Blackwater Distilling™

Blackwater Distilling™ On Feb. 15, the Eastern Shore-based BlackWater Distilling, Inc. became Maryland's first licensed beverage alcohol distillery in nearly 30 years. Founded by brothers Christopher and Jonathan Cook of Annapolis, the micro-distillery will use locally-grown grain to produce its inaugural vodka line, available later this year. More super-premium products, including a gin and whiskey, are planned for future release. BlackWater Distilling will initially distribute its liquors throughout Maryland, with increasing coverage as production capacity expands.

  BlackWater Distilling Vodka
BlackWater Distilling’s vodka is primarily made with wheat, an abundant resource on Maryland’s Eastern Shore. The grain is ground coarsely, processed into a wort and yeast is added to begin the fermentation process. Fermentation is the only process which creates alcohol, regardless of the beverage alcohol being produced. Distilling is simply a process of selecting chemical compounds out of a solution based on the temperature at which different liquids turn into a vapor.
