HAPPENING IN TOWN
TITO’S TOP DISTILLED SPIRIT IN US
@ AUSTIN, TX
The top-selling distilled spirit in the country is made right here in Austin, according to the International Wine and Spirits Record.
Tito’s Handmade Vodka knocked Smirnoff vodka off its decade-long reign at the top of the chart, the London-based agency said in its 2019 U.S. beverage alcohol review.
In a press release Wednesday, the IWSR said Tito’s sales jumped more than 20% in 2019. Vodka is also the largest spirit category by volume in the country, the report said.
@ ZILKER BELTS
Founded in 2015, Zilker Belts was born with a mission to embrace handmade craftsmanship while bringing a classic Argentine style to our Austin. The ACL Belt features world-class light brown Argentine leather with multi-color nylon thread, artfully hand-stitched in Buenos Aires. The thread colors and logo stamp are in the theme of the Austin City Limits Music Festival in Zilker Park.

“Courtney and the Oldham Group are the absolute best! We worked with Courtney when my husband and I were buying our first home. I knew she was the realtor for us after she showed us a home on the corner of a really busy street and promptly told us there was no way she would let is buy that house! She really has your best interests at heart! To this day she remains a close friend to us. I recommend her and the Oldham Group without reservation to anybody who is looking to buy or sell!”– Kristin P.
