Tito’s Handmade Vodka is one of the fastest growing vodka brands in the US. Tito’s Handmade Vodka is sold in all 50 states, and it is manufactured in its home state of Texas in the same handcrafted manner as fine single malt scotch and high-end cognac.
To appropriately enjoy Tito’s Handmade Vodka is to understand its founder – Bert “Tito” Beveridge. Mr. Beveridge is a native Texan who studied Geology and Geophysics in college, yet found his true passion in making fine spirits. In the early 1990s, Tito was infusing vodka in his free time, while witnessing the growing trend of microbreweries. He predicted the spirits industry would follow the microbrewery trend, leading to the growth of microdistilleries.
In 1995, Tito hand-built a one-room distillery shack and fought to open the state of Texas’ first distillery. Soon after, without any formal training or investors, Tito’s Handmade Vodka was born.
Today, Tito’s Handmade Vodka is still made in small batches Austin, Texas. Each batch is micro-distilled six times in an old fashioned copper pot still. It’s a handcrafted product that has been recognized with the Unanimous Double Gold Medal from the World Spirits Competition. In the Competition, Tito’s beat out 72 other vodkas, including many established and more expensive brands.
The popularity of Tito’s has grown organically over the years due to a loyal and enthusiastic following and word-of-mouth.
True to the brand’s proud and humble roots, Tito’s Handmade Vodka is packaged in a modest bottle with a fine label printed on Mohawk Loop Smooth Ginger Wet Strength, 70 text.
“Mohawk is one of the “greenest" mills in the country. They really take a forward-thinking approach with the environment in conjunction with producing paper. They've been really great partners as the exclusive paper supplier for Tito's Handmade Vodka and take real pride in being a part of the growth of the brand. Mohawk is a service-oriented company that has quick reactions to any needs we have. From a production standpoint, it has been a pleasure working with them to make the Tito’s Handmade Vodka brand successful.”
