Delta Dirt Distillery, a family-owned craft distillery located in historic Helena, opened its doors officially in April 2021, featuring their original sweet potato vodka. Their motto was, and remains, to “Raise Spirits in the Delta.” In 2022, Delta Dirt unveiled their new Tall Cotton Gin. Soon, they'll offer Delta Blues Bourbon. In a mere two years, Delta Dirt Distillery is becoming known across the nation for their vodka and gin.

Owned by Donna and Harvey Williams, Delta Dirt is a family business. Their son Thomas is the master distiller. The vodka and gin are made from produce and grains grown on the four-generation family farm located in Phillips County. To read more about the family farm, check out this article from Modern Farmer.
