Our guest today is someone that you’re going to love hearing from if you’re entrepreneurial, into the all-natural food trend, or if you like adult beverages. Chris Wirth founded American Juice Company in 2012, which manufactures all-natural cocktail mixers for premium bar establishments.Chris founded the company with his friend Massimiliano Matté, a renowned mixologist and nominee for the prestigious “Perfect Barman de Paris” award known for his collaborations with celebrated chefs like Alain Ducasse and Heinz Beck. Their mix blends are created with fresh, natural ingredients. Each variety is designed to stand alone or work in combination so you have endless opportunities. They recently launched into retail in the last 6 months through Whole Foods, Fresh Direct and a number of independent retailers in New York City.
