(s/u) it was the age of prohibition. the dorn's knew there was a void to fill without the availability of champagne. the product was cranked out at this pine street building. ?"venetian came in bottles in such beautiful pacakaging it sort of gave you that feeing you're celebrating your dinner or some kind of event."?but as the years and business entered the 1930's a series of tragedies struck the dorn family. and eventually venetian ginger ale became a product no longer seen on store shelves. ?"prohibition was over with. wwii was coming up. there was a lot of strain on the family. one of them died in a car accident. rrank dorn doed in a wreck and that put everything up in the air."? enter justin ... the 5th generation... who's curiosity about his family geneology turned into the discovery of his great, great grandfathers once thriving business. ?"they were early entrepreneuers in burlington. and i wanted to honor the spirit of those early entrepreneuers."?putting time... in a bottle. by bridging the gap of past in present... through a unique beverage that has all the flavor of vermont. bernie/lauren venetian ginger ale hopes to have their product back on shelves towards the end of this summer. you can sample their product this weekend at the "made in vermont" expo going
