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 from 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: Midwestern, 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 an 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?
Yes. ONE ROQ’s business model recognizes – and abides – by key regulatory frameworks. They include the securities law, Regulation Crowdfunding (this is how we are able to issue equity in our company directly to 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 our 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, is able to sell to you.
What are the benefits of joining?

ONE ROQ Spirits Club is primarily a home delivery service. However, you can use the ONE ROQ app to submit a Carry Request. This app feature is live but limited to Phase 1 of its development.
Do I get a discount buying ONE ROQ Spirits if I join?

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 improve our pricing through economies of scale.
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 an 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 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, it first requires a major wholesaler to represent and carry the brand (3 months & $65k-$150k in inventory and commissions). Then the retailer must authorize (1-6 months & highly political). If the product becomes “authorized” and is placed on the 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 put into a well-executed online campaign could generate 25-200x the brand’s exposure and sales.
