Mutt’s Sauce, Stillwrights teaming up for tornado relief
June 25, 2019
Area startups Mutt’s Sauce and Stillwrights distillery are joining forces to create a limited-edition bourbon Mutt’s Sauce — and all proceeds will go to aid those affected by the tornados that hit the Dayton Region over Memorial Day weekend.
“This is a partnership that has been discussed for years,” Charlynda told the Dayton Daily News. “All good things come in due time. I contacted Brad Measel, co-owner of Stillwrights, with the proposal. We love this area and thought this was a great way to give back to the community.”
Mutt’s Sauce is sold in 85+ Kroger stores in Ohio. It is based on a secret family recipe created by Charlynda’s grandfather, Charlie “Mutt” Ferrel, a fellow veteran. He left her the recipe when he passed in 2013.
The Stillwrights brand and label is produced by Flat Rock Spirits, owned by brothers Brad & Shawn Measel and cousin James Bagford. The distillery opened in 2014 in Bath Township, just outside Fairborn.
