It started with a passion and a pandemic.
It led to an understanding and conviction.
Welcome back to the Roaring 20s
Blind Tiger's founder story is rooted in the spirit of the Prohibition era, where people gathered at speakeasies to enjoy drinks that were otherwise banned. Rebecca Styn, founder of Erie, PA's Room 33 Speakeasy, brought her passion for this time to life by creating a sophisticated cocktail experience that captures the defining flavors of the era, with or without the alcohol.
When the pandemic hit in 2020, the speakeasy was forced to provide only sans-alcohol drink options to-go, and the team rose to the challenge to create a top-notch spirit-free cocktail that mirrors the flavors of the original. As a result, Blind Tiger was born - an all-inclusive luxury drink that lets you feel part of the occasion with or without alcohol.
Named after the Prohibition-era speakeasies that had to keep a low profile to avoid detection, Blind Tiger is here to enhance the limited dry options offered to consumers. Our formulation uses natural ingredients to embody the flavor and depth that alcohol would customarily offer the drink. So whether you're looking for a sophisticated alcohol-free drink at a bar, event, or just at home, or an easy classic cocktail - Blind Tiger has got you covered.
Where did the name "Blind Tiger" come from?
Blind Tiger is named for speakeasies during the Prohibition-era. The custom of illegal drinking establishments were to display stuffed tigers to alert potential patrons to the availability of illicit alcohol after hours. The “tigers” were “blind” because the authorities, at least officially, did not know they existed.
OUR beverages are:
- Organic (cane sugar and honey)
- Ready-to-Drink (RTD)
All of the flavor; none of the after-effects.
We created an all-inclusive luxury drink that is ready when you are. Our formulation uses natural ingredients to embody the flavor and depth that alcohol would customarily offer the drink.
