Best Tasting Spirits Review for Dripping Springs Vodka

Dripping Springs vodka was created by brothers Gary and Kevin Kelleher.  It was introduced in 2007.  It is micro-distilled over 20 times in small 50 gallon batches in proprietary handmade copper pot stills with sweet Mid-Western non-GMO corn and pure mineral-rich artesian spring water.  It is then slow filtered through Swedish activated carbon before bottling at 80 proof. The aroma has notes of corn and vanilla with an alcohol backing.  In my mouth, the feel is soft and creamy.  The lush milky flavored entry is joined by subtle fresh corn building to a creamy natural vanilla peak.  It fades with a mild sting, a little heat, and a hint of charcoal taste on the silky finish.  This is a vodka smooth enough to sip on the rocks, with a flavor that will enhance, instead of distract from your favorite cocktail.

Vodkaphiles Dripping Springs Vodka Reviews

I’m a veteran vodka drinker and a bartender at a resort in Texas. When I first tried Dripping Springs I was pleasantly surprised at the crystal clear taste and the long smooth finish. There’s a hint of sweetness and you can also taste a trace of the mineral-rich Texas Hill Country spring water that they use to hand craft this vodka. It’s micro-distilled 20 times in small proprietary copper stills and then filtered through charcoal. The best martini I’ve ever had! No vermouth needed.

I’m frankly not much of a vodka connoisseur although I can appreciate Grey Goose, Stoli, ketel one, etc. but they just don’t fit into my budget so I buy Taaka (cough). Recently, I read about Dripping Springs from a note on the shelf. I had to try it. I added no vermouth, no olive juice, no olives just shook it up with ice and poured it. I can see why it scooped the aforementioned vodka’s. I’ve been bragging about it ever since and now its my brand regardless of cost.

BF World – George’s Rants & Raves: Dripping Springs Vodka

Vodka from Texas? Is there any place left on the planet where vodka is not distilled? When I think of Vodka, Poland and Russia rush to the forefront of my mind. Texas doesn’t even appear on the horizon. When I think of Texas I think of hot muggy days, wide open prairies, George W Bush, the Dallas Cowboy’s cheerleaders, and fire ants – and not necessarily in that order. Lately, I have tried vodka from Iceland and Dayton, Ohio so I guess anything is possible.

There is definitely a movement a feet. That’s right, I meant to say feet not foot. It’s difficult to have movement with only one foot. Movement with one foot usually consists of move the foot, fall down. So what’s this movement? It’s the movement of vodka toward the affordable luxury category also known as bargain super premiums. Dripping Springs Vodka is an excellent case in point.

Dripping Springs mention in LostInAustin – BEST AUSTIN DISTILLERIES

Dripping Springs Distilling’s award-winning vodka is what first put them on the map back in 2007 and 2008. Made in 50-gallon copper pot stills, their small-batch vodka is fresh and neutral, great on its own or in cocktails.

Gin was next on the agenda, which was soon winning its own award categories. The vodka and gin are still made onsite in Dripping Springs. But the distillery has now acquired several small-batch liquor brands like 1876 Bourbon, Republic Whiskey, and Paula’s Liqueur. Stop by their tasting room for seasonal cocktails or tastes of their vodkas, gins, and bourbons.
