"I have character in my face - it's taken an awful lot of late nights and drinking to put it there."
Humphrey Bogart

Bogart's Spirits Gold Award 2018

An iconic character

Blessed with character - infused with a timeless sophistication.

Humphrey Bogart is an international icon. The American Film Institute named him the greatest male screen legend of all time. In addition to being the Oscar-winning star of such classic films as Casablanca and The Maltese Falcon, he was a true renaissance man. Bogart won many sailing races while captaining his beloved Santana yacht. He was a scratch golfer. He was a tournament director for the U.S. Chess Federation, and once played leading grandmaster Samuel Reshevsky to a draw. Humphrey Bogart lived a legendary romance with his wife, the beautiful Lauren Bacall, and they made four films together. Known for his impeccable fashion sense, Bogart remains a style icon. And, before Frank Sinatra, Humphrey Bogart was the original center of the legendary Rat Pack, which was so named by Lauren Bacall. Last but not least, Bogie always spoke up for what was right, and he had no tolerance for phonies.

Humphrey Bogart appreciated the finer things in life. And that included the perfect cocktail. Whether he was sailing the Santana, playing chess, or winding down from a day on the set or a round of golf, Bogart liked to have a drink.

John Paul DeJoria's ROK Drinks has teamed with the Humphrey Bogart Estate to create a collection of spirits that pays tribute to a true icon. Complex in character, abundant in taste, smooth in nature, with a sharpness like no other: Bogart’s is a brand that would make the man himself proud.


"Never trust a man who doesn't drink"

Small Batch, hand-crafted distilled with Italian juniper berries, vine ripened cucumber, corriander, lavender, macadamia nuts and citrus zests.

Only the highest quality, hand-picked ingredients.

Incredibly smooth and complex Juniper forward with Spruce tips and a crisp cilantro taste that finishes in a round full back note of macadamia and peppery lime. Sophisticated yet natural, Bogart'’s Gin is perfect over ice, with Tonic or in a Dirty Gin Martini. Flawless with a slice of Orange or English Cucumber.


"Things are never so bad they can't be made worse"

Bogart's truly artisanal, small-batch American Rum is distilled with the finest "Fancy" grade raw molasses, delivering rich, exceptional flavors in every sip.

This crystal clear white Rum has a remarkably smooth, clean finish, boasting aromas of light caramel and citrus zests.

An outstanding combination of soft, well-rounded favors, including almond and coconut, make this an exceptionally well crafted rum, the star on any occasion. Enjoy Bogart's Rum neat, on the rocks, or in your favorite cocktail.

Bogart's Vodka

"The whole world is three drinks behind"

Made from the highest quality American grains and distilled 7 times, Bogart's Vodka matches the quality of the legendary man it represents. Column Distilled in small batches and filtered down to 1 micron.

This fine artisan spirit is distilled to satisfy the most discerning taste.

Unbelievably smooth and clean with a silky dry, yet light fruity body and peppery spice accented finish. A truly, tasty balanced Vodka.

Bogart's Irish Whiskey

"I defend my American right to take a drink when I feel like it."

A blended Irish whiskey, made with Irish single malt and grain whiskeys, matured for at least 3 years in ex-bourbon American oak casks.

Sip neat or with a few drops of water.

Spice and fruit notes mingle on the nose along with strong flavors of honey, simple syrup and graham crackers show in this lively Irish spirit.

Full of character

Blessed with character - infused with a timeless sophistication.

“The only point in making money is, you can tell some big shot where to go.”

“Acting is like sex: You either do it and don’t talk about it, or you talk about it and don’t do it. That’s why I’m always suspicious of people who talk too much about either.”

“The only thing you owe the public is a good performance.”

“I’ve been around a long time. Maybe the people like me.”

“A hot dog at the ballpark is better than steak at the Ritz.”

“I always cry at weddings – especially my own.”

“I defend my American right to take a drink when I feel like it.”

ROK Stars Launch Bogart’s Irish Whiskey

The partnership between John Paul DeJoria’s ROK Drinks and the Humphrey Bogart Estate now features Gin, Vodka, Rum, and Irish Whiskey
ROK Stars PLC, the consumer goods and environmental technologies development company founded by John Paul DeJoria and Jonathan Kendrick announce the addition of a limited edition Irish Whiskey into the Bogart’s Spirits portfolio.
The iconic actor Humphrey Bogart enjoyed a good cocktail, and he made a lot of legendary observations about drinking. One of Bogart’s famous quotes, “I defend my American right to take a drink when I feel like it,” is now featured on the label of a limited-edition Irish whiskey from Bogart Spirits.
Bogart Spirits is a partnership between the Humphrey Bogart Estate and ROK Drinks that produces the award-winning Bogart’s Gin, Bogart’s Rum, and Bogart’s Vodka at its California craft distillery, and now Bogart’s Irish Whiskey will complete the product line-up.
ROK Drinks co-founder Jonathan Kendrick says of Bogart’s Whiskey: “This is a truly special Irish whiskey. We know connoisseurs will find it worthy of the Bogart name. And as with our other spirits, each bottle will feature the iconic Bogart image, one of his authentic quotes, and his signature engraved in the glass.”
Bogart Estate CEO Robbert de Klerk explained why the two children of iconic Hollywood couple Humphrey Bogart and Lauren Bacall are so enthusiastic about the addition of Bogart’s Irish Whiskey: “While Humphrey Bogart enjoyed all spirits, it’s fair to say he had a special place in his heart for gin and whiskey. Now that we’re adding Bogart’s Irish Whiskey, our product offering really feels complete. When I discussed adding whiskey with Stephen Bogart, he told me about the many weekends he spent sailing with his dad on Bogart’s beloved Santana yacht. When people asked Bogie what made the boat go so fast, the original Rat Pack founder always gave the same answer: ‘Whiskey.’
The Bogart’s Irish Whiskey will be available from November 1st, 2017 and will retail for the suggested price of $35 and will be available for purchase at several retailers and online.

Humphrey Bogart Estate and ROK Stars Expand Partnership and Prepare for U.S. Launch

ROK Drinks and Bogart Estate have acquired a California distillery and are growing their drinks portfolio

Los Angeles - July 20th, 2016 ROK Stars PLC, the consumer products company co-founded by U.S. billionaire John Paul DeJoria and U.K. entrepreneur Jonathan Kendrick, is expanding its partnership with the Humphrey Bogart Estate, which is managed by Robbert de Klerk and Stephen Bogart, son of Humphrey Bogart and Lauren Bacall.

Two years ago, ROK and the Bogart Estate created Bogart Spirits and launched Bogart’s Gin internationally. The success of that launch convinced the partners of two things: before its U.S. launch, Bogart Spirits needed to acquire its own distillery and grow its product line.

ROK Stars CEO Jonathan Kendrick explained: “The demand we saw internationally, combined with the U.S. pre-orders, made it clear that we needed our own dedicated distillery to guarantee supply. And since we’re building a brand dedicated to an American film icon, it seemed only right that our distillery should be in California. Our fantastic Bogart’s Vodka will now join our Bogart’s Gin, and we are planning to further expand our product offerings in the relatively near future. Let’s just say that a drink Bogart would have loved is aging as we speak.”

The new Bogart distillery is operated by award-winning Master Distiller Lee Palleschi, former owner and creator of the Cold House Vodka brand. In addition to bringing production home to California, Bogart Spirits has upgraded the Bogart’s bottle. The new custom-made bottle features an image of Humphrey Bogart, silk-screened labels, a great Bogart quote, and Mr. Bogart’s signature engraved on the back of the bottle. John Paul DeJoria, co-founder of Patron Tequila, said: “This is a premium product in every sense of the word. The gin and vodka are absolutely perfect, and the bottle looks fantastic. We are very proud of our Bogart brand!”

"We couldn’t be more pleased about our partnership," said Stephen Bogart. "The international launch has been wonderful, the new bottle is great, and I am especially thrilled that we have brought our production back to the United States. My father loved this country, and the fact that we are lucky enough to be able grow our company and create jobs here is a wonderful thing.”

Bogart Estate CEO Robbert de Klerk added the following: “Jonathan and John Paul are great partners. They truly understand what Humphrey Bogart stood for, and they have created a company we can all be proud of: a premium U.S.-based spirits company that pays tribute to an American icon.”

Iconic spirits, crafted from the finest ingredients, distilled with expertise and infused with a timeless sophistication.
