Mentioned in Culture Trip – The Best Distilleries to Visit in Texas

August 28, 2020

San Luis Spirits, the makers of Dripping Springs vodka and gin, is located in Dripping Springs, Texas, in the Texas Hill Country, and offers some of the best vodka and gin in the state. Dripping Springs Vodka and Texas Orange Vodka are micro-distilled 20 times in small 50-gallon batches, then mixed with pure, mineral-rich artesian spring water from the Texas Hill Country before a final clarifying filtration through Swedish-activated charcoal. The Texas Orange Vodka is made with hand-zested Texas oranges, and after the oranges are zested, the actual fruit is donated to the Austin Zoo. Dripping Springs Artisan and Traditional gins are made in small 40-gallon batches and incorporate citrus from the Texas Rio Grande Valley and southwestern flavors. The on-site tasting room is open six days a week, and specialty cocktails are available on Saturdays. Tours are offered Thursday through Saturday and include a tasting and souvenir shot glass. Tour tickets must be purchased in advance and attendants must be 21 and up.
