A Wisconsin Tradition

Early in 2001, I was talking to a friend of mine about how I couldn’t find a good “Old Fashioned” cocktail at a bar or from a mix. My friend shared with me a recipe that she used. I tried it and thought it was pretty good. After a few changes I tried out the recipe on friends and family.

It wasn’t very long and people were asking me to make it for them to use at home or for gifts. In 2010 the requests were coming so often that I went to see my cousin at Kerrigan Brothers Winery about bottling the mix. He told me what I needed to do to make this venture work and in early December 2010 we started to bottle “Gary’s Old Fashion Mix”. It is starting to take off and we are now working on other flavors for our citrus loving friends.

“Gary’s Old Fashion Mix” is non-alcoholic. We hope that you enjoy it as much as we do.
