We began our company in 2009. My dad's grandfather was a head chef for many years in the Springfield, MA area and left behind numerous recipes, passion, and a desire that was contagious and thus we have followed in his footsteps to a degree.
My dad also featured specialty foods and recipes for tailgating parties on his sports talk radio show on Ware 1250 A.M. along with his late friend Chuck Rae. Chuck was a chef and for many years and a well-known connoisseur of excellent food and drink. His family and ours benefited by his gourmet cooking, appetizer recipes, specialty drinks, grilling and barbecue recipes. Nobody thought at the time this would eventually lead to specialty foods and drink business. Often times we can't predict the future. My dad and I decided to start The Crimson Lion where we could develop various recipes. I guess it runs in the family.
The Crimson Lion was born. We sometimes reflect on how about how my dad's grandfather and Chuck Rae were instrumental in imparting their knowledge of top quality food and drink recipes to us. As Chuck would periodically say, " It is necessary to have food and drink for the occasion" What he meant was a certain type of party or occasion called for food/ drink to satisfy and make everyone happy.
The Crimson Lion offers a wide assortment of gourmet specialty foods and drink mixes. such as barbecue sauces, dip mixes, olive oil bread dips/ blends, no-bake cheesecake dessert mixes, gourmet soup mixes, jams, condiments, fruit salsa, specialty salsa, packaged dry salsa, and wine slush/cocktail drink mixes. We continue to add new drink mix flavors and have now reached (30 ) outstanding cocktail/ frozen drink flavors The drinks can be made with your choice of wine (red or white) or spirits. Enjoy a Peach Mango Bellini, Mojito, Watermelon, Pomegranate Martini or a Dublin Mudslide to name a few.
