We always need a bit of sunlight in our lives, even when the sun is hidden because of those pesky dark clouds. What better way to bring back some sunshine in your home with a zest of lemon and a simple drink that will help you make a great cocktail. This is what Deep Eddy Lemon Vodka is all about: affordable, easy to use, delicious to taste.
Why is it called Deep Eddy Lemon?
Deep Eddy has different flavors of all sorts such as Deep Eddy Peach Vodka, for example. But where does the name Deep Eddy come from? The name, believe it or not, is actually related to a swimming pool located in Austin, Texas! Now, you might think that this is kind of lame but the latter is no random pool.
In fact, it is the oldest man-made swimming pool that was built in Texas, as it dates all the way back to the year 1915. And we are not talking about your typical backyard swimming pool here, we are talking about a huge water pool resort that was built during the Depression-era.
That being said, it is just a few years later that this wonderful place became an actual resort. Nowadays, it is simply a public swimming pool where everybody can come enjoy a good swim under the hot sun of Texas. With a history spanning across a full century, it’s no wonder the name Deep Eddy Lemon was chosen for a refreshing spirit.
How is Deep Eddy Lemon Vodka made?
This vodka is made in Austin, Texas, with what we call a column distillation process. To put it simply, the vodka is distilled 10 times in a row in a 20 ft tall column which creates its extra smooth finish. What is even more impressive, is that this method of distillation does not create any waste. The main ingredient used for making this lemon vodka is corn, and per 1 oz of vodka, you’ll find the following nutrients:
- 70 Calories
- 4 Carbs
- 3 Sugars
Also, if you were wondering if the Vodka Deep Eddy was using real fruits, then the answer is yes! Only real lemons are used in the making of Deep Eddy Lemon Vodka, which results in a sweet and sour taste.
