Deep Eddy Vodka

5 StarStarStarStarStar

Deep Eddy Vodka is a 40% ABV vodka from the United States. It is filtered with Charcoal. The quality is considered to be amazing. The average price is around $12.47 per 750mL. Rated 5 out of 5 based on 8 reviews.

The bottle states the following:

Deep Eddy Vodka is handmade in Austin, Texas in a small distillery by a team serious about creating a great spirit. Using our experience and years of tinkering, we set out to raise the bar. Great vodka is born from attention to the smallest details. Water, filtration, and distillation are where we shine most. Deep Eddy is column-distilled in a temperature-perfect environment, which means state-of-the-art. We use the finest water in Texas, and because we use local, natural ingredients, and charcoal filter our vodka four times, nothing but smooth, clear vodka reaches the bottle. Pluse, we leave no waste behind in the process, which gets a nice tip of the hat from Mother Nature. So raise a glass of Deep Eddy and you’ll see what we’re so excited about.

Deep Eddy Vodka Review

5 StarStarStarStarStar

Deep Eddy Vodka first appeared on our radar in its sweet tea incarnation. As Southerners, we were delighted with the dark and sweet tea flavor, completely unaware that there was a straight vodka version of Deep Eddy. It took way too long, but we finally got our hands on a bottle of the straight vodka.

The Shot

Deep Eddy Vodka is light in the mouth. So light, in fact, it almost floats over my tongue instead of my tongue floating in the vodka. There’s no overbearing flavor, but there is a mild sweet undertone. There is an ever so slight hint of biterness on the swallow, but the vodka goes down very smooth, making a chaser the last thing on my mind. Rather, I’m left wanting another sip. I couldn’t ask for more from a vodka.

The Mixed Drink

First I mixed Deep Eddy Vodka with Diet V8 Splash “Berry Blend” because that’s what I had in the fridge. I’ve tried a few other vodkas with this, and none of them have been really pleasing. Deep Eddy, though, blends very well. It’s easy to drink and the vodka complements the mixer. It slightly dulls the sweetness but doesn’t introduce any bitter flavors.

Next I mixed up a screwdriver. Deep Eddy didn’t disappoint. The sweet undertones of the vodka bumped up the sweetness of the orange juice, making for a nice cocktail. I wish I had some cranberry juice around because this would make a great madras.

Deep Eddy Vodka is an excellent vodka for mixing.

Opinions

It’s clear to me now that Austin is the Vodka Capitol of the US. With natives like Deep Eddy and Tito’s Handmade Vodka, it’s really hard to compete with the great vodka coming out of Texas.

I won’t deny that we at VodkaBuzz are ardent Tito’s fans, but I’m completely sold on Deep Eddy. This is tantamount to being torn between Alabama and Auburn football. I won’t pretend that I can sway your heart, but if you haven’t tried Deep Eddy Vodka, you’re doing yourself a disservice. Deep Eddy is a wonderful vodka, and you can have it in sweet tea when you fancy it. My only question: Where can I buy it in Alabama?

Tito had better be watching his back!

Rated 5 out of 5.

    I finally indulged myself by adding Deep Eddy Vodka to my multi-bottle vodka collection, and didn’t hesitate to mix it into an extra dry martini up without any garnish. The aroma was extremely mellow, and the initial sip was very smooth. The flavor of Deep Eddy seemed assertive and on the sweeter side of bittersweet. There was no burn on the swallow, and the mild bittersweet aftertaste quickly dissipated as if I had not had any vodka in the cocktail. Deep Eddy sure seemed to have the stuff of a 5 star vodka. However, after nursing my martini for a while, I noticed something that I do not recall from any other vodka. Though there was no burn on the swallow, there was an unusual mildly astringent quality that was noticeable on the front and sides of my tongue after swallowing. After contemplating the affect of this on my enjoyment of the martini for most of the cocktail, I finally decided that it negatively impacted the experience just enough to limit my rating of Deep Eddy to 4 stars. At a moderate cost of $15.99 per fifth locally, I can do a bit better with Sobieski and Luksusowa regarding both quality and price.

    I have to look out for this on on the local liquor store shelves. I just opened a 1.75L bottle of the value champion Sobieski, so I don’t plan on shopping vodka for a while, though.

    I bought three bottles on a promotion: $9.99 each and a $30 rebate. So, the price was certainly right.
    I think it’s OK on the rocks and probably will be fine in a mixed drink.

    Deep Eddy’s sweet tea vodka is INSANE! You should really give it a try.

    Also from the are is Dripping Springs Vodka. It’s my current favorite.

    I almost agree with your review on Deep Eddy’s. The reason I give it a 4 is because I am not a fan of the slight burn when I drink it straight. It is close to Titos but not quite there. The sweet tea on the other hand is an excellent vodka.

    Have gone through a few bottles over the course of several weeks. I drink vodka often & never have hangovers but husband & I just made the connection that we were both feeling pretty awful after drinking Deep Eddy. I have a headache, stomach ache & my throat is burning each morning after drinking it ( he only had one & is throwing up ) Finally looked at the label & realized that it is distilled from corn. I avoid corn products unless organic or GMO free so If you are sensitive to corn, avoid this vodka. I bought it because it’s cheap & seemed like it would be a good boutique vodka, guess you get what you pay for. I’ll go back to my Chopin potato vodka now.

    There is nothing more i could want out of a vodka. Deep Eddy has a good marketing campaign (at least im austin tx) and they back it up. Recent they came out with ruby red (grapefruit) and cranberry flavors that do not disappoint and i sell them at my bar consistently.

      I was told they were getting distribution here last summer (I’m in Birmingham, AL as well). I haven’t seen it on shelves at the ABC stores. I’ll follow up with them and see what I can find out.

    I drink my Vodka neat, over ice. Deep Eddy is very neutral on the front end, with only a slight burn at the back end. It leaves no discernible aftertaste, and does not cause next-morning Vodka breath when consumed in reasonable amounts. It is my favorite Vodka.

    What I really don’t understand, however, is Deep Eddy’s marketing strategy. It was introduced at a low price point, $17.99 for a 1.75, if I recall, with a rebate of $30 for buying three bottles. This got it a lot of volume, and a good amount of shelf space and promotional activity at my favorite liquor store.

    Then, all of a sudden, it was gone. The store manager said the company had drastically raised the wholesale price, meaning she would have to retail it at a minimum of $22.95 (1.75L). It lost all its shelf space almost overnight. To me, that’s still a good value, and I will continue to buy this product

    But I think the worst thing any company can do in marketing is to confuse the customer about where the product is positioned, price and value-wise. If Deep Eddy wanted to position itself as a mid-range Vodka, bringing it out at a really low price point, and adding in a huge rebate, was a big mistake. The company is discovering how hard it is to move upscale, even to mid-price It’s still my favorite, and I ordered 2 cases yesterday for about $20/1.75L.

      I finally noticed a bottle on a local liquor store shelf. I still have partial bottles of Luksusowa (old and new labels), Russian Standard Original, Americana Luxury Vodka, New Amsterdam, Crystal Head, and Jean Marc XO, so I decided that it was not the right time to add to my collection. However, with the rave 5 star review it was difficult to pass up, even at $19.99 per fifth. Too bad that it wasn’t available locally several months ago so that I could have taken advantage of the introductory low price and rebate promotion.
