uses local and organic ingredients to produce a its small-batch craft spirits. Total Wine will carry Roundstone Rye, Braddock Oak Rye Roundstone Rye – 92 Proof, Roundstone Rye – Cask Proof, and Watershed Gin.
“We are very glad to be expanding into new markets because of this Total Wine opportunity,” stated Scott Harris, founder and general manager of the Virginia distillery. “We’re very grateful to Total Wine, and super excited to launch into 2018 with a host of new states—some markets we’ve had our eyes on for a long time now.”
In March, Catoctin’s chief distiller and founder Becky Harris will be a featured guest of the Total Wine Livestream, where customers of 61 Total Wine stores across the country will have the opportunity to meet her, learn about Catoctin Creek products, and enjoy a tasting. She is being highlighted for her role as one of the few female chief distillers in the spirits industry.
“Over the past few years, we’ve significantly grown our barrel inventory,” said Becky Harris. “Along with the acquisition of the new warehouse space in 2017, we have been planning this expansion for quite some time now. Our improvements in production are now fully online, so we’re absolutely ready for this move into new states.”
