Tito's Handmade Vodka is to roll out its namesake craft spirit in the UK after it signed a distribution deal with Hi-Spirits.

The Texas vodka, which increased its on-trade volumes by about two-thirds in the US last year, will be available in the UK on- and off-trade from this month, Hi-Spirits said yesterday (7 January). It will have an SRP of GBP29.99 (US$50) per 70cl bottle.

Tito's founder and master distiller, Tito Beveridge, said of the UK: “It’s a dynamic market, and we’re proud to partner with Hi-Spirits to expand our distribution there.”

Based in Austin, Tito's uses corn to produce the vodka. It has seen strong growth over recent quarters in the US on-trade. According to tracking firm GuestMetrics last month, year-on-year volumes growth for the vodka in Q1 last year was 53%, 66% in Q2 and 72% in Q3.

Its overall growth for the three quarters was 66%.
