At Blackwater Distilling, vodka is more than a tasteless, odorless spirit – it’s a passion. Sloop Betty handcrafted vodka stands apart from other top shelf vodkas due to our unique combination of spirits distilled from organic wheat and organic cane sugar. Blackwater Distilling’s first product, Sloop Betty Vodka, was an instant success winning a Gold Medal for Best Vodka in Show at the New York Wine & Spirits Competition.
Sloop Betty’s organic wheat provides a complex base and hints of ripe berries on the nose and palate, while the sugar cane adds creamy vanilla notes and a slight residual sweetness for an unforgettably smooth finish.
Many of the large vodka brands will add smoothing agents like propylene glycol, a clear, tasteless and odorless compound with a slight residual sweetness that you might recognize from your car’s antifreeze. Not Betty. She’s all natural.
Sloop Betty Honey
We start with our multi-gold medal-winning Sloop Betty Vodka and blend in a touch of raw, unpasteurized orange blossom honey that we source from a local Maryland apiary. This sweet thing is our number one seller at the distillery store!
She’s not overly sweet and plays well with fresh citrus juices, herbs like rosemary and sage, and spices like cinnamon and cloves. Smooth enough to sip on the rocks with a twist of lemon or grapefruit and sweet enough to top a glass of iced tea.
Sloop Betty Caramel
Sloop Betty Caramel embodies our philosophy of using high-quality, natural ingredients. Our award-winning Sloop Betty Vodka is infused with carefully selected vanilla beans then sweetened with house-made caramelized syrup for a natural, toasty flavor that is perfect for fall and winter cocktails.
Not overly sweet, Sloop Betty Caramel plays well with chocolate, apple cider, apple and cranberry juices and other fall flavors. She is smooth enough to sip on the rocks but give it a try in hot apple cider with a dash of cinnamon for a warming treat.
Sloop Betty Professional
Designed with the professional and home mixologist in mind, Sloop Betty Professional Bartender’s Vodka is the same Gold Medal winning Sloop Betty Vodka, bottled at 120 proof rather than 80 proof.
Sloop Betty Professional is not only smooth and pure, it is the most economical of our line of Sloop Betty vodkas, sold in liter bottles made for infusing and entertaining.
