About the Maker
On a shopping trip to Tennessee, I met Kristin at Barista Parlor. It was brief and I already had a Bloody Mary mix that was selling well, but I held on to her card for future use. A few months later, I was cleaning up my desk and stumbled across her card. I decided to call and set up a meeting. I had relocated to Nashville and had downsized the RL pantry collection a bit. We had lunch at Noshville, and the rest is history. Since, I have expanded with Kristin. As the Nashville-Based Walker Feed Company grows, Riley/Land's investment in it grows. Currently Riley/Land carries the best Bloody Mary mix on the market, their Honeysuckle Sour, Blackberry Margarita, Strawberry Rhubarb Margarita, White Sangria and Red Sangria mixers.
