Old Bay® Vodka Story
Hanover, MD, March 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.

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.”
