Tito’s Handmade Vodka is produced in Austin at Texas’ oldest legal distillery. We make it in batches, use old-fashioned pot stills and taste-test every batch. Tito’s Handmade Vodka is designed to be savoured by spirit connoisseurs and everyday drinkers alike. Our process, similar to those used to make fine single malt scotches and high-end French cognacs, requires more skill and effort than others, but it's well worth it. The copper coloured finish on every bottle cap is our little nod to the distillation process.
In the early 1990s, Tito Beveridge (yes, that is his real name!) began experimenting with making flavoured vodka for friends as Christmas presents. One evening a stranger came up to him at a party and said, ‘Hey you’re the vodka guy’ and that got him thinking, this could be more than just a hobby. In 2007 Tito sold his first bottle of Tito’s Handmade Vodka and as the saying goes, the rest is history with it now available to purchase in over 125 countries across the world.
Whilst our story began in flavoured vodka, we now try to do one thing and do it really well, so we put all our energy into making the very best, original vodka out there. There are no special reserves, the vodka you drink, is the same vodka Tito, his family and friends all drink. It’s all special reserve and the recipe has never changed.
Made using corn harvested only from within the United States, Tito’s Handmade Vodka is certified Gluten-Free and offers a slightly sweet, peppery scent on the nose, it coats the palate with a creamy body and finishes smoothly, leaving a hint of sweet corn and spice. Tito’s Handmade Vodka works perfectly in a Texan Mule but tastes equally as good in any drink, be it a Bloody Mary, Vodka Martini or simply with lime and soda.
An important part of the story here at Tito’s Handmade Vodka is the innate connection we have with our canine counterparts. Since the beginning, as we have worked with Tito to bring his dream to life for over 20 years, we have been committed to rescuing and protecting the animals that have come into our lives, often serendipitously — many of whom now thrive alongside us at our distillery and our office. The vision of our Vodka for Dog People program is to unite with our friends, fans, and partners to better the lives of pets and their families far and wide. Tito’s Handmade Vodka is vodka for Dog People.
Crafted to be savoured responsibly.
