Ogden, Utah, MARCH 18, 2020 – Ogden’s Own, the largest independent distillery in the state of Utah, officially announced today that the company will forego all profits made in the months of March and April 2020 and donate 100% of the proceeds to local staff members and employees of Utah’s bar and restaurant community.
“Ogden’s Own is, above all else, a local business. Restaurants and bars are the fabric of our community and the backbone of our spirits brands. These are places where people come together over cocktails and share camaraderie, celebration and lifelong memories. None of these moments of togetherness would be possible without the efforts of our talented bartenders, chefs and service workers, which is exactly why we are passionate about having their back,” said Steve Conlin, CEO and co-founder of Ogden’s Own. “In these difficult and uncertain times, it’s our hope that our efforts can contribute to supporting those whose livelihood is affected by business closures and restrictions, and inspire other companies to do the same.”
Throughout the duration of the COVID-19 outbreak, Ogden’s Own will work with business partners and key local representatives across Utah to allocate and distribute the brand’s profits, as well as identify additional ways that the distillery can support the local community.
Ogden’s Own produces a highly popular range of distilled spirits including Five Wives Vodka, Madam Pattirini Gin, Underground Herbal Spirits and the Porter’s line of flavored and unflavored whiskeys. The company is currently underway on construction for its new distillery facility, slated to open this spring.
