Hanover, MD, March 3, 2022 – GEORGE’S BEVERAGE COMPANY™️ has partnered with OLD BAY®, a brand of McCormick & Company, Inc. to launch OLD BAY® VODKA. Crafted at McClintock Distilling in Frederick, Md., OLD BAY® VODKA is made from corn and six times distilled for maximum purity and smoothness. The vodka perfectly highlights the quintessential flavor of the iconic OLD BAY® spice blend. Fans will have one more way to enjoy the beloved taste of OLD BAY®, starting in March 2022.

“The idea to collaborate to craft OLD BAY® VODKA made perfect sense from the start,” said 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,” said 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.”
