After college, we headed to Breckenridge Colorado in search of a new perspective after discovering that a conventional career just wasn’t for us. We met a spirits distiller, and after feeling his passion for the craft, we set out to learn as much as we could about the art of distilling. We were hooked, and Gypsy Vodka was born!
“We didn’t just want to make vodka -- we wanted to build a brand for young at heart... the free-spirited adventurers like ourselves.” The name Gypsy represents our lifestyle and the way we live -- and, how we hope everyone lives their lives, with freedom. Whether climbing the peaks of Colorado, or finding new family at a music festival, we were taught from an early age that living the life you want, is within reach. And, we owe so much of our inspiration and success to the people who have taught (and shown) us along the way… Gypsy is as much theirs as it is ours.
The journey hasn’t been easy, but we were dedicated to the brand, spending long nights living out of our van and tent, seeking investors, and working many odd jobs to make Gypsy a reality. Today, Gypsy is a thriving brand with expanding labels under High Five Spirits!
It took exploring 50 different formulas and hosting countless taste tests, but we believe Gypsy is the best tasting, smoothest vodka on the market. Gypsy is gluten free and corn-distilled six times using Artesian Spring Water. Our specially selected American-grown corn brings out naturally sweet tones and subtle earthy notes that make it the best domestically made, and award winning Vodka!
We hope you enjoy it as much as we enjoy making it … because life is a journey.
