After 30 years of making bloody marys for friends and much prodding from satisfied palates wanting more, Buz finally bottled it and it is now available. Combining flavors of the sea and range with the perfect blend of spice and sweetness, Bloodys by Buz creates a flavor that embraces the gourmet palate.
However, that is not the whole story. As Buz tells it, "I never had a recipe, only a concept. The mix was always great, but it was never the same. I always had a base of tomato juice or a vegetable drink; then I started adding the same kind of ingredients that has made Bloodys by Buz so special and add whatever was in the house until it was tasty."
When the decision was made to go forward with a commercial product in 2003, Buz tells his tale, "I did what most would do. I talked to as many people in the business to find the keys to success, both from a product quality perspective as well as the keys to a commercial success." Buz went on, "After a few months of research, we had everything but a proven recipe. That was really painful and frustrating for me," he winced. "It took two months to fine-tune a recipe. I had no problems with the ingredients, but putting them together in a quantity that could be translated and extrapolated by a processor to a large volume batch was a nightmare. Finally, after two months, we thought we had it right. Several tastings provided the positive feedback and proof we needed to say 'it's a wrap' and we were on our way. Truly, A Bold Adventure for the Gourmet Palate."
Message from Buz
The Bloodys by Buz story would not be complete without recognizing those friends and relatives who believed in what we are doing, and demonstrated that belief through the provision of support of all types. Without them, this would not have been possible. Thank you. You know who you are.
