AUSTIN, Texas, May 9, 2013

AUSTIN, Texas, May 9, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --United Airlines today announced
that Tito's Handmade Vodka will be the exclusive vodka brand served on all of
the airline's flights worldwide. United customers have enjoyed the
award-winning craft vodka since the company began serving the spirit on May
1.

Tito's Handmade Vodka, an Austin-based company, is one of the fastest growing
micro distilleries in the United States. The handcrafted spirit earned a
unanimous Double Gold Medal at the San Francisco World Spirits Competition,
and it was awarded a score of 95 by Wine Enthusiast for its impeccable purity
and clean taste.

"United was looking for a great tasting vodka for our customers, and we've
found it in Tito's Handmade Vodka," said Lynda Coffman, United's vice
president of food services. "Tito's is a small-business success story with an
outstanding product. United has a rich history in Texas, and we are proud and
excited to bring Tito's around the globe to more than 370 destinations
worldwide." 

Tito's Handmade Vodka is now sold in all 50 states, the U.S. Virgin Islands
and Canadian provinces.

"Over the years, people have embraced my handmade vodka, traveling with it on
their own and spreading the word. Now that Tito's Handmade Vodka is inflight,
I'm glad its debut is with United Airlines," said Tito Beveridge, founder and
master distiller of Tito's Handmade Vodka. "We're excited for the new venture
with United and look forward to offering flyers around the world the chance to
experience a true American spirit."

Vodka is the number one-selling spirit served on United flights and is
commonly requested on the rocks. Vodka tonic and Bloody Mary cocktails are the
airline's customers' most preferred inflight sipping styles.

Tito's Handmade Vodka is available for sale in economy class on flights where
a beverage service is offered and may be purchased for $7 with a major credit
or debit card in United's cashless cabins. Customers flying in United's
premium cabins may enjoy the spirit at no cost.
