Dripping Springs Distilling

Dripping Springs Distilling is committed to producing world-class spirits in small batches, focusing on quality ingredients and a refined taste profile. They believe there’s real value in not rushing things, and this appreciation for the unhurried is reflected in the creation of their craft spirits, deliberately made in small 50-gallon batches using 18 copper stills to ensure smooth sipping perfection every time. They take their time so you can enjoy yours.

Their unique process has led to coveted awards like being the only North American Vodka to win the Vodka Purity Trophy at the IWSC and their Artisan Lemon Vodka’s 2023 Double Gold Medal at the SFWSC. And they’re not only home to award-winning vodkas, gins, and bourbons. In 2023, Dripping Springs voted their tasting room Best Distillery, Best Happy Hour, and Best Place to Host a Work Event. They also made Yelp Austin’s Top Places to Drink list for 2023.

The distillery’s tasting room and event venue opened in the summer of 2021, and just like their spirits, the cocktails and food are hand-crafted with natural ingredients, intention, and purpose. They are passionate about offering fresh, trendy, seasonal menus while providing enthusiastic Texas Southern hospitality. Guests can get a behind-the-scenes look into their production process by taking a distillery tour that concludes with a tasting of their handcrafted spirits, including any tasting room exclusive releases available at the time, like their Artisan Lavender Vodka and Speakeasy Gin. They offer happy hour on Thursdays and Fridays, featuring discounted draft cocktails and select food items, and brunch and live music in their oak grove on the weekends. If you haven’t visited Dripping Springs Distilling yet, they invite you and your family (four-legged family members are also welcome) to grab a cocktail and enjoy a day in the Texas Hill Country.
