Our dream was to produce a spirit with the purest, freshest, and most sustainable ingredients,
but we just weren’t satisfied with the current industry standards. It became our goal to travel
the world in search of the best, and along that way, we were inspired to give back to the
planet, and the people we met, through the practices we learned.
We’re proud to create spirits for those inspired to do better for themselves, and the planet.
The search for the perfect ingredients was spirited and full of adventure. Follow our
to create a better-tasting spirit that’s better for the environment.
We know you’ll love drinking it as much as we loved making it.
MARK ANDERSON CEO & FOUNDER
KRISTEN ANDERSON CO-FOUNDER
Drake’s founders, Mark and Kristen Anderson, both grew up on Midwestern farms,
where they learned the importance of true organic farming, and developed their
love of animals.
Our roots in farming allowed us to
notice a void within the current industry landscape, along with a lack of
farming practices that we truly believe in. The idea to create a spirit that
the market and tasted unlike any other was born.
We knew we couldn’t settle for what was in front of us, so we decided to travel to the ends of the earth
to find the best.
We traveled from Thailand,
throughout South America, and ended up in the Cauca Valley of Colombia. This is
where Drake’s Cane Sugar grows fruitfully with no intervention besides the fresh
water of the Andes Mountains.
To make a product you truly believe in, you need to set higher standards, and that’s exactly
did. We took on the local practices of the Cauca Valley, growing, and distilling the cane
zero fertilizers, pesticides, or artificial flavors and colors. We knew then, we didn’t want
great-tasting spirit, we wanted to turn the industry on its head.
We care about what’s in your glass. We’re proud to be the first and only spirit brand that
