SPONSOR SPOTLIGHT: Tito's Handmade Vodka

Tito’s Handmade Vodka was founded by sixth-generation Texan, Tito Beveridge. His career track took a few turns, but between oil fields and mortgage lending, he found time to do what he loved: make people smile with spirits. Tito got a kick out of infusing vodka for friends and handing out bottles at parties. He quickly became known as "the vodka guy." Willing to risk it all, he pursued the career of his dreams and set out to build a distillery. Tito found a plot of land in rural Austin, constructed a small, bare-bones shack and a homemade pot still, and funded his passion for making “a vodka so smooth you could drink it straight” by opening 19 personal credit cards. He fought Texas laws, took on nearly $90,000 of debt, and for several years, played a one-man show to get his dream going, overseeing all distilling, hand-bottling, and selling during the hours in between. Twenty-five years later, Tito’s Handmade Vodka has gained a reputation for its high-quality product, charitable contributions, and its goal to make people happy while making the world a better place. 

Dogs have been a part of Tito's Handmade Vodka story for over twenty-five years. For a while, it was just Tito and his dog. They set up shop in rural Austin, Texas; Tito built a distillery and perfected his vodka, and DogJo kept him company. Soon, stray and feral dogs followed the smell of food and started showing up…and they’ve never stopped. These “distillery dogs” inspired the folks at Tito’s to amplify the impact of animal-focused nonprofits in Austin and beyond; teaming up to host thousands of dog-friendly events that celebrate the bond between pups and their people. Plus, 100% of the net proceeds from merch sold at the Love, Tito’s retail or web store benefit a selection of nonprofits, including an organization dedicated to helping people and their pets through affordable veterinary services. There’s a reason why Tito’s is Vodka for Dog People

Why is it important for Tito’s Vodka to join as a sponsor of Downtown Milwaukee’s first dog park?

Tito’s Handmade Vodka loves being involved in the community and supporting projects like the efforts to construct the first Dog Park in Downtown Milwaukee. The framework aligns perfectly with Tito’s mission to develop better spaces for humans and their pets to gather and enjoy as a community. We look forward to adding to the activity in the Downtown Milwaukee neighborhood, and participating at local pet friendly events that will take place at the downtown dog park with Tito’s.
