About.png

That’s right, at a time when a Black man could hardly walk into a “white” bar, I was the reigning king. I was not only allowed IN the bar, but people came to the bar FOR me – in order to sample my cocktails, shake my hand, and get me to sign my book for them. (Actually, I was the first Black American to publish a cocktail recipe book.)

In 1917, I published “The Ideal Bartender,” one of the most influential cocktail recipe books of all time.

I realized a few things behind the bar:
1. Superb cocktails inspire all types of people to congregate. 
2. Being a true Tastemaker is about breaking down preconceived ideas, and bringing new flavors together.
3. The same is true for bringing people together.

In the 1910s, I was one of the world’s most influential bartenders, tending bar at the prestigious St. Louis Country Club, wowing fans - including presidents - with my signature cocktails. Some people even say that I “wrote the book” on cocktail recipes.  (And that’s not far from the truth.)

BUILDING ON MY PREDILECTION (and my fame) for accenting bourbon cocktails with orange peels set aflame, I have crafted a bourbon like no other: smooth, 4 years old, bottled in Kentucky and kissed with the sweet, smoky, caramelized grace of burnt orange rind.
So, making my CELEBRATED COCKTAIL is A SNAP.
JUST ADD a touch of sugar and Angostura Bitters.

So, making my SIGNATURE COCKTAIL could not BE SIMPLER.  All you need is a dash of sugar and a squeeze of lime.
AS PROOF OF MY IMPECCABLE TASTE, my Old Tom Gin is imported from a two-centuries-old London distiller. And, in keeping with my reputation for creating distinctive cocktails with exotic fruit, my gin is delicately infused with the peel of a curious Chinese citrus called “Sweet Lime.”
