Deep Eddy Vodka, one of the fastest growing flavored vodka brands in the country, has over-delivered its twelve month rolling forecast by hitting the 250,000 case mark (June ’13 through May ’14). Since its launch in 2010, the brand has shown over 200 percent growth annually, with over 300 percent growth in the first quarter of 2014.
“This is an exciting time for our company. I am incredibly proud of our team and our distributor partners. We are all passionate about giving our consumers what we believe to be the best vodka available, made using REAL ingredients. “We have a fun brand, and we feel our consumers appreciate Deep Eddy’s simplicity,” said Eric Dopkins, CEO of Deep Eddy Vodka.
To support the growth of the brand, Deep Eddy Vodka will be opening a distillery and tasting room to be located in Dripping Springs outside of Austin, Texas. The production capacity at the new facility will allow the brand to exceed production of more than two million cases.
“We are proud to be an American made vodka, and we absolutely expect this brand to continue on its current growth trajectory. We are planning against that future performance,” Dopkins said.
More information on the distillery will be available soon.
Earlier this year, the brand released its latest flavored vodka, Deep Eddy Cranberry Vodka (Cran), a refreshing beverage made with real cranberries harvested from the finest New England cranberry farms.
The portfolio also includes award-winning all natural straight vodka, Sweet Tea Vodka and Ruby Red grapefruit-infused vodka. All Deep Eddy flavors are gluten-free and handcrafted in small batches in its distillery in Austin, Texas. Made with all real ingredients, Deep Eddy vodkas are free of artificial flavors and high-fructose corn syrup. Consumers can purchase Deep Eddy Vodka in four sizes: 50 ml, 750 ml, 1 liter and 1.75 liter.
