This is one of the most respected spirits events anywhere. This year they had a record 1,474 entries from 64 countries. They also like to award “undiscovered” spirits from small, artisan distilleries like Rogue. They’re not just looking for taste and quality, but also innovation.
It’s a nice feather in our cap after winning Distillery Of The Year at the World Beverage Competition in Geneva.
This summer we’re revolutionizing Pink Spruce Gin by growing our own ingredients at Rogue Farms in Independence, Oregon. We’re planting a garden full of juniper berries, cucumbers, ginger, orris root, angelica root and coriander. The spruce grows near our distillery on the Oregon Coast and we age Pink Spruce Gin in Oregon Pinot Noir barrels.

Please visit us at Rogue Farms this summer to see how we grow our own proprietary palate of ingredients, then head over to the Rogue Distillery in Newport to see how our ingredients are mashed, distilled, ocean aged and bottled by hand.
