Ale-8-One celebrates 93rd anniversary with Louisville Cream,
and live historical interpretation


In honor of its 93rd anniversary, Ale-8-One is excited to announce that Louisville Cream has developed a signature Ale-8 Blackberry flavor that will be available at its scoop shop during the month of July. In addition, Ale-8 will host an ice cream social at the Frazier History Museum on July 13. For the first time ever and that day only, the Ale-8 secret formula developed over nine decades ago by the company’s founder will be on display for guests to view. And a live dramatic show of Ale-8's history debuts that day.

At noon and 2 p.m., folks can enjoy a short live performance of the Frazier Museum’s interpretation of Ale-8's history in the Gateway Garden. Following the noon presentation, Louisville Cream will offer complimentary mini Ale-8 and blackberry-flavored ice cream floats for as long as supply lasts. After the 2 p.m. show, Ale-8-One will offer classic craft soda samples for as long as supplies last. That day, the Frazier will offer a special buy one and get one free admission to guests showing their disposable cup from the Blackberry Ale-8 Float giveaway in Gateway Garden.

About Ale-8-One:

Ale-8-One Bottling Company was founded in 1902 by G.L. Wainscott in Winchester, Kentucky, and remains the oldest, privately held bottler in the United States still owned and operated by the founding family. Ale-8-One soft drink has been bottled in green glass in Winchester since 1926. The only soft drink invented in Kentucky still in existence, Ale-8’s proprietary blend is flavored with ginger and citrus and contains less carbonation and fewer calories than conventional sodas. The company's founder and inventor, G.L. Wainscott, developed the recipe, and to this day, his great-great-nephew, Fielding Rogers, hand blends every batch of Ale-8. Ale-8 is widely available in Kentucky, available nationwide online, available in Kroger stores throughout the Southeast, and can be found at most Cracker Barrel, Fresh Market and Harris Teeter stores.
