Fifth Generation was founded in 1995 in Austin, Texas. It was the first legal distillery in Texas and the only distillery today that produces pure alcohol, known as vodka. The company's only brand is Tito's Handmade Vodka. The spirit is distilled using round distillating stills (yes, an old-fashioned distillating still) rather than modern distillation columns, and it is made from corn only and distilled six times. Tito's is distributed throughout the United States, as well as in some parts of Canada. Fifth Generation was founded in 1995 by Bert "Tito" Beveridge, who started making flavoured vodka for his friends and relatives as holiday gifts.
