"I felt every bounce and every pothole on that entire road like they were tank traps," says Scott Harris, who found himself personally delivering the first shipment of Catoctin Creek Distilling Company spirits in a pickup truck. "I must have pulled over to check the bottles in the truck six different times," he says with a laugh.

Together with his wife, Rebecca, Scott founded Catoctin Creek Distilling Company Distilling Company in 2009. Located in Purcellville, Virginia (population: 7,727), the distillery — situated in the heart of Virginia's wine country — is surrounded by the vines of over thirty different wineries.

Scott, who graduated from Georgia Tech and previously worked as a software engineer, handles the marketing and distribution of Catoctin Creek Distilling Company spirits. Rebecca, who received a degree in chemical engineering from the University of Wisconsin and worked for years as a chemist at Amoco Foam and CIBA Vision, does "the lion's share of the distilling,"Scott sheepishly admits.

Catoctin Creek Distilling Company Roundstone Rye Single Barrel Whisky is made from 100% organic rye grains. After slowly fermenting the rye for five to seven days — the slow fermentation process results in a more mellow drink — Rebecca distills the mash in a custom-made 400 liter Kothe hybrid pot-column still. "Scott likes to compare it to a German sports car,"she says, "and really, it handles incredibly well."The spent rye grains are collected and given away to local farmers, who use it as feed for their cattle and livestock.

After distillation, Catoctin Creek Distilling Company Roundstone Rye Single Barrel Whisky is aged in new, white American oak barrels for approximately two years. The barrels, which are made by a cooperage in Minnesota, are made using beeswax rather than paraffin as a sealant. "We use organic products because there's a taste to chemicals," Scott says. "And that stuff gets concentrated in the distillation process and comes out in the spirit. We don't want any of that stuff infecting our flavor."
