Craft sweet potato vodka -- distilled right behind the bar

Delta Dirt Distillery has a beautiful bar newly open to the public, but its spirits are crafted from sweet potatoes grown on a generations-old family farm.  This family-run, black-owned business is the first of its kind -- come "Sip & See" for yourself.

Yazoo Yaupon fans will appreciate the "Peach Pick" cocktail specially crafted to showcase the flavors of locally-grown yaupon tea, sweet potato vodka, and Southern peaches -- the perfect summer Delta drink.

"Sip & See" behind-the-scenes tours

"Sip & See" behind-the-scenes tours of the distillery and Williams family history are available Friday-Sunday and by appointment.

Saturday, May 22nd 3-6pm co-founder Harvey Williams is offering free tours at 3pm, 4pm, and 5pm.  No appointment necessary.  Grab a drink at the bar a few minutes beforehand and sip it on tour as you see how it was doesn't get more locally-crafted than this!

"Walk it off" afterward with a self-guided tour of downtown Helena's newest and coolest murals.  The Thrive Center is offering free maps that show you where to go and introduce you to the story behind each.
