The birthplace of American Whisky was Virginia. Lansdowne Resort and Spa, A Destination Hotel, and Catoctin Creek Distilling are excited to release a private label rye whisky for the resort’s quintessential tavern and Leesburg, VA bar, Coton & Rye. This is the first legal batch of Virginia whisky made from grain grown in Loudoun County since Prohibition.
As a part of Lansdowne Resort and Spa’s overall celebration of the land, Coton farm and Virginia lifestyle, the team is working closely with local farmers, artisans, vintners and distillers to offer guests the opportunity to connect with the community in simple but meaningful ways while at the resort.
To make this connection to the local community deeper, the resort has selected a local batch of rye to produce their own private label rye whisky. The rye was grown at Morven Park through the historic estate’s farming co-op program. Trent Teebe, Proprietor of Three Monkeys Farm farmed the rye and provided it to Catoctin Creek, which became Barrel 609.
The Catoctin Creek 'Coton & Rye' Private Barrel Whisky is only available on the Coton & Rye menu. On your next visit to our Leesburg, VA bar, make sure to try our very own Virginia whisky, Barrel 609!
