Sloop Betty @ Blackwater
May 25, 2014 by: Jim P from Stevensville, Maryland
Convenient off of Highway 50 on the way to the beach, we thought we would stop at Blackwater Distillery for a tour and tasting of locally made craft spirits. We enjoyed a fun and educational tour by the owners of Maryland's first craft Distillery in decades. The copper pot Still that will be making their Maryland Rye Whiskey this summer is a work of art and according to the guide, the first of its kind in the world because of its unique packing. The distillers shared their personal story as well as Maryland and Chesapeake history during the prohibition era and the history and industry of spirits in Maryland and Maryland Rye whiskey. After the tour, adult visitors got tastes of organic Sloop Betty Vodka and Sloop Betty Honey, which are locally sourced products and are very high quality Spirits made by a distiller with over a decade of experience. Both vodkas are smooth, tasty, and unique. We can't wait to taste the Rye whiskey on our next trip to Blackwater Distillery. It was a great educational and tasting experience.
