The Fainting Goat’s Women’s History Month Cocktail Takeover with Catoctin Creek

March 23, 2023 @ 6:00 PM – 9:00 PM
Fainting Goat Tavern
1330 U Street NW Washington
DC 20001

In celebration of Women’s History Month, U Street neighborhood tavern Fainting Goat and local VA craft distillery Catoctin Creek are coming together for a night of spirits tastings, specialty cocktails, raffle prizes, and a good cause.

On Thursday, March 23 from 6-9pm, they’re hosting a cocktail takeover featuring drinks created by some of the talented women behind the Goat’s bar, and $1 from each cocktail sold will be donated to the StepUp Foundation.

Cocktails will include bartender Toni Margai’s “Tropical Oasis” with Catoctin Rye, peach, falernum and lemon juice. Guests can also enjoy complimentary tastings of several spirits from Catoctin Creek, the first legal distillery in Loudoun County since before Prohibition, located in nearby Purcellville, Virginia. The award-winning craft distillery produces a variety of rye whiskeys made from local and organic grains, gins and fruit brandies.

In addition to the $1 per cocktail Fainting Goat will be donating for the evening, Catoctin Creek will also be donating $1 per cocktail posted on social media (tagging @catoctincreek with the hashtag #sipforequality). StepUp is a foundation who empowers women and underrepresented people by providing opportunities to enter the spirits community through a comprehensive internship program.

And attendees can go home with swag, as Catoctin Creek gives away raffle prizes throughout the night.

The Fainting Goat’s Women’s History Month Cocktail Takeover with Catoctin Creek is free to attend and open to the public. For more information, please visit, follow them on Instagram at @faintinggoatdc.
