Tito's Handmade Vodka Review

Tito's Handmade Vodka
80 Proof, Corn-based Texas Vodka
Typical Price: Under $20 for 750ml
Availability: Tito's is available in 40 states; check their website for availability in your state or buy it online

Big Tito's Vodka BottleInitial Thoughts: We've been big fans of all the vodkas we've reviewed so far, but there's something very special about this one. We're going to keep our review clean, simple and straight to the point, just like Tito's.

Cocktail Recipes: Tito's is the only vodka we've reviewed so far that we preferred straight; all we needed was a slight chill from the freezer. It was also tasty on the rocks, or mixed in drinks, but it just felt right to drink it on its own. There was very little nose, which is rare for vodkas, which in our experience tend to have at least a whiff of alcoholic tang.

As for the taste, it was straightforward and mostly prevalent on the front of the tongue, with of a woody or herbal back end. Very clean, very pure, very tasty. We suppose this is the advantage to distilling your liquor six times, and we finally understand why this stuff has been so lavished with praise from everyone who's tried it.

Finishing Thoughts:We're going to go out on a limb and say Tito's vodka is the smoothest we've ever tasted. That's not to say there's no better vodka out there, but between the taste and the price, which is an added bonus of a small company with low overhead and no importing costs, we're Tito's converts. We can't think of any reason, barring two broken legs and a restraining order from the liquor store, why we won't always have a bottle of Tito's in our cabinet.

Learn more about Tito's vodka, and by all means, go out and get a bottle of your own. Buy Tito's online at Internet Wines and Spirits.

I would like to know more about Tito's Vodka. How it was started, when, and by whom. Please Email me the story. C Boyd

I had my first Tito's experience at Lollapalooza in Chicago in 2005. Previous to that, I had only seen advertisements in the Wall St. Journal. When I finally tried it, I thought it was the best vodka I had ever had. I was also of the impression that it was difficult to purchase in Denver, Colorado. Fortunately, not the case. My local liquor store carried it. Now, I buy it all the time. Tito's far surpasses my previous Vodka of choice, Grey Goose. This stuff is the absolute best. My Father, Brother and I can polish a bottle of Tito's off in one sitting. We all love it! If you have the opportunity, try it, it is definitely a treat.

its corn based and gluten free. people with intestinal problems should drink this vodka...or if your allergic to glutens. try adding peppers of your choice 2 it and resting it for a year. awesome stuff.

makes a great fresh squeezed fl grapefruit salty dog.

Best vodka ever made...and I live in Austin, so I'm even more partial!!! Great job!

Tito's is not yet widely available, but I am spreading the news to as many people as possible.

I've taken bottles to family in California, Florida and Maryland, all of whom like premium Vodkas, like Belvedere, grey Goose ... etc. All agree with the overall smoothness of this product. I will be sending some bottles to friends in upstate New York whom should be very instrumental in spreading it around ...

BTW, I am not affiliated with Tito's in any way, other than being from Austin, I just like this product and want to share it with all y'all !!!

Don't drink and drive ...
