Tito's Handmade Vodka
Founded in In 1995, Tito Beveridge (yeah, his real name) had the idea of building his own micro distillery incorporating the boutique winery concept into the spirits industry. He acquired the first legal permit to distill in Texas and put his life savings into it, racking up 19 credit cards to build his own stills and condensers. Since then, he has won the World Spirits Competition and has turned his handmade vodka into the fastest growing spirit brand in the country through the power of word of mouth. Available in all 50 states now, people love to tell their friends about the underdog distiller named Tito who makes an exceptionally smooth vodka and sells it at a fair price. Tito still makes his vodka by hand on the same land where he started it all in Austin, Texas.
