Show Us Your Tito's
We know we've been covering a lot of vodka lately, but we were in the liquor store today and the clerk found out about Liquor Snob and what we do, and would not stop gushing about this vodka we'd never heard of. At first, we were skeptical, because the words "vodka" and "they make it in Texas" escaped his lips. But, snobs we may be, we're always open to hear about a new entrant in our spirits world.
The drink that had our liquor purveyor in such a tizzy was Tito's Handmade Vodka, and he was right...it's made in the Lone Star State. In Austin, to be exact. Last we checked, that's about as far from traditional vodka territory as you can get. But the more of Tito's story we read, the more we're convinced...it just might be as good as people say.
There are a few things that make this stuff stand out for us. Won a double gold medal at the 2001 World Spirit Competition? Check. Industry mag Spirit Journal rates Tito's with 4 stars? Yup. Tito's last name is Beveridge? Got it. Tito's vodka is filtered an aggressive six times? You bet (remember our experience with M.H. Gordon's and the Gray Kangaroo? The more filtering, the better, if you ask us).
We wanted to read up on Tito's before we got a bottle, and now we're glad we did. You can learn more too by going to the Tito's site.
