Catoctin Creek BINGO!

For the rest of 2020...

Catoctin Creek is happy to announce, Catoctin Creek BINGO!  Whether you live in the District or in Virginia, we have a game for you!  Get your own personal bingo card, and then, visit as many of the establishments on your card as you can.  Each time you visit, order a Catoctin Creek drink from the bar (or carry-out, as the case may be), and you'll get a stamp on your card.  Get five stamps in a row (just like in bingo), and you will win a free branded t-shirt or hat.  Fill up the entire card, and we'll give you a really sweet Catoctin Creek branded hoodie!

You can download and print out your card below, or pick one up in person at the distillery or at participating restaurants and bars!  You are free to play both a DC card and a Virginia card at the same time.

Must be 21 years old to play. Valid only with approved stamps. One card per person, please.

Art of the Cocktail Class – 2nd time, we're still ONLINE!

7:00pm—9:00pm

Catoctin Creek is pleased to present, our SEVENTH year of this six-part educational series on the art of the cocktail. We must still hunker down, as this pandemic isn't over yet.  Thus, the classes will still be online via Zoom.  Each week, we will send out a shopping list of items for you to pick up, plus the course materials.  Then, every Friday night, get yourself comfortably placed behind your bar, with your computer on and ready to go, and we will enjoy the class interactively just as if we were together in person.

This year, we're focusing on WACKY and WEIRD ingredients! Things you wouldn't normally make cocktails with, but can find around the pantry. So BUCKLE UP, baby! This is going to be fun!

Here is the schedule of the series:

  • January 8 - Cocktails using jams and jellies (Must be jelly, 'cuz jam don't shake like that!)
  • January 15 - Cocktails using chili peppers (not the rock band)
  • January 22 - Cocktails using beans (yes, beans! The Musical Fruit!)
  • January 29 - Cocktails using salt (savory and not savory drinks!)
  • February 5 - Cocktails using vegetables (drink your vegetables! They're good for you!)
  • February 12 - Cocktails using store-bought candy (Don't tell my dentist!)

Ingredients will be easy to obtain, and the lessons will be fun as ever.  This will be via Zoom, so I still expect lots of interaction and questions and good times.  It's a drinks class, after all!  As I mention in many of my classes, this class will be equal parts, cocktail how-to, history, and fun.

Tickets are ONLY $10 per person for the lessons, which leaves you room to purchase the ingredients.  You can purchase our spirits in our online store.

Catoctin Creek Virtual Portfolio Tasting!

Jan 14, 8:30pm EST (originally Dec. 3, but now rescheduled)

Join us on Thursday, January 14, 8:30pm EST, for an immersive virtual tasting of the entire Roundstone Rye product line (80 proof, 92 proof Distiller's Edition, and cask proof).

In collaboration with The Crafty Cask: Grab our great 3-pack mini bottle sample pack to sip along on all three spirits. Or, grab full size bottles of any or all three to stock up for the upcoming winter. During the session, we'll hear straight from the maker about the history of rye, these three unique and delicious whiskies, taste through them and teach some tasting techniques. Learn about the Catoctin Creek story, and discuss fun ways to use all three featured spirits in cocktails.

Order your spirits at least 7-10 days in advance to get them in time for the event. And remember, if you grab a bottle from the featured vendor, your ticket fee to the event is fully refunded!
