Paula's Texas Grapefruit Liqueur makes an incredible Paloma and mixes well with many different spirits and sparkling wines. Paula's Texas Grapefruit is 54 proof.
Once upon a time a South Texas farm girl graduated from college and got a job far from home, in England. As the natives there do, she vacationed in sunny Italy as frequently as possible. While there, she fell in love with the exquisite Italian liqueur, Limoncello. Being a can-do country girl, once back home in Texas, she began making Limoncello for friends and more than one suggested she make a business of it. On the advice of a wise man in the spirits industry, she first brought an arancello (or orange liqueur) to market, as Texas is not only God’s country but margarita country as well. Paula’s Texas Orange was launched in 2005, Paula’s Texas Lemon in 2006, and Paula's Grapefruit in 2016. Paula Angerstein became the first woman and second person ever to be licensed to distill spirits in the state of Texas.
Paula’s liqueurs are made with fresh oranges, grapefruits, and lemons.
In 2013 Gary and Dee Kelleher joined as managing partners in the business. In 2006, after many happy years in the bar and restaurant business, Gary and his brother, Kevin, co-founded Dripping Springs Texas Vodka.
Paula’s Texas Orange, Lemon, and Grapefruit Liqueurs, made from fresh fruit and pure cane sugar, are all-natural and gluten-free.
In 2018, Paula's Texas Spirits became part of the Dripping Springs Distilling portfolio.
