Deep Ellum Distillery is a hidden gem, found in an unassuming back alley in the middle of Dallas’ Deep Ellum District. Equally surprising is the man behind the many whiskey varieties currently maturing their way to market. Reade Huddleston has received his masters at Heriot-Watt University in Edinburgh in Brewing and Distilling, and has worked throughout Europe and North America learning all the different styles of distilling to take his work beyond “craft” and bordering into “alchemy”.
Deep Ellum has a massive Vendome still located directly behind their tasting room bar and it is now dedicated to the production of true Texas Whiskey.These mad scientists are challenging what people think about when it comes to Texas whiskies. Their processes are like the Texas people themselves…a mix of cultures from North America, Germany, Hispanic, Scottish, French, etc… The science behind all of these legacy processes is what really makes Deep Ellum unique. Reade and his team are working to decipher what makes all these different distilling heritages unique, then figure out ways to bring the best of all cultures into our state. Just like Texas itself.
Deep Ellum currently only has Vodka available for sale, but the whiskey is about to start flowing. Barrels are aging and soon will be released in various expressions.
