Black Rock Spirits values products that are fun and interesting, but above all high-quality.
We know that we could skimp on costs, produce a vodka that’s made with the cheapest commodity grains out there (like 95% of the vodka on the market), or import a tequila that’s not 100% agave, but we think you’d notice if we did. We don’t think you have to be serious all the time about what you’re drinking, or aspire to be a rock star by buying a $20 shot of booze. But we do think that quality matters. We think you’ll taste the difference without having to pay an exorbitant price for that quality.
Black Rock Spirits was started in 2008 by three good friends from Seattle. We’re a small growing company without the huge budget of the mass-market brands, but we strive to make your experience with us the best. Please don’t hesitate to email us with any questions or comments!

The Story of Our Brands Bakon Vodka - 100% Potato, Bacon-flavored Vodka The idea for Bakon Vodka came on a camping trip with friends in the summer of 2006. At the time there were a number of flavored spirits, but almost all of them were sweet. We thought that a savory bacon-flavored vodka would work great in a Bloody Mary. After almost two years of testing, trying it out with friends and bartenders, and going through all of the regulatory hurdles we sold our first bottle of Bakon Vodka in May 2008. It's now available in 45 states and 5 countries, and has has been used in winning recipes at national cocktail competitions and has taken the Gold medal in a number of international competitions. It was rated 93 Points by Tasting Panel Magazine.
Sparkle Donkey Tequila - 100% Agave Tequila We have been tequila fans for decades - it was our go-to drink among friends for as long as we can remember. Black Rock Spirits found a unique opportunity to partner with a boutique distillery in the town of Tequila, Mexico. We wanted to come up with a high-quality 100% agave tequila using traditional techniques... but without all of the "traditional" heritage marketing. Launched in September 2012, it has already won numerous awards including the Gold medal at BTI International (rated 93 points).
