It started with a passion and a pandemic.
It led to an understanding and conviction.
Welcome back to the Roaring 20s
Blind Tiger is linked back to Erie, Pennsylvania’s Room 33 Speakeasy where owner, Rebecca Styn, PhD., brought her passion for the Prohibition era to life. Mirroring the ban on alcohol in the 1920’s, the onset of the pandemic in 2020 forced the speakeasy to provide only sans-alcohol drink options to-go. The team took on the challenge to deliver a top-notch spirit-free cocktail that mirrors the flavors of the original, less the alcohol. The result: a sophisticated cocktail with the defining flavors, with or without the spirit.
Given the knowledge that consumers who abstain from alcohol often experience social anxiety at drinking establishments and celebrations, Blind Tiger set out with a mission to enhance the limited dry options offered at bars and events that will let them feel part of the occasion.
Today, Blind Tiger can be found in 7 states and continues to grow its presence of top-quality, all natural, spirit-free cocktails and will be releasing new flavor profiles in the near future.
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.
