2019 Sponsor Tito's Handmade Vodka is America's original craft vodka. In the early 90s, Tito Beveridge began making vodka as gifts for friends. After being called the 'vodka guy' at a party one night, Tito got the idea to sell his vodka. Multiple attempts to sell his vodka to liquor stores led to one owner suggesting that if he may find success if he could make a vodka that was so smooth you could drink it straight. With no knowledge of distilling, he went to work researching old distilling techniques until he finally discovered a recipe that produced a vodka his friends liked. After multiple trials and testing agains top vodka brands, Tito's recipe continued to outdo the others. Still it took almost eight years for the company to find its legs. The corn-based, gluten-free vodka is now one of the top microdistilleries in the country and remains one of the purest spirits available.
