Tito’s Handmade Vodka makes UK bow
Published:  06 January, 2014

Tito’s Handmade Vodka, one of the pioneer products of the US’s craft vodka industry, will be available in the UK on and off-trade later this month through Hi-Spirits.

The Texas-based company produces vodka that is six-times pot-distilled and made from 100% corn, giving it a “sweeter, rounder flavour than vodkas made from wheat and potatoes", according to the UK distributor.

Tito’s has an ABV of 40%, with a RSP of £29.99 for a 70cl bottle in the UK.

Bert ‘Tito’ Beveridge, founder and master distiller of the vodka company said: “We are extremely excited to begin selling Tito’s Handmade Vodka in the UK. As a frequent visitor, I am also looking forward to the experience of enjoying a Tito’s cocktail in the UK after all these years! It’s a dynamic market, and we’re proud to partner with Hi-Spirits to expand our distribution there.”

Dan Bolton, managing director of Hi-Spirits, said: “Tito’s Handmade Vodka is an excellent fit with our existing portfolio of brands, offering a high quality spirit at an accessible price point. The entrepreneurial approach taken in the US is also an ideal match with our own approach to brand marketing and development.”
