The story behind the creation of BLK EYE Vodka started with a bold vision. With 100% Texas roots from farm to bottle, it’s the first vodka crafted by hand from black-eyed peas. The result is a smooth-tasting stroke of genius. At BlackEyed Distilling Co., we just believe an ultra premium experience should be evident from the first sip. Smooth. Subtle. Singular. That’s what being an original is all about.
Each of our limited-edition bottles features designs by talented local artists who know a thing or two about what it means to be a true Texas original. The BLK EYE brand will continue to evolve as we commission new artists to share their own unique vision of originality.
Our debut bottle features artwork by Fort Worth landscape artist Pat Gabriel, who gives a nod to our signature ingredient. His mixed media illustration shows sunflowers growing in a field of black-eyed peas. Gabriel is drawn to the distinct lighting effects created at dusk and by thunderstorms, a transformative light that portrays the ordinary as extraordinary.Artist Site
Our vodka is made from the perfect blend of non-GMO black-eyed peas and corn. Black-eyed peas possess the starch needed to make fermented mash and their amino acids feed the yeast to yield a higher quality alcohol.
