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.
