It might seem like Tito's Handmade Vodka popped up out of nowhere a few years ago, but we assure you that is not the case. It's been a labor of love for Tito Beveridge for almost three decades. For a while, he bounced between the oil-industry and mortgage gigs, giving homemade vodka to friends at Christmas. Once strangers started referring him to as “the vodka guy," he decided it was time to make a real go at it. After single-handedly building a distillery (and an enormous credit card bill), his vodka started its slow rise to prominence. Now it's regarded as one of the best vodkas in the world, with an incredibly smooth and clean taste that's perfect for sipping on its own or in cocktails.
