For over 100 years, thousands have flocked to the Deep Eddy pool in southwestern Austin. It’s man-made, features a depression-era bathhouse, and is protected under the U.S. National Registrar Of Historic Places.
It's also where American Field Sponsor, Deep Eddy Vodka, gets its name.
The vodka brand was founded in 2010 by two Austin-area entrepreneurs with a background in spirits. Mr. Clayton Christopher (creator of Sweet Leaf Tea) and Mr. Chad Auler (creator of Savvy Vodka).
The brand left its mark right away with a line of premium vodka made using real ingredients and all-natural flavors. Best of all—Deep Eddy Vodka is 100% made in the U.S.A.
Part of Deep Eddy’s charm is their commitment to locally and nationally farmed products. Local grapefruits, honey, cranberries and lemons help flavor their extensive vodka line, which includes traditional, Ruby Red, Sweet Tea, Cranberry, Lemon and Peach flavors.
Even clearer than their vodka, though, is the fact that their American-made commitment works. Today, Deep Eddy Vodka is the nation's fastest growing vodka brand. They’re also the only brand that’s achieved triple digit growth (117%) over the last year (and have done so over the last 6 years).
Current CEO, Eric Dopkins, says “Word of mouth continues to be our driving force as consumers and bartenders tell others about our brand that uses the highest quality ingredients. Deep Eddy Vodka simplifies cocktails and speaks to today’s consumers who are looking for simpler and more natural products from authentic brands they feel connected to.”
