Experience Helena: Distillery Tours

Behind-the-scenes tours+stories at Delta Dirt in Helena, Arkansas

  • 30 minutes
  • Delta Dirt Distillery, Cherry Street, Helena

Description

Meet a new business with a deep history in downtown Helena, Arkansas. Delta Dirt Distillery is now open for tours -- and tasting! -- on Cherry Street downtown. This craft distillery and bar are a beautifully renovated, open space: come tour the distillery behind-the-scenes before it opens to the public, then lounge in the bar as long as you'd like. Delta Dirt is a family business founded by the son of an Arkansas sharecropper. Vodka is distilled from sweet potatoes grown locally on the Williams family farm -- now in its fourth generation. Delta Dirt is unique among American distilleries: they grow their own produce and grains in the same community where their fresh, authentic spirits are distilled. The tour is free to celebrate its opening month, but please consider buying booze or merch to say thanks and support small business. Delta Dirt has taken a 1% pledge, donating 1% of their sales to local education and community initiatives. Helena is only 30mins northwest of Clarksdale, or 20mins southwest of Tunica -- a 15min detour from Blues Highway 61, across the Mississippi River. Weren't already planning a stop in the Arkansas Delta? Best. Detour. Ever.
