Catoctin Creek Distilling Co. has reacquired the interest held in their Purcellville, Virginia-based business from Constellation Brands Ventures (CBV). Both Catoctin Creek and CBV agreed that now is the ideal time for the original owners to reclaim the CBV-owned share of the company in order to focus their full attention on craft innovation, new customer experiences and additional product lines. Its flagship rye whisky portfolio, including Roundstone Rye, Rabble Rouser Rye and Ragnarök Rye, will remain available for distribution, and the founders are excited to introduce new products, like the recently released Hot Honey Rye.
During this seven year relationship, CBV’s investment helped Catoctin Creek build substantial improvements, such as increasing production and warehouse capacity, improving supply chain efficiency, and expanding distribution in the U.S.
“We greatly appreciate the support and resources that CBV provided us during this time together,” remarked Scott Harris, founder and general manager, “and I am very excited about what the future holds.”
