The Farmers on Our Labels

by St. Augustine Distillery

We try to support everything local.  Local illustrator Jenna Alexander drew our farmers (Francisco & Mike) and Jared Swafford a local graphic designer designed our labels.

Citrus The Rogers Family

One of the founding growers in the world famous Indian River Citrus District, The Rogers family has been growing grapefruit in Florida since 1928. Red grapefruit, flame grapefruit and white grapefruit along with tangerines and oranges are produced on 7,000 acres of land. Florida produces the world’s finest grapefruit. The tropical climate and rich soil produce a fruit that is juicier and sweeter than any other. The uncommon quality of our citrus is attributed to the unique soil as well as the geologic and weather conditions of the Indian River Citrus District. We work closely with the Rogers family to procure Florida’s highest quality citrus blossoms and tree ripened citrus.
