There's more to life than spirits. No, really there is. Beyond our passion for distilling the perfect pour, we hold some worthy causes close to our hearts. Whether it's an organisation doing great things, or a local partner that has made our journey all the more special, here are the people (and pooches) that make it all worthwhile.

We adore spirits and animals in equal measure. Both in our name, and our nature, it seems only proper to dedicate a part of our mission to our local dog rescue and animal adoption organizations in Jersey City. A portion of profits from every bottle sold are donated to help support these brilliant non-profit groups — so go ahead and have another cocktail, you'll be making a difference with every sip!
SEE SPOT RESCUED
See Spot Rescued has a single purpose: to provide a permanent loving home for every homeless dog. They focus on saving dogs from high kill shelters, no matter their age, breed, or health, and no matter what they need – they will be cared for. Their mission is to find each of these dogs a lifetime companion who will provide them eternal unconditional love.
LIBERTY HUMANE SOCIETY
Through public Wellness Clinics, Humane Education programs, and surrender prevention services, LHS’s goal is to reduce the number of animals who enter shelters and provide a higher quality of care for animals in homes. They give the members of our community the tools they need to take ownership for the treatment of animals, both in and out of the shelter system.
JERSEY CITY COMMUNITY PROGRAMS
They say charity begins at home, and we couldn't agree more. Which is why we're committed to helping the incredible communities surrounding us in Jersey City flourish.
Beyond sponsoring local art and culture, parks, meal support, and small business initiatives, our Corgi team volunteers its time to help all manner of local causes. Why? Because much like a fine cocktail with a friend, experiences are more meaningful when they're shared.
COMMUNITY FOOD BANK OF NEW JERSEY
Feeding over one million residents each year, CFBONJ nourishes people with food and hope. We're privileged to support its great work, serving deserving communities in our home state of NJ.
For over 20 years, Pro Arts has been a catalyst for local artists to work together. It is dedicated to weaving the arts into the fabric of city life with endeavours that stimulate entertain, and educate the public, while promoting artistic excellence among its members.
JERSEY CITY PARKS COALITION
There's something about green open spaces that lift minds and spirits. The Jersey City Parks Coalition is dedicated to empowering local city dwellers to develop, renovate, and enjoy their community parks and public spaces. The more we get outside into the green, the better the health of our communities, neighborhoods, and ourselves. Sounds like a win-win to us.
Jersey City is a marvelously diverse and inclusive community, and Hudson Pride helps to foster that wonderful dynamic here. Through the resources, guidance, programs, and opportunities they provide, they have created a home and voice for our LGBTQ community and allies, creating safe and vibrant spaces to gather and celebrate our lives.
JERSEY CITY OFFICE OF CULTURAL AFFAIRS
If you head over to Corgi HQ, you'll be greeted by a magnificent mural featuring the brilliant brushstrokes of local artist Hellbent. In collaboration with the Mural Arts Program, this exclusive piece for Corgi Spirits shows our support of the phenomenal Cultural Affairs Office, which helps Jersey City stay unique and expressive.

JERSEY CITY FOOD TRUCKS
In our opinion it doesn't get much better than a stiff cocktail and some stellar street food. The NJ Food Truck Association has come on leaps and bounds over the past few years, and we're proud to work with the many sensational vendors who serve their specialties straight from the hatch. Expect to see a rotating array of JC's best truck vendors on our distillery lot, so you can tuck in while you wash it down with a glass of the good stuff.
