Austin-based Deep Eddy Vodka is poised to expand in a big way. The popular vodka purveyors are working on a new distillery and tap room — or, as they refer to it, a "day drinking shrine" — located near Dripping Springs, an area that's becoming something of a mini-Napa for booze enthusiasts: As CultureMap points out, "Jester King Brewery, Argus Cidery, Revolution Spirits distillery and the new Treaty Oak Distillery are all located nearby." Founder Clayton Christopher told KXAN last month that he hopes the distillery and tap room will attract both locals and tourists alike; look for the tasting room to celebrate its grand opening in October.
