FUN HISTORY ABOUT HOW WE CAME UP
WITH THE NAME: BLIND PIG SPIRITS
The term “Blind Pig” originated in the United States in the nineteenth century; it was applied to lower-class establishments that sold alcoholic beverages illegally. The operator of an establishment (such as a saloon or bar) would charge customers to see an attraction (such as an animal) and then serve a “complimentary” alcoholic beverage, thus circumventing the law of prohibition.
Meet The Owners Behind Blind Pig Spirits
Lesa is the guru when it comes to marketing and promoting Blind Pig Spirits. Did you hear about us on Facebook, Yelp, Twitter, or some other social media site? Well, you can thank Lesa for that! You can find her behind the counter almost every Friday, 11AM to 7pm, and occasional weekends throughout the month.
You’ll catch Ray in the distillery at least every other weekend and once in a while through the week if he’s in building or fixing something. He is very informative about the mashing and fermentation process, so if you are curious about it, ASK next time you come in!
You’ll catch Fred in the tasting room every other weekend, and occasionally mid week running the stills. Fred has a chemistry background, so he’s always full of fun facts! Fred, along with his wife, (Deb), created our formula for “Oly Gin”!
