Austin-based Deep Eddy Vodka announced plans to open a second distillery after it closed on the purchase of a 194,000-square-foot facility in Buda. Working in conjunction with its original distillery in Dripping Springs, the new distillery will allow for increased production capacity. The popular vodka purveyors are slated to ship 1 million cases this year, reported John Scarborough, President of Deep Eddy Vodka, in a press release. Together, however, the two facilities can produce more than 5 million cases per year.
Deep Eddy Vodka opened its Dripping Springs distillery just two years ago and have already outgrown it. That distillery will continue to produce vodka and its tasting room will remain open though enhancements are in the works including new amenities and added capacity to host special events such as live music shows. Distillery tours at the Dripping Springs facility are also available.
Deep Eddy Vodka will begin storing product immediately in the new Buda facility, and production will commence in spring of 2017.
The company's roster of popular spirits includes Deep Eddy Straight Vodka, Deep Eddy Sweet Tea Vodka, Deep Eddy Ruby Red, Deep Eddy Cranberry, Deep Eddy Lemon, and Deep Eddy Peach. Deep Eddy Vodka was sold last year to Kentucky-based Heaven Hill Brands.
