Dripping Springs: Deep Eddy to open 30,000-sf distilleryDripping Springs: Deep Eddy to open 30,000-sf distilleryhttps://www.recenter.tamu.edu/news/newstalk-texas/?Item=36092014-07-17T12:09:00Z2014-07-16T00:00:00Z

DRIPPING SPRINGS - Austin-based distiller Deep Eddy Vodka will soon move into a 30,000-sf facility on US 290. The cost of construction is estimated at $2.1 million, according to state filings.

The five-acre tract will house an expanded distillery and a large event space. A state law passed in September 2013 allows owners of distilleries and breweries to sell their products directly to customers directly on site.

“I think there’s going to be a lot of tourists coming into Austin to visit that will come visit the Deep Eddy distillery,” said Deep Eddy co-founder Clayton Christopher.

He expects Deep Eddy will ship 100,000 cases — 12 bottles to a case — this year to liquor stores, restaurants and bars in Texas, Florida and Colorado, primarily. “Last year we beat our forecast by 30 percent. We’ll have over 100 percent growth again this year, and we should beat it by 20 to 40 percent,” Christopher said.
