Proof66 Notes

Deep Eddy Vodka is one of their flagship labels using all-Texas ingredient and water. It's from a base of corn-grain, which is a distinctly American style of vodka that we tend to associate with a light sweetness and mixing particularly well with fruit juices.

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."

I have wanted to try this vodka for a while given my affinity for that other Austin Vodka, Tito's. When I was checking out at the ABC store the other day I noticed they had these in 50ml bottles for $1 (15 of these make a 750ml bottle and saves you $5, by the way) so I picked up a few. I totally agree with derkerderr. Nothing special. Absolutely nothing to separate it from the crowded pack of ho-hum vodkas. I will continue to buy the 50ml bottles in case I need to "mix on the sly", but for the same price Tito's is the far superior product. I will give the flavored versions a try as they also stocked the 50ml's in those.

Another vodka that is drinkable but doesn't stand out as anything special.
