The Idea of Grog
Most people do not have a libation based on how a spirit is or is not made. They drink on the taste, the party in the bottle, and the attitude, fun, adventure, and camaraderie that goes with it! Ours is not a rum, whisky, vodka, or liqueur, but rather a specialty spirit. The use of grain based alcohol, the distillation steps and processing parameters used to achieve a high quality spirit, the over saturation of the flavored vodka market, and the overall lack of desire for another liqueur on the store shelves and bar backs, drove us to come up with something new. Grog refers to many different alcoholic beverages throughout the world.
Australia – Grog is any alcoholic beverage Sweden – Common description of drinks not made to a recipe, typically just one kind of spirit, commonly vodka, cognac, or eau de vie, and one kind of non-alcoholic beverage. Fiji – Drink made by pounding sun-dried kava root into fine powder and mixing it with water. Origin according to Wikipedia: Rum and water mixed with limes and given to sailors of the Royal Navy.
Practical translation of the origin: Alcohol of poor quality from various sources (after all, a bunch of drunken sailors didn’t care if their alcohol was derived from sugarcane, grain, or potatoes) then diluted with stagnant water so they had to add citrus to make it palatable. One would think that with the history and allure of grog, we would find bottles from the domestic market washed up on beaches everywhere. You cannot find one because there are none! With the ships of Blackbeard, Bluebeard, and even Captain Jack Sparrow, grog has sailed the world keeping crews together and a wench within arms reach. A drink for the ages that spans the equator from end to end. Grog has been made many ways by many a barkeep, but we have stumbled upon a unique recipe from pirates of the Northwest. We distill to a high quality spirit, dropping out the impurities for a clean, unrivaled taste; we age with charred oak; and we sweeten with blue agave, nectar from the gods themselves. Ours is an original Grog for Pirates, Playboys, and Partiers alike! We are the
Party In A Bottle…. With attitude!
Production starts with a high quality neutral grain spirit feed stock. All spirits are treated with a weathered, time-proven, natural process learned while sharing libations with Russian sailors, one of which was the skipper of a nuclear submarine, in the Bering Sea. We’d give you more details, but it’s classified. (Yes, that’s all true. Well at least everything but the information being classified, but we’re still not going to tell you the processing details.) After initial treatment, the spirits are distilled in a not-so-traditional pot still. The recovered distillate is then used as the feed for the 3 different products. Primary distillate is treated with an additional processes learned over the course of 15 years experience in beverage and industrial alcohol production and redistilled for production of Dog Watch Vodka
