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.
