Expanding its line of vodkas made from real, premium ingredients, Deep Eddy Vodka–one of the fastest growing spirits brands in the country–introduces Lemon, a zesty lemon-infused vodka made with quality, all-natural flavors including real lemon juice and Texas aquifer water. Like all Deep Eddy Vodka spirits, Lemon is gluten-free and is handcrafted in small batches in the Deep Eddy Vodka distillery located just outside of Austin, TX. Lemon will hit shelves beginning January 2015.
“Citrus and lemon have been leading flavors within the vodka category for many years. We are excited to bring a ‘fresh’ spin on a very traditional and proven flavor. The addition of Lemon to the Deep Eddy brand will continue to round out our flavor portfolio,” explains Deep Eddy Vodka CEO Eric Dopkins. He talks about the company’s growth, saying, “2015 will be a very exciting year for Deep Eddy as we anticipate continued national distribution development and annualized volume between 600,000-700,000 9L cases. Deep Eddy Vodka’s projected 2014 finish is nearing 400,000 9-Liter cases.”
Lemon is free of artificial flavors and high-fructose corn syrup, and it can be served on the rocks or mixed with infinite other ingredients to create something more complex. Consumers can find Lemon in five sizes: 50 ml, 375ml, 750 ml, 1 liter and 1.75 liter.
Officially making a splash after the New Year, Lemon will be available nationwide in all fifty states beginning January 2015. Throughout the month of December 2014, Lemon will be available for sale at the new Deep Eddy Vodka distillery. The distillery is located at 2250 E. U.S. Highway 290 in Dripping Springs, Texas, just twenty-five miles west of Austin. The distillery is open to the public on weekends for tours and tastings: Friday and Saturday 11:00 a.m.- 5:00 p.m. and Sunday 12:00 p.m.- 5:00 p.m.
This is the first new flavor to launch since the opening of the new, 30,000-square-foot Deep Eddy Vodka distillery in Dripping Springs, Texas. Lemon is created using Deep Eddy Vodka’s signature column distillation process, during which vodka is distilled ten times in a state-of-the-art twenty-foot column still to remove impurities and create a smooth finish. This sustainable distillation process creates zero waste. Lemon is also filtered over charcoal slowly and gently in order to preserve subtle flavors during the filtration process. The result is a smooth and clean taste.
