Dripping Springs Vodka Takes International Spirits Trophy

Speaking of big Drip winners, San Luis Spirits of Dripping Springs, Texas took the "Purity Trophy for Vodka" in the 2008 International Wine & Spirit Competition for its Dripping Springs Vodka.

From the judges tasting notes: "Crystal clear. Piercing nose with no apparent smell yet lively alcoholic sensation in the nose. Full impact on the palate with abundant, mouth filling sensation. Tremendous intensity. Decided grainy note in the super smooth mouth. Finest texture. Fascinating notes in long, well controlled finish. A great sipping vodka."

One Babbler has been known to make DewDriptinis using sweetened dewberry juice made from locally picked dewberries, Dripping Springs Vodka, Paula's Texas Orange Liquer, and a lightly sugared, frozen dewberry.
