About Tito's Handmade Vodka

Founded in 1997, Bert "Tito" Beveridge, now a 40-something geophysicist, obtained the first legal permit to distill in Texas and created Tito's Handmade Vodka. Tito distills his corn-based vodka 6 times in old-fashioned pot stills, the first of which he built himself. Tito's Handmade Vodka has gone on to win the prestigious Double Gold Unanimous Judge's Choice at the San Francisco World Spirits Competition and continues to receive critical acclaim for its impeccably pure taste, affordability, and brand growth.
