Proof66 Notes

Deep Eddy Sweet Tea vodka is their Texas version of the popular flavored vodka. The black tea is the one exception to Texas-made ingredients coming from Indonesia.

Deep Eddy vodka is was founded in 2010 in Austin, Texas by Clayton Christopher in collaboration with Chad Auler of Savvy Distillers. They use local and all-natural products in their production and blend it with aquifer water from Texas. The name "deep eddy" is inspired by the "largest swimming hole" in the Austin, Texas area. According to the 2011 filing with the Tax and Trade Bureau, Deep Eddy is produced by Savvy Spirits out of Texas, whom we've listed here as the producer. Driven by early success, the facility has expanded to a 4-acre, 35,000 square foot facility capable of producing 2 million cases per year. In the interview with Tasting Panel Magazine (November, 2014 by Anthony Head), Auler remains committed to Austin and using "real ingredients" in their flavors. In August, 2015, the Deep Eddy brand was sold to Kentucky-based Heaven Hill. According to the Wall Street Journal (Tripp Mickle), the sale price was not disclosed but estimated between $165 and $300 million. In the article, Heaven Hill said that Deep Eddy would 'operate as an independent company within Heaven Hill and continue to be overseen by its current president, Eric Dopkins."

Yeah, it tastes just like sweet tea and vodka. Good alone or mixed with a little sweet tea or lemonade. My big complaint was that after drinking much of it, i started to feel nauseated. Not nauseated from drunkenness, but just the overwhelming lemon tea flavor. Still not bad though for the price.

I tried Deep Eddy for the first time last weekend and I don't think I can bring myself to go back to drinking anything else...

The only sweet tea vodka I've tasted that tasted like brewed tea instead of powdered. Their tea advisor is the gentleman who founded Sweet Leaf Tea, so that probably has something to do with it. Great mixed with carbonated lemonade.
