Vodka originated in chilly climes- Russia, Poland, and Sweden. This concoction of fermented cereal grains (and later potatoes, brought back from the New World) was traditionally consumed, "neat", that is, without ice or any other additions.

Despite its frosty and simple origins, we here in Texas know that vodka's cool and clean character also makes it the perfect spirit for hot summer nights- spent on Texas patios, next to grills, or from the comfort of your favorite bar stool.


Vodka is a wonderful cocktail spirit, delicious in vodka martinis, Bloody Marys, Cape Cods, and mules- all perfect for quenching your Texas thirst.

Texas makes many fine vodkas- both crisp originals and delicious flavors, inspired by our beautiful and majestic state.

Here is a look at some of the best Texas-made vodkas available.
