Featured InterviewSloop Betty Vodka, Maryland
SLOOP BETTY is a hand crafted wheat vodka made in Maryland. Smooth, with a crisp undertone, the pure, natural ingredients of a small batch vodka come through as you savor every delicious drop. Designed with both vodka connoisseurs and those new to the pleasure of the cocktail hour, Sloop Betty can be enjoyed alone or mixed in a drink. Blackwater Distilling is working with the Maryland Organic Certification Program to obtain recognition from the state as an official organic handler, so you can be sure of Betty’s purity—plus, she’s certified kosher.
