A History of Fee Brothers
Having been established in 1864 by a family of Irish immigrants, Fee Brothers is over 150-years-old and still going strong. The current owners and operators of Fee Brothers are the fourth generation of the Fee family, possessing knowledge and expertise passed down and improved over the last several decades. The family initially began their business by bottling and selling wine. Ironically, it was Prohibition that turned Fee Brothers into the company it is now. Unable to sell alcohol, the Fee family started selling flavored cordials and syrups instead, which people could mix with whatever alcohol they managed to get their hands on and create easy cocktail recipes. Now, Fee Brothers bitters and syrups can be used for both alcoholic and non-alcoholic drink and food recipes.
