Listen to Episode 59: Catoctin Creek Distillery & Scott Harris”
This week’s Bit by a Fox Podcast episode is a great deep dive into what it’s like to start and run a successful micro distillery.
Catoctin Creek, a microdistillery in Purcellville, Virginia founded by husband and wife team, Becky and Scott Harris in 2009, is known for their award winning rye whiskies and their devoted cult following. On the cusp of their 10 year anniversary, I spoke with Scott about their journey into the distilling world, and their path to success over this past decade.
This week’s cocktail is Scott’s favorite Manhattan recipe…

1 oz Carpano Antica Sweet Vermouth
