Old Bay Vodka, a collaboration between George’s Beverage Company, McClintock Distilling and spice maker McCormick, is slated to hit liquor store shelves and bar displays later this month.
The vodka is made from corn and distilled six times at McClintock “for maximum purity and smoothness,” the companies say on the Website dedicated to spirits.
