Catoctin Creek, a microdistillery in Purcellville, Virginia founded by husband and wife team, Becky and Scott Harris in 2009, is known for their award winning rye whiskies and their devoted cult following. On the cusp of their 10 year anniversary, I spoke with Scott about their journey into the distilling world, and their path to success over this past decade. 
 
This week's cocktail recipe is Scott's favorite Manhattan recipe:

Catoctin Creek Manhattan
2 oz Catoctin Creek 92 Proof Distillers Edition Roundstone Rye
1 oz Carpano Antica Sweet Vermouth
1 dash aromatic bitters or another of your favorites
1 tsp Maraschino cherry juice
Maraschino cherry for garnish
 
Pour all ingredients into a mixing glass with ice. Stir until chilled. Strain into a cocktail glass and garnish.
