James Beard Award-winning chef Andy Ricker of Portland, Oregon’s Pok Pok created Som to enhance his highly acclaimed bar program, believing bold and complex flavors should be experienced through both food and drink. Founded in 2012, Som celebrates the intersection of discerning craft cocktail enthusiasts and alcohol free beverages.
“More and more, people are looking for diversity in drink options that are complex, experiential, and deliver a wide array of flavors - without alcohol. They don’t want to compromise taste, atmosphere, or experience, whether they are choosing to drink alcohol or not. Som offers patrons the option of having a zero-proof drink with an experience equal to the one they'd get if they were ordering a well-made cocktail: a high-quality brand, balanced sophisticated flavor, and thoughtful craft from the bartender.” - Chef Andy Ricker, Creator of Som
The signature serve is a Som & Soda - one part Som to four parts soda water. It's fresh and sophisticated, ideal for any setting that calls for a non-alcoholic beverage with complexity and bite. Som can also be combined in spirit-based drinks to create adventurous, fresh, and flavorful cocktails.
