Blackwater Distilling Introduces Sloop Betty Caramel Vodka

STEVENSVILLE, MARYLAND (PRWEB) OCTOBER 30, 2016 — Blackwater Distilling™, Inc. (“Blackwater”), Maryland’s oldest and most awarded craft distillery, today announced the release of Sloop Betty Caramel Flavored Vodka, an all-natural caramel variant of the distillery’s award-winning Sloop Betty Vodka.


Inspired by the caramel and vanilla notes of aged whiskeys and the ever popular confection, Sloop Betty Caramel offers a perfect balance of sweet and smooth—infused with natural vanilla beans and sweetened with a house-made caramelized syrup for a natural, toasty flavor. Following the launch of Sloop Betty Honey, Sloop Betty Caramel is the second flavor in Blackwater’s line of craft premium vodkas. Sloop Betty Caramel possesses an elegant quality and a smooth finish, making it the perfect delight on the rocks or in a variety of mixed drinks.

“After five successful years with our signature Sloop Betty Vodka, we are excited to add Sloop Betty Caramel to our craft vodka line and to introduce this new, all-natural flavor combination that isn’t overly sweet like so many flavored vodkas,” said Blackwater Distilling’s CEO, Christopher Cook. “Blackwater Distilling is a pioneering brand obsessed with quality, innovation, and a love of the craft. We were the first craft distillery in Maryland, and we continue to lead by providing original, quality offerings to our fans,” added Cook.

Consumers will enjoy a toasty caramel flavor that plays well with chocolate, fresh apple cider and cranberry juices, as well as other fall and winter flavors—think chai tea and spices like cinnamon, cloves, ginger, and cardamom. Sloop Betty Caramel is smooth enough to sip on the rocks, with a slice of apple or orange.

Blackwater Distilling products, including its signature Sloop Betty Vodkas, Picaroon Rums, and limited-release whiskies are available to any licensed retailer in Maryland and the District of Columbia through Republic National Distributing Company (RNDC). Ask for them at your favorite bars, restaurants, and liquor stores!

Blackwater Distilling is located at 184 Log Canoe Circle in Stevensville, MD. The distillery is open for $5 tours and tastings seven days a week 12-5 p.m. Tours are on the hour with the last one beginning at 4 p.m. No appointments are necessary during open hours.
