About Us

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.
