Why would I join ONE ROQ?
Our commitment to principled drinking and counter-culture ethos is everything. We align ourselves with like-minded members who see-through the veil of mass-advertising and the dysfunction of big industry. We encourage everyone to be free, independent thinking consumers. If you enjoy the privilege of alcohol, why not form a deeper relationship with a brand you own, guide, and benefit from along the way?
What makes ONE ROQ better than Grey Goose, Ciroc, Titos?
ONE ROQ is a hand-crafted vodka of unparalleled quality and taste – developed with over half a decade of meticulous ingredient sourcing and disciplined recipe tasting. Our first place gold medal in the largest consumer tasting competition in the world is a testament to this claim. What makes us this good? Some say it is a secret recipe made from two of the purest and most iconic ingredients in the country: Mid-Western, American Corn and artisan Colorado Rocky mountain water. Others say it is because it may be first and only gluten, sulfite and sodium free vodkas in the world. But if you asked us, its our unwavering belief that an authentic lifestyle spirit should offer authentic lifestyle reward.
Is ONE ROQ better than Titos Vodka?
ONE ROQ and Titos have a lot in common. We both are made from corn. We both have won first place gold medals in large competitions. We both promote our American-made values. We both come from small beginnings. And we both represent an underlying resistance to foreign-owned brands. However, ONE ROQ and Titos differ in that we invite our drinkers to become more intimately connected with our spirit; to own our brand; to guide its direction; and benefit beyond the glass.
What kind of events will ONE ROQ sponsor / produce?
ONE ROQ will focus on sponsoring and producing events for its membership that include social mixers, concerts, sporting events, creative events and even galas. Members will be given VIP access to all events which may include complimentary food & drink.
Is One Roq Club legal?
Yes, ONE ROQ Club is legal, and we want everyone to be aware of the laws governing the company’s operation. The two important laws governing our operation include securities law called Regulation Crowdfunding (this is how we are able to accept money in exchange for equity in our company); and also, a Federal and State Alcohol Law known as the Three-Tier System, which governs the flow of ours goods through the supply chain.
The Three Tier System is a federally regulated supply chain requiring that all alcoholic producers sell their products to a licensed wholesaler, who in turn must sell to a licensed retailer, who in turn are able to sell to you. Because it could jeopardize our operations, it is important we state that ONE ROQ does not sell its products direct to its members, as this is would be in violation of the Three Tier System. In lieu, the company partners with industry approved, online portals that work with your local retailers to deliver our products to you. Our partner is 1-877-Spirits, a trusted online delivery service of alcoholic beverage for over 30 years – otherwise known as our Online Concierge.
For more information regarding these laws, please visit: SEC.org, TTB.gov or view our Offering Summary

I invested but I can’t I login to the app/club?
Investments take 7-20 days to fully clear. To receive access to the Club you must first be fully invested. You will know when you are fully cleared when your investment status diagram in your Member account shows the final stage of “Funds Invested” – or when you receive your official paper work from StartEngine. From there, it takes just a day for ONE ROQ to send you your official Welcoming e-mail which allows you to create your Member profile and account. Here you will use your StartEngine e-mail and a password of your choosing. The ONE ROQ Members dashboard can be accessed via laptop or our app.
I am fully invested but am not receiving the welcoming e-mail from ONE ROQ.
I’m a confirmed investor, have created a ONE ROQ Profile, but having trouble getting in.
If you created a Member profile with ONE ROQ, and are having trouble with your credentials, try creating a new password to reset your access.
If problems persist, e-mail tech support at: firstname.lastname@example.org
How do I know when I am fully invested?
Investments take anywhere from 7 to 20 days to clear depending on the Company’s next disbursement. To check your status, simply login to your StartEngine dashboard and observe the investment status diagram. It must be on the final stage: “funds invested.“
I invested and now it is asking me to “Reconfirm”?
Reconfirmations are required when your investment does not clear in time before the Company conducts its monthly disbursement. A reconfirmation is required for your original investment to be submitted and cleared. If you receive a reconfirmation, reconfirm as soon as convenient.
How do I generate earnings?
By virtue of investing, you have the right to receive future earnings in the form of potential dividends or upside on equity as the Company grows and increases in value. As a Member-Investor, you can drive the value of the Company simply by inviting others to Join the Club.
Why do I have to place orders through 1-877?
Today, all online orders throughout the industry of 80 proof spirits must be fulfilled by a licensed retailer or 3rd party fulfillment service which works with retailers to ship products to end-users in states where direct shipping of alcohol is lawful.
Why is the cost so high to order bottles?
All liquor companies are bound by a federally mandated supply chain known as the 3-tier system, which requires produces (ONE ROQ Spirits) to sell to a licensed wholesaler (in every state we want to market). That wholesaler then turns around and sells to retailers, who then sell to consumers. Each of these tiers requires 25% to 35% margin. To add to this cost, UPS and FEDEX apply a special Shipping & Tax figure that is above standard. To offset the industry wide expense burden of shipping alcohol due to the laws, ONE ROQ has made the commitment to create periodic promotions with its fulfillment partner, 1-877-Spirits. ONE ROQ remains very optimistic that price will continue to become more affordable to its Members as sales volumes increase.
How do I make suggestions for company improvements?
You can submit recommendations anytime using our Contact Form at ONEROQClub.com or by logging in to your Member dashboard.
How long does it take to process a Carry Request?
Currently requests are processing between 30-60 days in distributed markets and 60-120 days in non-distributed markets.
The Company’s goal is to fulfill Carry Requests within 7-14 days once a complete distribution and sales infrastructure as been established.
When do I get my perks?
The Company has chosen to create a staggered Perk Disbursement Schedule for investors to help it manage its cash flow. The current schedule is as follows:
