If you’ve been in Lubbock long enough, you’re aware of all the great breweries and wineries. However, you might be like me and not know about Pinkerton’s Distillery. I just found out about them when a friend brought a bottle of their vodka over for a Christmas party. I gave it a try and was genuinely impressed.

They have been around since 2015 and started with their platinum rum. By 2016 they were picked up by Ranger Beverage to spread their rum across the Lone Star state.

Their vodka is made of 100% Texas corn, so I would say it is comparable to Titos. I will say, I prefer Pinkerton’s vodka over Titos. However, I’m not much of a vodka person in general, I tend to go for gin or rum. Knowing that Pinkerton’s also makes three different types of rum (gold, platinum, and coconut), I’m going to need to give them a try too at some point.

If you have a friend that is really into supporting local businesses, and likes cocktails, I think a bottle of their vodka or rum could make a great gift. You can buy their products at a bunch of different liquor stores in town including All Star, BJ’s, and Doc’s. Gifting a bottle alongside a mixer could make for the perfect last minute present.
