Regulation Crowdfunding lets private companies raise up to $1.07m annually by selling securities such as membership units, as in this offering, to the public online.

Where can I try ONE ROQ?
ONE ROQ can be purchased through our website for home-delivery at: ONEROQClub.com. In the future, the product will be made available in select retailers of your selection by using the “Carry Request” app tool. The availability of this feature is determined by the status of our distribution in your market.
Can I buy ONE ROQ in market, too, or just online?
If ONE ROQ is not available at your desired retailer already, we have designed an app that allows you to submit Carry Requests to place ONE ROQ in preferred retailers and venues of your choosing. Once you’ve submitted the request, we work to place the product in that location within 7-30 days on your behalf. Note, if Requests are made inside a market that we have yet to set up an agent network, Carry Requests can take as long as 120 days+. Again, this feature is currently in development and not available Nationwide. (Patience will be required in our early development stages.)
I ordered product online. When will I receive my first bottle?
Deliveries take 3-7 business days from the time you order (delivery restrictions may apply based on location). Orders fulfilled by 3rd party platform by law.

Membership is cancelable at anytime. Reactivations of Membership bear a $10 reactivation fee.Investors are able to cancel at any point throughout the campaign up until 48 hours before an issuer conducts a rolling close (“Notice of Disbursement” is sent with deadline to cancel). If the issuer does not close on your funds during the campaign, you will be able to cancel your investment up until 48 hours before the closing of the offering. Please refer to StartEngine’s investor information center on their website for further details. Once the live offering has closed, you may choose how to handle your shares. Investors will be introduced to the company’s selected transfer agent, or cap table management service, who will be responsible for the transfer of your shares after the close of the offering. There is not currently an established secondary market for shares, and membership units sold under this offering have a one-year period before becoming unrestricted and are able to be freely sold.

What makes ONE ROQ mine?
When you invest in ONE ROQ Spirits LLC, you’re buying a piece of the company and its brand in the form of equity. Equity represents a financial interest in the company, which allows you to accept financial rewards as we grow, have a vote in company decision making, and align with the brand on a more intimate level compared to other brands you have bought in the past. More details as to unit holders’ votes are included in the Operating Agreement and discussed above.
What are the commitments of the club?
There are no commitments of the club after you join, but we do hope you find features of the club helpful in supporting the company’s mission and growth objectives, such as our 24/7 Concierge, Referral Rewards, and Carry Request tools.
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 creation. Our first place gold medal in the largest consumer tasting competition in the world, as well as our 2020 95pt rating the Food & Beverage Network, 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 one of the first and only gluten, sulfite and sodium free vodka in the world. But if you asked us, it’s 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 members 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 and drink. Covid-19 is currently affecting Company event schedules in 2020 but we look forward to evolving this platform in the “Post-Covid” era.
Is ONE ROQ Club legal?
The two important laws governing our operation include the securities law, Regulation Crowdfunding (this is how we are able to accept money in exchange for equity in our company direct from the public); Tied House, which seeks to prevent intermingling between suppliers, wholesalers and retail operators, and 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 fulfillment portals that work with your local retailers to deliver our products to you. Currently, 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, please refer to our Risk Factors which discuss these laws.
What are the benefits of joining?
Can I sell my equity?

You can use the ONE ROQ app to submit a Carry Request. Our aim is to place ONE ROQ in the retailer of your choice, provided we have active distribution in your market, there is retailer acceptance and Covid-19 is not disrupting the business of your desired retail establishment, bar or restaurant. This app feature is currently in development and available with limited coverage.
Do I get a discount buying ONE ROQ if I join?
Yes, as a member you will receive monthly discount codes of up to 40% off you can use towards products and services of the Club. Discount codes are posted to your Member dashboard monthly.

using your app and request it with the store owners or manager. (Note, fulfillment delays may apply based on your location and the status of our distribution in your market.)
Can I get a free sample before I join?
Due to the cost of our product, as well as liquor laws prohibiting free alcoholic goods to consumers, we currently do not offer free samples.
Will the cost of ONE ROQ come down over time?
The company cannot guarantee any cost changes but our hope is to be able to continue to improve our margins and pricing.
What is the difference between a Membership “Unit” and a “Share” of Stock?
“Units” are used to describe the measure of ownership when a company’s legal structure is a LLC. “Shares” are used to describe the measure of ownership in a C-Corp or an S-Corp. ONE ROQ Spirits is currently structured as an LLC, but will evaluate the advantages of converting to a C-Corp upon material growth of the company.
Will ONE ROQ always be an LLC?
ONE ROQ Spirits is currently structured as an LLC for tax purposes, but will evaluate the advantages of converting to a C-Corp upon material growth of the company.

tool located in your Member Dashboard.

Perk Shopping Credits (up to 10% back on your investment) are posted to your dashboard an average of 9-12 months following your investment(s).
I Invested and became Waitlisted, will I get into the offering?
If you invested in oversubscription mode, this means you have reserved your place to purchase equity in the event investors who invested before the Company reached its maximum funding goal do not confirm their investment.

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.

As a Member, you can earn monthly cash by referring new Members to the Club as well as introducing ONE ROQ to your local bars, restaurants, and retailers. If you are an investor, you can drive the value of your investment 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.
