Blackwater Distilling Tours

Blackwater Distilling, Maryland's oldest craft distillery, is now offering complimentary tours and tastings on weekends!  Fridays through Sundays, from 12-6pm, one can learn about the history of distilling in MD, the science and art of fermentation, and the differences in production processes between different spirits. After taking a tour, there's the reward of tasting Blackwater's multiple gold medal-winning Sloop Betty vodka and Sloop Betty Honey, and get a sneak peek at upcoming rum and rye whiskey products.

Each week there will be an infusion to taste, apple or blueberry pie, peach-ginger, other good stuff... Visitors will learn how to make naturally-flavored spirits and can take home a mason jar and a recipe kit to make their own infusions.

Sound good? Sounds great!

Blackwater Distilling is located at 184 Log Canoe Circle, Stevensville, MD 21666. Heading east on US-50, take the first exit after the Bay Bridge and turn left. Turn left at the next light onto Skipjack Road, and then left onto Log Canoe Circle. Blackwater Distilling is located in the second set of buildings on the right. Free parking is available. Blackwater is also located adjacent to Terrapin Beach Park, full of excellent walking and biking trails and a dog-friendly beach on the Chesapeake.
