At Common Ritual, we’re on a mission to discover and bottle extraordinary whiskies and tell the stories of those who produce them.

We partner with distilleries led by underrepresented visionaries and their allies.

As a non-distilling producer (NDP), we can make a meaningful impact in the lives of underrepresented distilleries and their communities.


By helping tell their stories, we can bring wonderful whiskey you might have overlooked to your lips and create a more inclusive and sustainable whiskey industry.

People on a Deck



We believe that whiskey transcends borders and brings people together.


That's why we are more than just a spirits brand - we are a platform for shared experiences and a celebration of diverse traditions.


Our core values of inclusivity, diversity, and equity reflect our commitment to honoring the voices and cultures that shape our world.

Inclusivity and Diversity

We extend a warm invitation to all — valuing diversity, equity, and inclusion as fundamentals of our ethos.

Sustainability and Social Responsibility

We prioritize partnerships with those committed to restoring communities through environmentally responsible practices — aspiring to be a positive force in our society and our planet.

Partnership and Unity

We embrace stewardship — working collaboratively with partners to elevate successes and foster mutual growth.

Tradition and Innovation

We honor the legacy of tradition while boldly exploring new frontiers — crafting exceptional spirits that embody the best of both worlds.
