Deep Eddy Vodka Distillery

From EverybodyWiki Bios & Wiki


Deep Eddy Vodka Distillery is a distillery in Dripping Springs, Texas that manufactures vodka products made of south Texas corn using continuous distillation in a column still.[1] Dripping Springs is not a part of Austin, Texas, but is, in fact, a separate town.

Deep Eddy Vodka is named after the Deep Eddy Pool in Austin, the oldest spring fed swimming pool in Texas.[2]

Heaven Hill Brands, the privately held owner of Evan Williams, Elijah Craig, and many other Bourbons and spirits acquired Deep Eddy Vodka in August 2015.[3] It continues to operate as an independent company under the Heaven Hill ownership.

Claims regarding use of perfect spring water from an aquifer in Texas[edit]

Deep Eddy Vodka claims to use only spring water coming from an unnamed Texas aquifer: "We use the finest water in Texas from an aquifer deep beneath the Earth. It’s as perfect as water gets." Deep Eddy Pool, for which the vodka is named, is immediately adjacent to the Colorado River and derives its water from a 35-foot hand dug well next to the Colorado, which produces cold spring water. That water is not sold for commercial purposes. The Edwards Aquifer, the aquifer that feeds a different spring fed pool in Austin called Barton Springs, is not the source of the water that fills Deep Eddy Pool. Barton Springs Pool has been closed a number of times since the 1980s due to fecal coliform bacteria entering the Edwards Aquifer Recharge Zone. Barton Creek drains directly into the Colorado River. Austin derives its drinking water from three water treatment plants that take water from the Colorado River. The Edwards Aquifer derives water from many sources, the vast majority off which are not related to springs, including run-off from the aforementioned Edwards Aquifer Recharge Zone. This aquifer is considered a surface aquifer and is not "deep beneath the Earth," as stated on the Deep Eddy Vodka website. At its deepest point, the Edwards Aquifer is only 700 feet deep. The Edwards Aquifer flows beneath 38 counties, comprising 8000 square miles, and is San Antonio's main source of drinking water; so this aquifer is in no way unique to Austin. There is no evidence of the existence of perfect water derived from a deep aquifer in central Texas.

Distribution[edit]

Deep Eddy Sweet Tea Vodka and Deep Eddy Vodka are distributed throughout the United States
