Vodka Cocktail With A Twist Of Farms

It may only take a couple of minutes for you, or your bartender, to mix up one of our Rogue cocktails.

But our part began months ago, in the dirt of Rogue Farms in Tygh Valley and Independence, Oregon.

Here’s what goes into making the Main Squeeze Cocktail, a blend of Rogue’s Single Malt Vodka and Honey Orange Soda. It starts with our amber waves of grain.

Risk Harvest

Harvesting our 100 acres of Risk™ malting barley at Rogue Farms in Tygh Valley. Every bottle of Single Malt Vodka is made exclusively from barley we grew ourselves.

Then we add honey from our 7,140,289 Rogue Farms honeybees.

Honey Harvest

The honey harvest at Rogue Farms in Independence. On the left, our beekeeper removes a honey filled frame from a hive. On the right, Brewmaster John Maier pitches in by removing the wax from the comb so the honey flows easily during harvesting. This is how we get the honey we brew into our Honey Orange Soda.

We’re not nearly done yet. Next we malt our barley, mash it, distill it and bottle it by hand to craft Single Malt Vodka. To brew Honey Orange Soda, we’ll drive the honey 77-miles over the Coast Range to our Sodaery in Newport where we’ll stir it into the kettle along with cane sugar, orange peel, coriander and chamomile.

Now that we’ve done all that, here’s all you need to do.
