    Catoctin Creek Distilling Company

    Aspire Engineering recently completed the design for Catoctin Creek Distilling Company's new location in downtown Purcellville, Virginia. Founded in 2009, Catoctin Creek is the first legal distillery in Loudoun County since Prohibition. Their existing facility is a one-still operation tucked away in an industrial complex in Purcellville.

    The existing production equipment

    The new distillery will be located on Main Street in downtown Purcellville in brick building built in 1921, incidentally just at the start of Prohibition. Originally built as a car dealership, the building still has large streetfront windows which will showcase the distillery equipment and the tasting room.

    The new building before renovations

    At approximately 6,400 sf the new building will house the existing mash tank and 100 gallon still plus a new 300 gallon still and allow room for expansion in the future. Two rooms classified as high hazard storage will store barrels for aging of their products. A 1,400 sf tasting room will be located at the front of the building with seating for about 25 people. The tasting room will have windows overlooking the manufacturing area, allowing visitors to see operations while sampling spirits.

    The new still being built in Germany

    Engineering services included design of a new HVAC system and distribution, design of plumbing for public areas and service to production equipment, design of sprinkler systems for high hazard storage areas, working with the architect to design lighting in the tasting room and manufacturing areas, and design of electrical systems including a service upgrade.
