NOW OPEN 7 DAYS A WEEK, 12pm-5pm, with tours kicking off on each hour through 4 p.m.
Come see how Sloop Betty vodka, Sloop Betty Honey, and Picaroon Maryland Rum are made! Located on Kent Island just after the Chesapeake Bay Bridge, Blackwater Distilling is the perfect jump-off point for a diversion on your way to your destination on the shore. You'll learn about the science and art of fermentation, distillation, and barrel aging (of our rum and upcoming whiskey), and you'll get to taste the full range of Blackwater Distilling products.
Tours are $5 and include a Blackwater Distilling shot glass to use for your tasting and to take home with you! There is no need to book a tour. Simply come to the distillery during our open hours of 12-5 p.m. for one of our tours kicking off on each hour through 4 p.m. Tours and tastings last approximately 45 minutes to an hour. All of our spirits are available for purchase, as well as distillery merchandise and a variety of mixers.
