KO Distilling

KO Distilling is a craft distillery located in Manassas, Virginia. Co-Founders Bill Karlson and John O’Mara (the “K” and “O” in KO) met at the US Merchant Marine Academy. Both were Navy Reservists, had successful careers, and retired early. Neither being content to sit idle, in 2013 KO Distilling began its journey to create craft spirits with local ingredients and high-quality methods. Bill and John’s backgrounds in engineering inspired advanced distilling processes. Their passion for great spirits continues to drive attention to detail and quality.

Catoctin Creek

Catoctin Creek® was founded by Becky and Scott Harris in 2009 as the first legal distillery in Loudoun County since before Prohibition. We are located in Purcellville, Virginia, in the heart of the Loudoun Valley. Virginia is the birthplace of American whiskey, and at Catoctin Creek, we faithfully dedicate ourselves to that tradition, producing Virginia’s most awarded whisky—Roundstone Rye!

At Catoctin Creek, we believe in high-quality food and spirits. We source our grain and fruit from local sources, free of pesticides and chemical additives that would come through in the spirits we produce. The results are the finest, cleanest spirits possible, with the greatest attention to detail in every single bottle we produce.

Virginia Distillery Company

The late Dr. George G. Moore had a great passion for single malt whisky and his adopted home in Virginia. A native Irishman, George came to the U.S. in the 1970s seeking new opportunities. In 2011, having built successful businesses in both the U.S. and Ireland, George finally had the chance to combine his two passions and started Virginia Distillery Company. Today, George’s wife, Angela, and their son, Gareth, along with his wife, Maggie, have taken the helm to continue building George’s dream. At Virginia Distillery Company, we carry George’s legacy forward by reinventing American Single Malt whisky. Every barrel is a culmination of the world’s finest distilling, aged to perfection in the ideal climate of Virginia’s Blue Ridge Mountains.
