25 Years of the Tito’s Handmade Vodka

The story of Tito’s Handmade Vodka started with a dream to make a vodka so smooth you could drink it straight. With grit, determination, and a loyal dog by his side, Tito Beveridge took a risk on that dream. In 1997, he sold his first case of Tito’s Handmade Vodka.

“We bought every vodka that was on the shelf, tasted all of them and came up with the two best ones. When mine beat those two, then I figured that I had my formula right.“—Tito Beveridge

When Tito started to share his vodka, he did so with one request: If you like it, tell 20 of your closest friends. Twenty-five years later, Tito’s continues to create the same premium vodka while also trying to do good in communities near and far (with dogs still by their side).

Once a small operation in a 998-square-foot shack, Tito’s has grown into a brand synonymous with community impact, dog rescue, and the smoothest vodka around. Click here to learn more about the history of Tito’s, and try your next bottle in the Tito’s Shack Cherry Sour:
