Proof66 Notes

Mosby's Spirit is is a homage to the clear, un-aged grain spirits prevalent in the late 1800s in America. It's made from an organic rye grain base and then bottled... since it has no aging, it does not gain any color commonly associated with whiskey. We have opted to list it as an American whiskey despite the lack of aging--it could probably be classified as "moonshine" or "white lightning" or other terms, though the spirit is considered a premium expression (a substantial departure from the liquor commonly associated with those terms).

The name "Mosby" comes from John S Mosby--an American Civil War veteran of local heritage.

Mosby's Spirit received a Bronze Medal at the American Distilling Institute whiskey competition of 2011 and was "best in category" for un-aged rye whiskey.

Mosby's Spirit was awarded a Silver Medal at the 2010 New York International Spirits Competition.

In their 2011 review, the Beverage Testing Institute called Mobsy's a "gentleman's moonshine."

Mosby's Spirit was awarded a Bronze Medal in the 2010 American Distilling Institute Whiskey Competition.

Catoctin Creek Distillery was founded in 2009 by Scott and Becky Harris on principles of purity of ingredients, including 100% organic certification, which was obtained in May, 2010. The name comes from the Native American kittoctin translated as "place of many deer" and which lends its name to a local creek, which runs east to the Chesapeake Bay. Becky Harris has a background in chemical engineering and runs matters pertaining to their German-made copper column still. Scott Harris's first career was in information technology. In 2011, they were given a "Silver Certified" and given the Innovation Award by the 2011 Green Business Challenge. In 2012, they expanded to a new 300 gallon Kothe still and moved to a largre building in Purcellville, Virginia. This is a distillery we have visited personally!
