Tito's Handmade Vodka is a traditional, corn-based vodka distilled in Austin, Texas, in Texas' oldest legal distillery. Made using old-fashioned methods inspired by the bootleggers of the prohibition era, Tito's Handmade Vodka is a throwback to old fashioned corn vodkas.
Each batch of Tito's Handmade Vodka is taste-tested by the small team working at the distillery to ensure that it meets their exacting standards. Even though Tito's Handmade Vodka is now available right across America and Canada, the team consists of just 18 people. They started off producing just 1000 cases a year in 1997, but since then, Tito's Handmade Vodka has exploded in popularity so that in 2007, they were selling more than 160,000 cases that year. And now, Tito's Handmade Vodka is coming to Europe, where it's available to purchase in our online shop.
Tito's Handmade Vodka is an award-winning vodka loved by critics and enthusiasts alike
Shortly after its launch, in 2001, Tito's Handmade Vodka was invited to enter into the San Francisco World Spirits Competition. The vodka was warmly received by the critics and they unanimously voted to award it a prestigious double gold medal. And the accolades didn't stop there: Later that same year, Tito's Handmade Vodka received a four-star ranking from the respected Spirit Journal. And recently, in 2013, Tito's Handmade Vodka became the exclusive vodka brand served on United Airlines flights.
The vodka distillery of Tito's Handmade Vodka in Austin was the first legal microdistillery to open in the state
When he wanted to open his first pot still for distilling vodka, the owner of Tito's Handmade Vodka, Tito Beveridge, had to fight through legal restrictions to be allowed to operate his fledgling one-man vodka production business. But eventually he was granted the first official license for a microdistillery in Texas - and when he opened his distillery for Tito's Handmade Vodka, it was the first new microdistillery in the US since Prohibition. It was the first in what is now a wave of microdistilleries popping up all over the country, following in the footsteps of Tito's Handmade Vodka.
Now the distillery in Austin still produces Tito's Handmade Vodka, and that original pot still has been joined by many more to meet the growing demand for this high-quality but affordable vodka. Tito's Handmade Vodka is distilled from corn, which makes for a uniquely American vodka experience. Corn vodka has a slightly sweeter finish than vodkas made from grain or potatoes, so Tito's Handmade Vodka takes advantage of this to produce a flavourful, distinctive vodka that's good enough to drink neat.
Although if you like cocktails rather than neat vodka, Tito's Handmade Vodka is a great fit for these too. It brings a delightfully sweet twist to classic cocktails like an American Mule (ginger beer, lime, and Tito's Handmade Vodka) or something flashy and fancy like an Austin Apple (apple brandy, apple juice, lemon juice, syrup, cider vinegar, and Tito's Handmade Vodka).
