The Challenge


Since he turned 21, our founder, Bob's role at parties was to create a cocktail or beverage that went beyond wine and beer. With no formal training, Bob fumbled along year after year until he finally created a new recipe for simple syrup that ENHANCED his already popular sangria. It was an instant hit. It only took a decade, but now with the perfected recipe, you too can be the party expert without the years of mediocre drinks!

The Solution - Est. 2017

At the urging of his friends, Bob founded Statesman Beverage Co. with only one product: Sir Winston's Spiced Simple Syrup. Named after the sophisticated yet spicy attitude of statesman Sir Winston Churchill, our simple syrup adds the perfect classy kick to your favorite whiskey drink.
