Take it as a sign that everything continues to be peachy at Deep Eddy Vodka.

The local distillery is launching a new flavored vodka nationwide next month, in keeping with its tradition at the start of every year to add a new bottle to your bar shelf.

This year — following lemon, cranberry and grapefruit — the debuting vodka flavor is peach. Like all others in the Deep Eddy line, Deep Eddy Peach is made with real fruit and Texas aquifer water, and it’ll be available first at the Dripping Springs distillery starting on Thursday.

The vodka company decided to pursue peach as its sixth-produced spirit because of how ripe the fruit is for use in cocktails, especially light, refreshing ones in spring and summertime like the Bellini.

“Peach is a classic American flavor and has seen a resurgence in cocktails over the past few years,” Brandon Cason, Vice President of Marketing at Deep Eddy Vodka, said in a news release. “We worked on Deep Eddy Peach for more than a year to ensure we capture the flavor of real peaches in a way that enables both simple mixology at home and complex cocktails for advanced bartenders.”

Deep Eddy Vodka has seen skyrocketing growth over the past few years and produced more than 700,000 cases last year after being bought up by a Kentucky beverage company. Each of its bottles are found in all 50 states. Deep Eddy Peach, which officially launches in February, will go on retail shelves for $19.99.

Once you’ve got your bottle of the peach vodka in hand, try it in these easy-to-make cocktails.
