Join the Smith Baltimore Alumni Club for an exclusive private event at the McCormick World of Flavors. The store is a 3,800-square-foot one-of-a-kind retail destination located in the Inner Harbor section of Baltimore. McCormick, which today is based in Sparks, Md., began in Baltimore in 1889, and for almost seven decades, until 1989, operated its factory and headquarters directly across the street from its new store.
Along with its spice brand, the store will feature other brands that McCormick owns, including Lawry’s, Old Bay, Zatarain’s and Thai Kitchen. There will also be exclusive products in the store to include flavored salsas, olive oils, vinegars, tapenades, and more. Products from McCormick Mexico, Canada, El Salvador, and France will be available for purchase.
McCormick’s new store in Baltimore features an open kitchen for cooking demonstrations, display cases with company memorabilia and interactive displays with touch-screen monitors including:
- Guess that Spice – smell a scent and earn discounts for correct answers
- FlavorPrint – get a personalized flavor profile
- Flavors in the Making – videos how spices and herbs are cultivated
The event includes a Spring themed food sampling, and all Alumni will receive a 15% discount at the store during the event.
