How does your product embody the changes you want to see in your industry?

Odd Society is about experimentation, embracing change and celebrating our individual and collective oddities.

This philosophy extends to our ideas about distilling.

From the subtle and discrete Wallflower Gin to the raw and untamed Mongrel, our family of spirits is meant to fill a society and celebrate the diversity and uniqueness of the Odd Society community.

This is a vast industry and you need to find ways to stand out in the crowd and many brands do not celebrate their individuality.
