It all started with a 19 year old bartender and a 64 year old lady. During the summer of 2001 at Lakewood Inn Restaurant Katie Quinn (the bartender) & Jan Powers (the lady) began the study of making the perfect bloody mary. Katie being 19 thought she knew all….so her very first bloody mary was made with horseradish mayo. How was Katie to know the difference between horseradish and horseradish mayo, she was only 19 for goodness sake! I’m sure you’ve figured out what happened next…the worst bloody mary in all of human history. Jan laughed and of course didn’t drink this bloody mary, but instead took Katie under her wing and through out the summer, Katie listened, practiced, and took the criticisms but alas! Finally the day came when Jan and Katie created the perfect bloody mary!
In March of 2017, Katie purchased back original family property in Cornville, Maine. The renovations began! After a long summer and quite a bit of ups and downs the new kitchen facility began pumping out bloody mary mix and bbq sauces in November of 2017. Katie has a wonderful group of people behind her helping her every which way. Mickey Powers (Jan Powers husband) is her number one sidekick! Mickey has been through think and thin with Katie from idle chatter, solid business advice and the best bloody mary maker in the world! That’s right Mickey has been stirring it up with Katie since 2015!
