George’s Beverage Company has partnered with Old Bay, a brand of McCormick & Company, to launch Old Bay Vodka. Crafted at McClintock Distilling in Frederick, Md., Old Bay Vodka is made from corn and distilled six times. The vodka highlights the flavor of the Old Bay spice blend. Fans will have one more way to enjoy the beloved taste of Old Bay, starting in this month. 

"The idea to collaborate to craft Old Bay Vodka made perfect sense from the start," says Greg David, co-owner, George’s Beverage Company. "We already had national distribution with top liquor distributors and a sustainable supply chain. The next step was identifying a local craft distillery that we could trust and that shared the same commitment to quality, craftmanship and sustainability, we found all this in McClintock Distilling." 

"Old Bay has been a fan-favorite for over 75 years in the Chesapeake Bay region and beyond," says Jill Pratt, chief marketing excellence officer, McCormick. "Our fans are loyal and passionate when it comes to all things Old Bay. We're thrilled to work with George's to bring the one-of-a-kind flavor of Old Bay to fans in entirely new, exciting, and innovative ways." 

McClintock Distilling, is a craft distillery located in Frederick, Md.  When approached about the opportunity to craft the first Old Bay Vodka, the McClintock team said, "absolutely" and built out a dedicated state-of-the-art facility for production.
