In 2005, the Kelleher brothers built the first distillery in the Texas Hill Country and in 2007, sold their first bottle of Dripping Springs Vodka. The company launched Dripping Springs Gin, Well No. 1876 Vodka and 1876 Bourbon in the early 2010s, and the venture became Dripping Springs Distilling in 2018, when the company acquired Paula’s Texas Spirits, Republic Whiskey, Republic Tequila, Pepe Zevada ‘Z’ Tequila, Martine Honeysuckle Liqueur, Republic Spirit Blends, and Republic Bloody Mary Mix.
In August 2021, Dripping Springs Distilling opened Distillers Bar and Distillers Hall at Dripping Springs Distilling. Distillers Bar offers tours, tastings, cocktails, elevated comfort food, and our Bottle Shop, and Distillers Hall is our wedding and special events venue!

Handcrafted without compromise, Dripping Springs Vodka and Dripping Springs Orange Vodka are micro-distilled 20 times in copper pot stills in small 50-gallon batches. They are then mixed with pure, mineral-rich artesian spring water from the Texas Hill Country before a final clarifying, slow filtration through Swedish activated charcoal. Dripping Springs Vodka is lush and balanced with a smooth finish.
Dripping Springs Orange Vodka is infused with oranges we hand zest here at the distillery, for an all natural orange flavor.
Dripping Springs Gins are made in small 40-gallon batches in our proprietary copper pot stills. Each batch is designed to capture the essence of our nine botanical mix with an optimal 40% Distiller’s cut, and are finished with pure, Hill Country Artesian Spring Water.
Dripping Springs Artisan Gin is an approachable, lower proof (85 proof) spirit made with a delicate combination of soft floral notes, a hint of spice, and fresh citrus from the Texas Rio Grande Valley.
Dripping Springs Traditional Gin is a juniper-forward London dry gin, reinvented with southwestern flavors. It is 95 proof and designed for Traditional Gin lovers who enjoy a richer citrus and juniper palate.
1876 Texas Bourbon is distilled, barreled and bottled in Texas using 80% yellow #2 Texas corn and 20% Secale Cereale Oklahoma winter rye. This blend is triple distilled and aged for 3-5 years in new, white American oak then refined down to 85 proof with our signature Hill Country Artesian Spring Water. The end result is a rich and balanced Bourbon with flavors of rye toast, caramel and vanilla with just a hint of smoke.
Our 1876 Port Barrel Finish Bourbon starts with our 3-5 year aged 1876 Texas Straight Bourbon at cask strength. It undergoes a second barrel aging process for 8 weeks in select port wine barrels that we secure from the Napa Valley region of California and is finished with our Artesian Spring Water. The result is an incredibly smooth bourbon that is perfect for sipping neat, on the rocks.
Republic Bloody Mary Mix is simply made with real ingredients. Designed from a classic, house-made bar recipe, Republic Bloody Mary Mix is the perfect addition to any Bloody Mary, Bloody Maria, Brown Mary, or Michelada!
Republic Bloody Mary Mix is tomato forward, with the perfect blend of citrus and spices and just a touch of heat.
Republic Spirit Blends is a line of mixers that mix well with tequila and many other spirits, sparkling water, wine, and beer. Made in Texas with nine unique flavors inspired by our great state. Made from real ingredients and sweetened with organic agave nectar and pure cane sugar, these mixers are sure to shake up your spirit!
