ONE ROQ Spirits is the maker of ONE ROQ Vodka Club (ONEROQClub.com), a next-generation lifestyle adult beverage brand, concierge, and membership community leveraging technology, law, and brand strategy within the 384 billion distilled spirits market. Our Offering II builds on the momentum of the Company's initial, over-subscribed round of SEC-Regulated Crowdfunding where it raised over  $1.07M in commitments from 2,700+ Founding Member-investors from around the world, allowing us to launch one of the market's first, consumer-owned lifestyle adult beverage brands. 


STORY

When award-winning product developer and serial entrepreneur, Garrett Green, entered the spirits market in 2012, he knew he wasn't going to be able to beat the giant brands at their own game.  So, for three years, he invested to learn the industry, refine his spirit, and develop an innovative business model designed to break through their barriers. Today, you can join our journey to expand our pioneering business model to capitalize on the potential of building a globally recognized, lifestyle adult beverage brand. Invest now to join our family and become a privileged Member of the Club (ONEROQClub.com).



OUR BEGINNINGS

In the mid 2000s, Garrett became inspired by the success of French luxury vodka brand Grey Goose Vodka after selling to Bacardi Ltd. for $2 billion, and wondered why the market didn't have an iconic American luxury brand equivalent? Engaging his entrepreneurial spirit, he saw the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to create a new category inside the global distilled spirits market. 


Garrett began his process by scouring US farms and distillers in search of the perfect ingredients to create an iconic, American recipe. Eventually, he chose a blend of artisanal mountain water from the Colorado Rockies and sweet corn from the American Midwest, and discovered a proprietary resting process that resulted in its signature taste and mouthfeel. From there, he let envisioned brand values inform the design and name.


NAME

Garrett knows that success requires immense physical and emotional strength to overcome the constant challenges of life. With this, the idea of being reliant upon one self to consistently find strength led to the notion of  "a rock" and "ONE ROQ" was born.


PRODUCT VALIDATION

With a finished product, Garrett launched ONE ROQ's initial market test and within 120 days of its introduction, it won the first-place gold medal for taste and design in the 2012 International SIP Awards In San Francisco - the world's largest, consumer-judged tasting competition - validating ONE ROQ's superior quality, taste, and diverse consumer appeal.


THE BARRIERS

Over the course of three years, the Company invested the foundational capital to refine ONE ROQ's packaging, learn about traditional distribution networks, and gain first-hand exposure to several industry barriers that routinely blindside new brands.  From this initial investment, Garrett concluded that to be successful in the industry, a brand cannot stand on award-winning credentials alone. The industry's 3-Tier System, pay-to-play culture, and exhaustive use of lifestyle advertising schemes deployed by establishment brands are key barriers  that will need to be surmounted with strategy of a new realm."

THE PROBLEM

"Lifestyle Marketing" is a widely used practice wherein large companies  conceptually place their brands inside the advertisements of successful or attractive lifestyles. This method is used in an attempt to have us believe that if we buy those brands, we in turn acquire the status or success we see in those advertisements. ONE ROQ believes this is deceptive because it knows that real lifestyle and financial rewards are enjoyed by - and only by - the owners of brands. 


OUR SOLUTION

Jaded by inferior lifestyle promises made by virtually all other luxury brands, ONE ROQ abandoned the industry marketing mold, transformed its brand values, and redeveloped its business model through the ONE ROQ Vodka Club, an industry-first, membership platform redefining brand experience through equity, lifestyle and reward.


THE FOUNDATION IS READY 

We've invested heavily to develop an award-winning product, establish deep expertise in the market, and innovate a working strategy that we believe is already positioning the company for an exciting and promising future.

By investing today, investors have the outstanding opportunity of acquiring equity at the earliest stage of the Company's life cycle, enjoy highly unique  Club Privileges, and impart real influence over the destiny of their investment simply by aligning with ONE ROQ, and sharing the spirit and Club with others.

Foundational Investments by the Founder (2012 to 2015) were critical to developing a differentiated strategy. The Founder invested $1M  into comprehensive market analysis and development. Through this investment, we were able to develop an award-winning product for taste and design, establish an academic understanding of the industry, become the beneficiary of several accolades from renowned international organizations verifying the outstanding quality and potential of our brand. Some of these organizations include: Robb Report Magazine, the International SIP Awards, Bentley Motors, Elite Traveler Magazine, Black Book Magazine, BIN Magazine.


Over this period, we leveraged the initial capital investment to improve our knowledge  of the barriers and develop an overall marketing strategy that would provide a means to overcome them. Candidly, we endured numerous industry lessons which routinely defeat the most promising of brands. 


Instead, ONE ROQ methodically paused, reflected on its learnings, and redeveloped its model with a paradigm-shifting marketing approach. From 2016 through 2017, we vetted and prepared the new plan, and in October of 2018, we partnered with StartEngine to begin and capitalize. The results after our first year are showing exceptional promise, and we are so excited for the future of ONE ROQ and our Members.

Our New Approach Is WORKING (2019 to 2020)

In Q4 2018, we launched our first equity campaign to fund our new vision, and by 2020, ONE ROQ successfully launched as one of the world's first and only Member-owned, luxury adult beverage brands, raising $1M+ in commitments and validating its industry-first marketing approach with over 2700 initial Members from across the world. Some of our outstanding achievements include: 

  • Successfully developed, tested and launched envisioned Member-experience and lifestyle platform for Members
  • Built and refined technology, methods and processes driving website, e-mail, social, advertising and mobile platforms to achieve desired user experience
  • Increased Company value by 10%+ post money for Round I investors
  • Launched 7 National Sponsorships, Member Events and Partnerships including: Tribeca Film Festival, The South Open, The Elite NY, The Emmy's Gifting Suite, The New York Motorcar Auction, The Hamptons, Art Basel Miami, Aspen X Games, and Sundance Film Festival Utah

  • ONE ROQ has developed a proprietary blending and resting technique resulting in signature taste and smoothness that we believe competes with - or beats - the best vodkas in the world.
  • Internationally award winning - for taste and design - from largest consumer judged competition in the world.
  • 95 pts awarded by the Food & Beverage network in 2020 !

A Revolutionary Business Model

  • ONE ROQ has created paradigm-shifting brand experience platform that allows its end-users  to take a financial position in the Company, and control the destiny of that financial position simply by aligning with the brand by utilizing the platform and its privileges.
  • Proprietary App Tool (Carry Request) enables Members to request ONE ROQ availability at their favorite locations/venues, allowing them to create their own personal supply chains of ONE ROQ.
  • Innovative Cultural Strategy:  ONE ROQ's lifestyle platform is meant to positively stimulate dialog regarding consumer rights and equity, brand values,  and the historical privileges of the wealthy that have kept early stage opportunities away from main street investors.

The Traction 

  • $1M+ invested by Company in industry experience and foundational assets.  We are an experienced  startup that is ready to navigate and sustain the industry terrain.
  • $1M invested into commercialization of industry-first platform resulting in month over month Member and Sales growth. 
  • Initial Members have demonstrated the market interest and viability of ONE ROQ's unique approach.
  • ONE ROQ has become the  No. 1 Selling vodka on its partner platform, 1-877-Spirits ahead of plan.

The Marketing Innovation

  • Brand-positioning that will capitalize on the yet-to-be-established 'Super-premium American' vodka category. 
  • Innovative Marketing Platform & Membership Club is allowing the brand to distinguish itself from every major brand  in the market as the first lifestyle brand owned and guided by the end-user.

Direct-to-Consumer Communication

  • Traditionally, distilled spirits companies believe they must work with wholesalers to communicate their brand's unique value propositions to the end users. However, the use of the wholesaler under traditional practices brings significant communication and cost challenges to new brands, as the model promotes three degrees of separation between producers and their end users (i.e., supplier --> wholesaler -->retailer--> end-user), as well as a 'diffusion of responsibility' on behalf of wholesalers and retailers who sell hundreds, if not thousands of other brands owned by "more important" suppliers. 
  • So, we asked the logical question: How can we truly rely upon a wholesaler to accurately and passionately communicate the unique selling features of our brand to retailers, who then would turn around and accurately represent that same messaging to consumers? The answer we realized: we can't. 
  • Instead, we deploy direct-to-consumer methods using proven digital marketing and face-to-face activation via tastings and events to reach and communicate with our end-users who are invited to Join the Club and Own Their Spirit. Through this approach, ONE ROQ is controlling its destiny.

Legal : ONE ROQ is required to sell through a federally regulated supply chain, known as the three-tier system, and lawfully uses this system to carry out the retail availability and home delivery of its products. 

CREATIVE EXCELLENCE

ONE ROQ will launch print, video and ground promotional assets bearing the "Escape The Ordinary," and "Own Your Spirit,"  trademarked slogans driving focus to our company's purpose for being.

BRAND POSITIONING

ONE ROQ aims to acquire market share by building itself as the Luxury-American Vodka alternative to current Value-American vodka options.

LAUNCH PLAN

With its proven marketing and technology platform built, the Company is seeking to aggressively scale its model  and  establish broadline distribution agreements to open all 50 US states by 2022.

PRODUCTION LINE

ONE ROQ will initially focus with its line of award-winning luxury vodkas. Additional product introductions, in and outside of vodka, will be considered based on the interest and demand of its Members.

AWARD-WINNING CREDENTIALS

Presently, we believe ONE ROQ is the first-of-its-kind, gluten, sulfite and sodium free recipe targeting the growing health and allergy-conscious consumer.

SEASONED LEADERSHIP

Garrett has 15 years of professional startup and marketing experience. Garrett has committed the initial risk capital that has allowed the Company to establish a command of the industry's barriers and architect the Company's differentiated approach to break through.

Future Plans We Look Forward To

New and exciting marketing initiatives are poised to take ONE ROQ where no lifestyle brand has gone before. 

Formal development schedules on these projects are to be announced...

The 384 billion global beverage alcohol market has been undergoing two macro trends: enormous industry consolidation into five international majors and an explosion of small, premium craft brands driven by skilled marketing and consumer demand. As a category, Vodka accounts for approximately 31% of total distilled spirits volume, with the high-end premium vodka growing at just under 11% per annum.  The alcohol beverage market is driven by an increasing shift away from beer and wine towards spirits and in particular premium spirit brands as part of an overall movement towards “high-end” consumption. This macro industry trend has led to the creation of numerous start-up  brands over the last ten years seeking to establish themselves as credible niche players to position themselves as acquisition targets for major industry giants.  This market environment has led to consistent demand by major suppliers to acquire successful niche brands that are able to breakthrough with unique and scalable marketing strategies. Acquisition multiples are observed ranging from  5x to 20x sales with acquisition candidacy triggered at the 30-100k cases per annum in gross sales, which can be referenced in the “Historical Acquisitions” exhibit and diagram.

Market Highlights

  • Vodka maintains a dominant market share among all distilled spirit categories, with a 10+ year track record of continuous positive YOY growth.
  • Vodka is the preferred spirit of consumers for ease of drinking, mixability, and price.  (Source: Discus.org)
  • The total number of vodka consumers in the US is approximately 51M adults.  (Source: IWSR 2018)
  • 40M people on Facebook (alone) have a confirmed interest in vodka, and about three times this number in alcohol as a general interest. (Source: Facebook.com)
  • The global alcoholic beverage industry is recognized as being among select industries able to sustain itself in strong, weak, and uncertain economies. 
  • Until now, the opportunity of owning your own luxury spirits brand was a privilege reserved only to the ultra wealthy. 
  • ONE ROQ aims to build the first premium brand owned and guided by the end-user, whereby creating a new cultural and consumption standard for luxury and lifestyle.

This Historical Industry Acquisition chart is generated internally based on Company research. Potential Investors should be aware of the corresponding Yearly Expenditures that accompany meeting these projections. For more information, refer to the Financial section (Financial Milestones) of this offering.  

The Historical Industry Acquisition trend illustrates that ONE ROQ needs to establish 30-50,000 cases to enter salable territory. Here are some averages we researched below: 

  • Common denominator of break-through brands: 30,000 cases per year
  • Avg. Acquisition Multiples: 5-20x cases sales
  • Avg. Years in operation at sale date: 3.5-4 years
  • Avg. Topline Sales: $10-20 million

ONE ROQ will aim to generate 30,000 cases in sales within 4.5 years, and case sales of 50,000-100,000 cases thereafter.


The Company’s trailing 12 months of operating history since launching the ONE ROQ Vodka Club (ORVC) have established an internal Member Acquisition Cost (MAC) of $77 and an annual Average Member Purchase (AMP) trend of 3 1L bottles per annum per Member (where 1 Member = 1/2 case per year), for the Company’s direct to home business only. Therefore, through its online sales (in home) business solely,  the Company is projecting to spend approximately $4,620,000 to enroll 60,000 Members and generate 30,000 in case sales; $7,700,000 to enroll 100,000 Members and generate 50,000 in cases sales; and $15,400,000 to enroll 200,000 Members and generate100,000 in cases sales. Once again, this model uses the Company’s digital channel solely and does NOT account for contract sales that are expected to be generated through distributors to service “out of home” (bars & restaurants), which represents another 50% of the overall market. For this reason, the Company has conservatively added 3 additional bottles per member to account for these anticipated sales.  Finally, as the Company expands its marketing and becomes more well-known in the market, the Company expects its MAC to decrease and AMP to increase.


MAC(Member Acquisition Cost):  total ad spend divided by total Members enrolled

AMP (Average Member Purchase): total sales divided by total Members


The above projections are only projections and are not a guarantee of future success. These projections assumes the Company will be able to raise the required funding to support the corresponding yearly operating and selling expenditures it needs to generate the required sales velocity (specifically 30,000 + cases annually) through its marketing to achieve a target valuation where investors could expect a return on investment through a brand sale or other liquidity event in the future. These Projections are not a guarantee of future success and projections may change based on factors out of the Company’s control. Even if these projections are reached, there is no guarantee that a strategic exit will occur. Achieving sales velocity will depend on the performance of distribution contracts, online sales campaigns, and Member-contributed sales and promotions to support company goals. Due to the 3-tier system and the unique business model, the Company reserves the right to measure and define performance of distributors and members as potential factors for future sales . Potential growth rates and future corresponding valuation ranges for potential liquidity events are estimated using industry case studies over the last ten years and are not a guarantee of future valuation. Potential Investors should be aware of the corresponding Yearly Expenditures that accompany meeting these projections. The Company’s historical sales and Member Acquisition Costs are used to establish a reasonable basis for generating the target projections if the company is able to meet current and future financing hurdles. For more information, refer to the Financial section of this offering and the Forward Looking Legend in the Terms section.

What makes ONE ROQ mine?

When you invest in ONE ROQ Spirits LLC, you're buying a piece of the company and its brand in the form of equity.  Equity represents a financial interest in the company, which allows you to accept financial rewards as we grow, have a vote in company decision making, and align with the brand on a more intimate level compared to other brands you have bought in the past. More details as to unit holders' votes are included in the Operating Agreement and discussed above. 


What are the commitments of the club?

There are no commitments of the club after you join, but we do hope you find features of the club helpful in supporting the company's mission and growth objectives, such as our 24/7 Concierge, Share The Club, and Carry Request tools.


Why would I join ONE ROQ?

Our commitment to principled drinking and counter-culture ethos is everything. 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. If you enjoy the privilege of alcohol, why not form a deeper relationship with a brand you own, guide and benefit from along the way?


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 will ONE ROQ sponsor / produce?

ONE ROQ will focus on sponsoring and producing events for its members that include social mixers, concerts, sporting events, creative events and even galas. Members will be given VIP access to all events which may include complimentary food and drink. Covid-19 is currently affecting Company event schedules in 2020 but we look forward to evolving this platform in the "Post-Covid" era. 


What laws govern alcohol businesses in the US?

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.

Do I need to invest to buy ONE ROQ?

No, you do not need to invest in ONE ROQ Spirits LLC to buy ONE ROQ Vodka. However, Investing in ONE ROQ Spirits LLC provides you access to all our unique Club Privileges, described above.

What is ONE ROQ's valuation?

What if my store/bar doesn't carry ONE ROQ?

In the future, you can use the ONE ROQ app to submit a Carry Request. Our aim is to place ONE ROQ within 14 days in the retailer of your choice, provided we have active distribution in your market, there is retailer acceptance and Covid-19 is not disrupting the business of your desired retail establishment, bar or restaurant. This app feature is currently in development and available with limited coverage. 


Do I get a discount buying ONE ROQ if I invest?

Yes, as an investor you will receive an Owner/Membership discount of up to 40% product when ordered through ONEROQClub.com.  Discount codes are posted to your Member dashboard monthly. Note, due to Federal and State laws, ONE ROQ cannot guarantee pricing or discounts in the market (i.e., in liquor stores, bars, etc). However, it is acceptable to ask your retailer if they would consider applying an Owner's discount, should they carry the product.

(Note, fulfillment delays may apply based on your location and the status of our distribution in your market.)


Can I get a free sample before I join?

Due to the cost of our product, as well as liquor laws prohibiting free alcoholic goods to consumers, we currently do not offer free samples.


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 continue to improve our margins and pricing.

What is the corporate structure of ONE ROQ and what is the difference between a Membership "Unit" and a "Share" of Stock ? 

ONE ROQ Spirits is currently structured as an LLC and you are purchasing Membership Units in this offering. "Units" are used to describe the measure of ownership when a company's legal structure is a LLC. "Shares" are used to describe the measure of ownership in a C-Corp or an S-Corp. The company will evaluate the advantages of converting to a C-Corp but this is not planned at this time.


For more information, please refer to the SEC guidance in relation to Regulation Crowdfunding investing.

ONE ROQ To Serve At Global Event For Queen's Birthday

20 days ago



ONE ROQ to Mark Queen’s Birthday

ONE ROQ Spirits, makers of ONE ROQ®, has been invited to be featured at major event to mark Queen Elizabeth II’s 95th birthday.  


March 5, 2021. New York, NY. America - This year, royal correspondent Robert Jobson, the International Club for Rolls-Royce & Bentley Enthusiasts (also known as the RREC) and publisher St James’s House will publish a commemorative book to honor the Queen and celebrate the enduring relationship between the British Royal Family and Rolls-Royce Motor Cars. The club’s official launch event will take place in London UK, where the ONE ROQ® luxury spirit will be served.    

Titled ‘Strive for Perfection: The Royal Edition’, this unique publication will tell the compelling story of Queen Elizabeth II and feature some of the world’s finest motor cars. It will also provide members of the RREC with a luxury lifestyle guide that showcases carefully selected brands from around the world – all chosen for their unique editorial fit. 

“We are pleased to share that we have recently accepted an invitation to be featured in ‘Strive for Perfection: The Royal Edition’,” says Garrett Green, Director of ONE ROQ. “ONE ROQ and its original luxury experience through ONEROQClub.com caught the attention of the RREC’s official publisher, St James’s House, and our spirit will be showcased and served at the exhibition and book launch to take place later this year.” The event date, time and location will be announced in the coming months.

“As a luxury American spirits company looking to reinvent what a spirit can be, ONE ROQ was an obvious choice for inclusion in this publication, and the RREC would like to thank ONE ROQ for its support of this project,” says Ian Dorward, CEO of the RREC. 

Copies of the book will be distributed to all members of the RREC and made available to a wider audience of Rolls-Royce and Bentley dealerships around the world. A limited number will also be retailed. 

St James’s House has been an official publisher to the RREC since 2007. It has also produced a range of publications about the British Royal Family including licenced commemorative albums for The Queen’s 90th Birthday Celebration at Windsor Castle and the Thames Diamond Jubilee Pageant.

ONE ROQ Weekly Round Up...

21 days ago


ONE ROQ Weekly Round Up...

It's been just over a full year since the Pandemic beared down on the US. And with Texas and Florida taking lead in a push towards normalization, we are hopeful that freedoms we once new may be just around the corner.  Until then, ONE ROQ will proudly position its brand as a symbol of escape, exclusively to its Member-Investors.

With that shared,  here is this week's round up of Company Updates for ONE ROQ Spirits, makers of ONE ROQ Vodka and ONEROQClub.com. Together, the spirit like no other. 


We've Passed $400k In Investments

In just a week after extending our maximum funding goal (reopening the club), we have already returned to healthy investment flow comprising both new and existing investors. We are looking forward to March 15th where new Reg CF rules will allow for the option to acquire new growth capital as we aim to transition from concept to commercial player in  2021.


Michigan Launch Is Live. Enter Carry Requests Now. 

On March 1, ONE ROQ conducted its General Sales  (Kick Off) Meeting with its Michigan based sales & marketing arm, Benchmark Beverage. The sales team at Benchmark is now live in Michigan introducing ONE ROQ to the trade! By Wednesday March 10th, our Carry Request tool (a white glove placement service for Members) will be activated in the Member dashboard.  Carry Requests and word-of-mouth on retailers will be key to our initial attacks on market. Michigan Members: look out for updates specific to your launch coming soon to your inbox. And don't forget to check out the new "Michigan ROQs SWAG" now available in the Gift Shop.


ONE ROQ Flavors to Return in Spring

2021 Production is currently scheduled for late March/early April and will replenish our ONE ROQ Vodka and ONE ROQ Loganberry inventories to supply our direct-to-home (online sales) and distributor (retail) launch opportunities.  After choosing to post pone the release of additional flavors in the 4th quarter of 2020, we feel optimistic about returning to  introducing one of our limited release flavors this spring!  The mystery flavor is TBA.   


New Privileges Launching Soon

As part of focus to continue to create new and engaging member experiences that will drive value-added growth strategies to the Company, we are planning to unveil two new Club Privileges. One, the activation of the "Vote" as a new open feedback and survey loop for Members to impart insight, opinions and influence on the Company's future activities. And two, a new monthly Member-generated content platform that will allow Members to share stories, content and their professional profiles within the ONE ROQ Members Community via  inclusion in our  public and private monthly newsletter and social channels! More TBA.

An International Recognition To Be Announced

You Are Part of History - SEC Drastically Improves Law For More Opportunity

25 days ago

ONE ROQ Raises a Glass To Congratulate Investors and Partners For Being Part Of US - and Spirits - History

Yesterday, the SEC officially raised the annual funding limits for Reg CF and Reg A+ issuers, drastically improving rules to allow greater access to capital for issuers and more importantly, investment opportunity for investors. The Key Improvements to the regulatory framework includes a significant increase on the annual financing limits from $1.07M to $5M  (for Reg CF issuers) and $50M to $75M (for Regulation A+ issuers).  

As an event, this change marks a landmark legal and cultural shift in the US financial industry, and Democracy at large.  Prior to the Jobs Act,  equity investing in start ups was a privilege reserved only for the wealthiest classes in America. The government's rationale: "protecting average, uneducated people from the risk of early stage investing." And incidentally, the opportunity of them as well. For the first time, people regardless of age, race and income are partaking in investment opportunities that have the real potential of generating life-changing wealth, with as little as $100.00.

"As one of the equity crowdfunding industry's most original and consistently funded spirits start ups, these new rule adjustments will now allow ONE ROQ // ONEROQClub.com to accelerate the growth of its global Membership community and pursue exciting initiatives  that will support our aim of becoming a disruptive player in the US and global vodka category..." states Garrett Green, Founder. "This is also further opportunity for our investors to increase the value to their own investments by continuing to bring more and more of their friends, family and colleagues into the Club."


About ONE ROQ

ONE ROQ Spirits is the maker of ONE ROQ Vodka and the ONEROQClub.com - brand experience re-imagined.  ONE ROQ is currently raising its 2nd Seed Round at. 43c/share.  Investments include an equity stake in the company's financial future and access to the ONE ROQ Club, featuring a suite of Member-only privileges.

A Year In Review | 2020

about 1 month ago



A copy of this update is posted in the Reading Room

2020 caught the world by surprise, forcing  many industries to confront the vulnerabilities and weaknesses of their businesses and business models.  In the alcohol industry, we saw both hardship and boom as Pandemic induced shutdowns shuttered bars & restaurants across the nation, but bolstered bottle sales through liquor stores and e-commerce platforms.  Even so, only staple brands, and unique digitally-savvy brands benefited from these abrupt industry transformations.  We are excited - and humbled -  to share we were one of these unique brands. 

 Key Performance Stats of 2020 

Due to our early stage, and unique business model, the Company uses a variety of factors in which it measures past, current and future performance. It is worthy to note that these figures were achieved during just (7) months of active offering time, and in highly unstable economic conditions created by global Pandemic.

  • 150% increase in sales (includes booked and open orders, and does not account for merchandise) in our first operational year*
  • 50% increase in Club Membership 
  • 166% increase in Member Carry Requests (Total Requests on Accounts compared to prior year)
  • 148% increase in Member Referrals (Members referring new Members to the Club)
  • 45% ($200k) decrease in annual operating losses (total sales minus total expenses)
  • Over $544,123 raised in capital commitments combining prior and current round at a pre-money Company Valuation of $23.2M respectively (a 129% increase in valuation compared to previous round). 

*The first formal year of operations which starts after the completion of the Company's initial funding round


These numbers are prepared on a pro-forma basis with finalized reports to be published through the Company's 2020 Annual Report.

The Company's brand valuation is independently determined by the Company and validated by the market.


2020 Highlights 

Here are some of the key moments that contributed to our successes last year.

Next Steps | Our 2021 Outlook 

We are hard at work finishing year end reporting requirements and mapping our plans to execute bigger and better in the upcoming year. To support these goals, we are planning on conducting a 2021 Prospectus Event by the end of the first quarter which will summarize where we have been, what we are doing and where we want to go. The tenants of the 2021 Outlook include:  Inventory Production, New Hires, Distributor Development, Expansion of Direct to Home (E-Commerce), Carry Request Infrastructure, New B2B Technology,  and the introduction of new, visionary Club Privileges poised to take ONE ROQ where no lifestyle beverage brand has gone before.

We look forward to seeing all of our Members at this upcoming virtual event in planning.


Cheers, 

ONE ROQ Team

ONE ROQ Announces Launch Date of Distribution Agreement with Benchmark of Michigan

2-18-21 San Diego, CA - Today, ONE ROQ® // ONEROQClub.com announces final agreement and launch date with Benchmark of Michigan. The agreement, inked last month, will provide ONE ROQ Vodka passage and comprehensive brand representation throughout the state through Benchmark. Initial inventories are being moved into place for official go-to-market launch activities to begin starting March 1, 2021.  Retailers are encouraged to reserve their inventories by contacting Benchmark, and Members are encouraged to begin spreading the word to their favorite bars, restaurants or retailers,  while also making sure to enter their Carry Requests through the ORVC Member portal, to be serviced by Benchmark agents!

2 months ago


A copy of this update is available in the Reading Room 

ONE ROQ Announces Industry Veterans, John Mulvey and Jack Delaporte to Lead US Distributor Development in 2021

The announcement marks a key milestone as ONE ROQ Vodka Club begins transition from conceptual start up to promising disruptor.

February 2nd, 2021 - Today, ONE ROQ Spirits is announcing John Mulvey and Jack Delaporte, two senior hires, that will lead distribution development in the US for ONE ROQ Vodka and its growing international community of brand owners. The announcement comes hand-in-hand with the Company's announcement to achieve distribution programs in all 50 US states, and more, by 2023.

The target distribution infrastructure is part of the Company's requirement to successfully fulfill the vision of Carry Requests, a white-glove placement service that enables Club Members to have ONE ROQ made available through specific establishments of their choosing in their local markets. 50 States will also allow the Company to expand its e-commerce capability by adding more retailers who can reach more households throughout the country. 

" John Mulvey and Jack  Delaporte have a combined 50 years of successful brand launch and distributor programming experience working for some of the most successful suppliers and distributors in the world," shares Green, CEO/Director.  "Together, their job will be to develop and manage a National distribution network we require to advance our unique strategies and plan. "  


Meet John and Jack 


John Mulvey Bio

LinkedIn

John is a highly demonstrated sales professional with a 35-year track record in driving successful brand introductions and market sales for top supplier brands within the US adult beverage industry.  John began his career as a regional manager at Bacardi Limited, a top 5 global supplier of beverage alcohol, serving from 1990 to 1997. Following, John was recruited by the Kautz Ironstone Vineyards Company where he directed and managed an 8-state mid-west territory overseeing 15 US distributors.  With a burgeoning track record in sales, John was finally hired by Imperial Brands, the US subsidiary of Belvedere SA (France), a top 10 global supplier, to be part of the National Team that led the Sobieski US brand launch to over 1 Million Cases in just 4th years, the fastest brand to reach 1M cases in the US ever.  

John's focus will be in developing, overseeing and managing new distributors, the marketing processes that support the fulfillment of Member Carry Requests, as well as traditional retailer activations.

We are looking forward to working with John to create the same confidence and success he has grown accustomed to creating for world-class brands.

Industry News

Wine & Spirits Off Premise/Online Booming

According to recent reports, Industry Sales of wine, beer and spirits are up across the board with consumers actually continuing to trade up to premium brand purchases; majority of volume is being consumed through off-premise and direct-to-consumer.  Some key quotes were extracted from a recent article that ran with the New York Times on Dec 18th, 2020 summarizing the environment for wine & spirits in 2020. 

"The pandemic has been a boom to retail alcohol sales of all kinds. Beer sales are up, as are those of wine and vodka. Even the lowly vermouth - the anonymous mixer that blends with the name-brand spirits in martinis and Manhattans - has seen a spike in business as consumers substitute drinking at home for visits to local bars or restaurants."

"A trend we see is an accelerated rate of buying premium brands," said Danelle Kosmal, vice president of beverages and alcohol at the research firm Nielsen. "Consumers are trading up and spending more, and it's a trend that's been accelerated since the pandemic started."

"Only spirits - led by vodka - have surpassed their pre-pandemic volume, with overall retail sales up 24 percent since March. Retail sales of wine are up 16.6 percent since the lock-down and 13.4 percent for beer."

ONE ROQ was just called "The Bitcoin of the Adult Beverage Industy"

4 months ago

     

ONE ROQ Vodka was just called 'The Bitcoin of the Adult Beverage Industry' and named a Top 20 Global Instagram Account by LAWire.com

12-2-20 (Los Angeles). Just last month, @ONE ROQ_VODKA was named a 'Top 20 Instagram Account to Follow' alongside the likes of A-list celebrities, Kevin Hart and Cristiano Ronaldo by LAWire.com.  In the same article, LAWire.com  called ONE ROQ the 'Bitcoin of the Adult Beverage industry,'  referring to the decentralized nature of its business model where end-users are also the financial stakeholders, and whom stand to realize the upside benefits should ONE ROQ continue to be adopted by consumers.  

In November, the Company reports another record month in 'direct-to-consumer' sales through ONEROQClub.com, compared to the previous year period, and total membership eclipsed 3,000 total members with new member growth back on pace at 200-300 new members a month.

While ONE ROQ is not a cryptocurrency, nor does it accept or issue ‘crypto’ as a security, the Company agrees that striking similarities between Bitcoin’s democratization of currency and ONE ROQ’s democratization of beverage alcohol are warranted, and should serve as a harbinger for the Company’s future success. 

"This unique recognition by the Los Angeles Wire demonstrates the beginning of percolating cultural adoption of the ONE ROQ brand, an innovation that is naturally satisfying a growing desire by consumers to create more equitable relationships with  the products they consume - an experience that we believe consumers rightfully deserve," states Garrett Green, Founder and Architect of ONE ROQ. “It is a bonus that ONE ROQ also happens to be winning top awards for its taste and design as well.  Given the sheer size of the $300B global beverage alcohol market, a business model that is now past concept stage, and our ‘first-mover’ position with that model, ONE ROQ could easily present  Bitcoin-like growth potential, without the regulatory ceiling.”

The Company congratulates its Members  and looks forward to supporting their gifting and entertaining needs for the fast approaching Holiday season, only at ONEROQClub.com

For Release - ONE ROQ Reports 3rd Consecutive Quarter of Positive Sales

6 months ago



ONE ROQ Luxury Vodka (ONEROQClub.com) reports 3rd consecutive quarter of positive growth in 2020, despite Pandemic, highlighting pioneering business model in adult beverage industry


Oct 9, 2020, San Diego, CA - Today, ONE ROQ Spirits, makers of ONE ROQ Vodka (ONE ROQClub.com), reports its 3rd positive quarter of online sales growth as it runs its first year of operations in Pandemic and industry-wide market transformation. 

“While we have not been immune to the effects of Covid-19, this unprecedented period in the beverage alcohol  market – and US retail as a whole -- has given us the opportunity to observe and validate the positive timing of ONE ROQ and its business approach," states Green, Director.   “While the stage of the company and pandemic should be kept in perspective, we are pleased to report organic community bottle sales were up 366% in the 3rd quarter compared to prior year, not including non-alcohol merchandise sales.” 

ONE ROQ credits its business model for growing sales while providing a superior vodka for the connected and financially minded consumer. It also credits the model for insulating it from becoming another start-up causality of the industry. 

“Traditional beverage company models essentially force sell a year’s worth of inventories into distributors and hope those distributors generate sales to retailers, whereas ONE ROQ’s sales are currently driven and measured directly by the end-user," states Green.  "We believe this brings a new component to the brand valuation model  that we are just beginning to see the potential of. ”   

About ONE ROQ

ONE ROQ reemerged through an innovation pivot in early 2019 and is showing major promise as the industry’s first true technology-enabled, adult beverage company which is shipping to consumers in 42 US states through a network of retail fulfillment partners. The Company offers Members of the ONE ROQ brand world class privileges and digital amenities including real company equity, a 24/7 ordering a gifting concierge, monthly reading content, referral rewards, VIP invites to special events, Members-only discounts, and the potential of future financial reward on  their Membership investment. 

The Company congratulates its Members-Investors and looks forward to supporting their gifting and entertaining needs for the fast approaching Holiday season.

Pending Investments & General Updates

6 months ago

 

Pending Investments & General Updates

If you are an investor in our current offering, it is important to be aware of internal activities that are causing minor delays in our investment and onboarding process. Presently, ONE ROQ is waiting for a routine audit required under Regulation CF to be completed to permit us to accept and finalize your new investments. In the interim, your investments have not yet been withdrawn from your account.

Effects

This minor delay will effect timing to begin marketing and advertising the current Offering/Club to the general public.  This means that ONE ROQ's  current Offering growth is still largely attributed to our current community of investors, their families and their friends.  And this speaks volumes of the confidence of the ONE ROQ community. 

Timing 

Based on recent updates from the Team, it is currently projected that the Audit could complete in approx 2-4 weeks, which will then allow us to confirm and clear your investment, and launch our advertising activity to return to growing Membership.  While this is an estimated time of completion only, we are optimistic of the proposed schedule. 

Our Thoughts

The benefits and restrictions of Regulation CF is still an the infancy stages as a new securities law governed by the SEC. Annual financial review and audit requirements are routinely burdensome to early stage companies trying to keep momentum on their campaigns and business planning. Covid-19 has not helped the processes establish any efficiencies with regards to time and costs required to complete these requirements. However, improvements are around the corner, at least insofar as the allowable raise limits. 

For example, ONE ROQ's second offering is capped at a small $369k due to current maximum thresholds held under Regulation CF. However, it is currently anticipated that new rules will issue by the SEC that will raise the annual 12-month limit from the current $1.07M, up to $5M, with industry advocates demanding Washington ratify as early as by end of year. With that happening, ONE ROQ is extremely confident to be planning in anticipation of these new and likely limits, which will be timely in allowing us to drive sales towards 2021 expectations.

Covid-19 

Last week the media began to confirm Covid-19 case reporting flaws,  as well as amendments to "at risk" persons guidelines, which in our opinion created hope that the US may see Covid-19 market effects begin to dissipate towards and after the conclusions of the US election.  Whether this plays out accordingly or not, however,  relevance of the US and global beverage alcohol market will continue to be defined by consumers who are now using liquor store and online solutions for a majority of their consumption needs. With regards to the latter, ONE ROQ plans to become novel and even dominate through forthcoming campaigns that are in development. 

While online continues to be a "blue ocean" of opportunity for ONE ROQ, we also continue to recognize the importance of being available at retail through local bars and restaurants requested by Members using the Carry Request tool. At the same time, we expect Covid to continue to play a major factor in retail & distributor participation. To counteract these effects, new investments are being planned into Carry Request  & distributor onboarding processes to speed and optimize the value of this platform and its strategic purpose.  Simply, the Carry Request concept is there, but the infrastructure to optimize the platform has months of building ahead.  A nation-wide distributor network, inventory to fill pipeline, new staffing, and a raise on the maximum investment limits of our offerings are part of the plan for 2021.

In the meantime, we are focused on the completion of the audit in progress so we can finalize & accept our latest investments, return to perk issuance schedules, and begin battling for (in-home) market share against industry giants for the fast approaching holiday months. 


Cheers, 

The ONE ROQ Team

ONE ROQ is a superior drinking vodka from America, and our brand membership platform is already redefining marketing in the adult beverage industry.  A superior taste, exclusive Club privileges, and the focus of future financial reward are the hallmarks offered to our connoisseur investors. ONE ROQ’s slogan says it all: Own Your Spirit.  And its when we embrace both sides of its meaning that our destiny will be realized. 

ONE ROQ's approach has earned important credibility in just the last year from sponsorships at top media events like ESPN’s X Games;  to cover story of the Food & Beverage industry; to rising as the No. 1 selling vodka on a top 20 online  US retailer of premium wine & spirits!  And if you are ONE ROQ Member, your initial investment is already realizing attractive growth at the earliest stage of the company’s journey.

With our working business model in place, we are proud and excited to continue building our sales, marketing partnerships, new products and Club features through Offering II.  

So, let’s raise a glass, and fly together.     


Cheers, 

J. Garrett Green, Director & The ONE ROQ Team

Important Company Updates

Congratulations. Early-movers set the tone with $200k+ committed in in just our first few weeks. Congrats to existing Member upgrades, and welcome new Members!  

Investment Processing.  We are currently waiting for an Audit to complete in order to accept investments and  begin advertising the  offering to the Public. Current estimates from the team are 3-4 weeks but this timeline could extend. We are working everyday to speed the process to the extent we can. 

Offering Progress.  We've raised in 2 weeks what it took our first offering to raise in 3 months, and without advertising to the public. That is community strength and we believe its only going to get stronger. Note, current offering growth is currently still exclusive to the immediate community and their referrals until our audit is complete,  investments can be accepted, and we begin advertising to the public.  Lets keep momentum by continuing to share the Club with friends, families and colleagues.  

Offering Cap of $369k is currently due to our annual raise maximum set by the  SEC.  It is anticipated a new Reg CF $5M annual raise maximum could be approved by SEC by the end of the 1st quarter.  When it does, ONE ROQ plans to increase its offering maximum accordingly to increase its sales and marketing activity. 

ORVC Carry Request fulfillment in distributed markets remains delayed from recovering retail sector but expected to resume Q1, 2021.

Community Initiatives: we’re getting our home bars and gifting ideas ready for a ONE ROQ Holiday Season! Growing online sales via ONEROQClub.com, new products and holiday campaigning will lead Company and Member growth in the 4th quarter. 

New Launches 

  • ONE ROQ launches public facing Gift store on ONEROQClub.com home page, allowing the public and Prospective Members to purchase and outfit themselves with select ONE ROQ lifestyle apparel and gifts. The decision was made to expand ONE ROQ's advertising and merchandise sales. Extended catalog items remains exclusive to Members at up to 40% discount. 
  • ONE ROQ partners with boutique Cocktail Mixer brand, Fever Tree, to offer premium cocktail mixers  to its current product offerings as a convenient "add-on" to its budding direct to home business for Members.

Key Marketing Partnerships set to highlight exciting 2021/2022 outlook. Details expected in upcoming community webinar.

ONE ROQ Vodka Announces Its Second Offering To Expand Innovative Business Model and Company Sales. Early Investors Receive Bonus Rewards Through Aug 31. 

San Diego, CA. Aug 19, 2020 - Yesterday, ONE ROQ Spirits, makers of ONE ROQ American luxury vodka, announced its 2nd SEC registered Public Offering to continue to expand its category pioneering Lifestyle and Membership platform, ONEROQClub.com.  Early investors are invited to take advantage of bonus rewards being offered through Aug 31.

"We just reopened the Club for Membership and are elated by the support  of the community in just the first 24 hours,"  states Garrett Green, Founder.

The global beverage alcohol market is valued at over 300B, with Vodka presenting 30% of spirits market consumption, making it the drink of choice by hard alcohol consumers.  Despite Covid-19, industry acquisitions continue to highlight attractive exit values. Just this week, Ryan Reynolds’s Aviation Gin was acquired for $610M by Diageo, the world’s largest spirits producer. 

“These acquisitions typically benefit very small groups of wealthy investors backing them, while the consumers who buy and build the brand receive nothing,” states Green. “ONE ROQ is recognizing the full value of the end-user and inviting them in to enjoy an epic journey of privilege and reward."

In recent months, Covid-19 bar and restaurant shutdowns and shelter in place mandates have caused online alcohol to surge, an opportunity, the Company states, "to introduce ONE ROQ’s experience to more and more vodka drinkers."

The Company plans to use proceeds from the new offering to grow its community of members,  increase sales, commence new partnerships, and introduce exciting marketing initiatives that will continue to drive company value for investors and position the company for future success.
