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.

Competitive Differentiator: 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 has ONE ROQ sponsored or produced?
ONE ROQ has sponsored and activated events for its members that include car shows, film festivals, sporting events, concerts, festivals, creative events, and other kinds of galas. Members are offered complimentary or discounted tickets to ONE ROQ affiliated events. 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.

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.
Will ONE ROQ be available at major retailers?
ONE ROQ believes major Retailers present an unnecessary cost & marketing burden to the Company when it has instead generated direct to home ordering & shipment solutions in 34 US States and provides the same (or better) at home experience with competitive prices.
To give you a sense of what unnecessary cost & marketing looks like, consider that to become available in a major retailer first requires a major wholesaler to represent and carry the brand (3 months & $65k-$150k an inventory and commissions). Then the retailer must authorize (1-6 months & highly political). If the product becomes “authorized” and is placed on shelf, the Retailer expects the supplier to invest in its own media campaign ($50,000 to $250,000 and 6-12 months) to drive sales for said retailer.
The same time and cost into a well-executed online campaign could generate 25-200x the brands exposure and sales.
