~ "Vigil’s Root Beer is one man’s passion to create the finest root beer ever produced.
After retiring from a very succesful career in the beverage industry, Ed Crowlet set out to research what it would take to make the finest root beer ever. His research took him far into our country’s past. He found recipe books from centuries ago when root beer was a brew made at home with local hand picked roots and spices. Recipe in hand, his search for the finest ingredients in the world. He found the finest Anise in Spain, Licorice in France, Vanilla in Madagascar, Cinnamon in Ceylon. Cloves and Nutmeg in Indonesia, Wintergreen and Cassia Oil in China, Pinmento Berry oil in Jamacia, Balsam oil in Peru and back home Birch and Molasses in the USA. Finally after years of traveling, he came home and started Virgil’s Root Beer. He insisted on making it naturally without caffeine or preservatives.
The rest is history with Virgil’s winning the highest gourmet awards ever given a soft drink." ~
