A Legacy of Innovation

Founded in 2017, Delta Dirt Distillery officially opened its doors in April 2021, marking the beginning of a journey steeped in tradition and fueled by innovation. Nestled in the historic downtown of Helena, Arkansas, the distillery’s roots run deep in the Delta region, where the rich soil and family heritage converge to create something truly special.

Delta Dirt Distillery distinguishes itself by daring to venture where few have gone before – crafting vodka from sweet potatoes. This unconventional approach to distillation sets the brand apart in an industry dominated by tradition. Embracing its heritage and pioneering spirit, Delta Dirt Distillery proudly stands as the only Black-owned farm-to-bottle distillery in America.

At the heart of Delta Dirt Distillery’s offerings lies Sweet Blend Vodka, a testament to the brand’s commitment to quality and innovation. Distilled from farm-raised sweet potatoes, this unique spirit offers a versatility that captivates both connoisseurs and casual drinkers alike. Whether enjoyed neat, on the rocks, or mixed into creative cocktails, Sweet Blend Vodka reels consumers in with its subtle sweetness and complex aroma.

Within just one year of operation, Delta Dirt Distillery achieved a remarkable feat: earning a Double Gold award for their Sweet Blend Vodka. This prestigious accolade not only acknowledges the brand’s dedication to excellence but also affirms its position as a leader in the spirits industry. With each sip of Sweet Blend Vodka, consumers can taste the uncompromising commitment to quality and craftsmanship that The Tasting Alliance judges noted through our competitions.

Their latest venture, ‘Arkansas Brown,’ offers a glimpse into the future of craft distillation.

For Delta Dirt Distillery, being a Black-owned spirits brand is not just about representation – it’s about legacy and community.
