KNOW YOUR BOUNDARIES. Always drink responsibly.
Born on the border of the Plum Orchard and Little Woods neighborhood lines of New Orleans, Seven Three Distilling Co.'s owner Jeff Rogers has always had roots in New Orleans and southern Louisiana. Early on he found his passion on the Pearl River and wanted to promote those experiences of Louisiana's natural canvas with visitors from all over the world. What started as a one man, one boat operation became Cajun Encounters, the area's foremost respected leader in swamp experiences and eco-tourism. Along the way, what were everyday conversations with locals on the back bayous became the foundation for a new way to share the unique culture of our city and region. Winks and nods to what may lie under tarps in flat boats to stories of meetings by Whiskey Tree generations ago (and maybe still every so often) ignited another venture to navigate the murky waters of distilling. With nods to the famous 73 neighborhoods of New Orleans, Jeff, with his wife Mary Anna at his side, created Seven Three Distilling Co. and its upscale brands including Irish Channel Whiskey, Gentilly Gin, St. Roch Vodka, and Bywater Bourbon.
Mary Anna co-founded Seven Three with her husband, Jeff. Inspired by a distillery visit during a family vacation, she returned home to New Orleans determined to create local spirits — a natural extension of her deep experience in the hospitality business as co-owner of Pelican New Orleans and its brands, Cajun Encounters, New Orleans Legendary Walking Tours and Audubon Coach. Today, Mary Anna helps oversee the team and create a world-class distillery and tourism experience for Seven Three visitors.
She’s a near-New Orleans native, having grown up in Ocean Springs, Mississippi, and settled in nearby Slidell, Louisiana, after college. Mary Anna’s grandmother lived near City Park, which meant plenty of visits and Mardi Gras memories. Now officially a local, she enjoys life away from Seven Three and Pelican New Orleans by spending family time with Jeff and their three kids, shopping and traveling — yet no matter how far and wide she journeys, she still hasn’t found food that compares to her fair city’s incredible offerings. And when it’s time to wind down, she’s particularly partial to a fresh St. Roch Vodka and soda. Extra lime, please.
Luka Čutura began his distilling career at Seven three Distilling Co. learning from peers in the industry while also completing continuous education via American Distilling Institute mentors such as Nancy Fraley and more. Luka’s family hails from northern Croatia and Bosnia in which they cultivated corn and wheat while also overseeing vineyards where wine making and distilling spirits became part of the family’s culture. His father emigrated to the United States in 1973 and settled in southern Louisiana becoming an oysterman. Joining his father in the oyster business, Luka also made his impact felt sharing his love of the Louisiana swamps by giving tours to visitors as a captain for Cajun Encounters Swamp Tours. Quickly gaining a reputation for his vast knowledge of the marsh and personable service, Luka pivoted to distilling spirits bringing that same passion and love of our region into every product.
