My name is Greg Corcoran and I own Crimson Lion
Specialty Foods. We began our company in 2009
after losing my job in the roofing construction field
due to the housing slowdown at the time.
My dad's grandfather John Bono from the
old country had been a head chef for many
years in the Springfield,MA.area leaving behind
numerous recipes, passion, and a desire to
cook the finest meals for his family and friends.
His cooking ability and ultimate delicious meals
were memorable to us all.
Other relatives who arrived in America
at the turn of the century also made a
footprint, as one of New England's
most notable classic Italian meats supplier.
Like others in our family, I to had the desire to be
involved with the food business and thus Crimson
Lion was born.
We began by cooking and grilling at football
tailgate parties, in part using my dads
grandfathers recipes and/ or whatever we learned
from him. We also had a good friend
who helped us with his vast knowledge of cooking,
preparing appetizers, and recipes
for special drink concoctions. He would often
remark that we should eat and drink "for the
occasion". I did not imagine at the time that this
would eventually lead to owning a specialty
foods and wine slush/ cocktail mix business.
Often times we cant predict what the future
holds in store for us. My dad and
I decided to start The Crimson Lion.
I guess one could say, "it runs in the family".
After all I had to make a living somehow.
We soon learned it's advantageous to serve top
quality food and drink for the occasion.
Crimson Lion now offers a wide assortment of
drink mixes, gourmet specialty foods, such as
barbecue sauces,dip mixes,jams, condiments,
olive oil blends,no- bake cheesecake
dessert mixes, fruit and specialty salsa.
We continue to add new drink mix flavors
and now have over (30 ) outstanding
cocktail/ drink mix flavors.
The drinks can be made with wine
(red or white) or spirits.
Enjoy a Peach Mango Bellini, Mojito,
Pomegranate Martini or Dublin Mudslide
to name a few.
Our newest flavor Peanut Butter Cup is
now available.We sell to stores, wineries, bars,
restaurants, etc. throughout the country.
Feel free to contact us about our

We will also consider applying your own
