HOW IT’S MADE: AWARD-WINNING SPIRITS EDITION

Dripping Springs Artisan Gin
 

Our Dripping Springs Artisan Gin and Traditional Gin begin with a hand-selected, nine botanical blend that consists of different ratios of juniper, florals, spices, and hand-zested citrus. We steep our gin in the botanical blend for four days before running it through our small, copper pot stills a second time. Our distillers then pull the purest form of the gin from the heart of that 40-gallon batch and finish it with our signature mineral-rich, Hill Country spring water.

Paula's Process
Paula’s Liqueur

Our Paula’s Orange, Lemon, and Grapefruit Liqueurs are infused with real citrus that our distillers take off the fruit by hand. They are made from an all corn-spirit, sweetened with pure cane sugar, and finished with Texas Hill Country rainwater. Each flavor is all-natural and gluten-free. Add 1/2 oz of your favorite of these three citrus flavors to champagne or add 1 oz to your favorite pilsner or blonde ale for a Texas twist on a summer shandy.
