Most of us grew up in the era where food came out of a box. But remember what it was like when you made something from scratch? Those amazing flavors and the freshness?
You could taste the difference it made when you took the time to gather all the ingredients, measure them carefully, and mix, cook or bake everything by hand.
Now imagine how much better it would taste if you grew all those ingredients yourself.
That’s the GYO and DIY Revolution of Rogue Spirits.
A few hours east of our Distillery in Newport, Oregon, we’re harvesting our first crop of malting barley this season at Rogue Farms in Tygh Valley. The Risk™ and Dare™ malting barley we grow in the rain shadow of Mt. Hood are just two of the ingredients we grow ourselves so that we can mash and distill our spirits from scratch.

Roasting and Smoking
Bottling By Hand
In the next couple of months, more ingredients will be coming from our farms to our Brewery and Distillery in Newport, Oregon. The Dare™ malting barley will be harvested in about a week or so. Then there’s our jalapeños, hazelnuts, corn, rye, juniper, angelica root, ginger, orris root, coriander and cucumbers.
From our farms to your table, that’s how we grow Rogue Spirits from scratch.
Please come to Rogue Farms this summer and see how we grow, harvest, malt, roast, smoke, mash, distill, ocean age and hand bottle the Revolution!
