The Lowe Down

Celebrating National Vodka Day & ACL Weekend with Tito's - Austin's Own

Happy Hour Drinks

Hey there! Justin Lowe here, bringing you another edition of "The Lowe Down." I've seen this city grow, shift, and transform into the dynamic hub it is today. From the harmonious tunes of ACL to our local distilleries making a splash on the global stage, there's no place like Austin.

Now, speaking of tunes and spirits, did you know that today is National Vodka Day? And, to add to the revelry, this weekend marks the first of ACL (Austin City Limits Music Festival). Given that we're in the business of providing top-tier investment opportunities with Land& and personal property management through @rentersclub, we're all about merging business with pleasure. And what better way to do that than by celebrating with Austin's own – Tito's Vodka?

A Bit of Backstory

Before we dive into these delightful vodka-infused concoctions, let's pay homage to our homegrown star: Tito's Handmade Vodka. Crafted right here in Austin, Tito's has become a global sensation. But like every success story, Tito's began with a dream and, of course, a passion for vodka.
