I reflect on the passing of a guest of the show, Joe Fee, and am reminded of the importance of doing those things that are important while there is still time.
Listen in as I talk with Joe Free. Joe is the co-owner, along with his sister Ellen Fee, of Fee Brothers—purveyors of cocktail mixes, bitters, and cordial syrups. Joe talks about the amazing story behind their family’s business. Founded in 1863, the company has endured fires, prohibition, untimely deaths, and a host of other challenges to become the nation’s leading provider of cocktail ingredients.
Joe shares the company’s colorful history, how it survived prohibition, and the steps he and Ellen had to take to drive their business to become the go-to drink ingredients for bartenders the world over.
Check out The Fee Brothers website to learn more about the company and to get in touch with Joe.
