Bushwacker origin story

The Bushwacker was invented at the Ship's Store/Sapphire Pub in Sapphire Village, St Thomas, U.S. Virgin Islands in the spring of 1975 by bartender Angie Conigliaro (cousin to Tony of the Boston Red Sox) and Tom Brokamp the restaurant's manager. It was promptly named after a visiting guest's dog, Bushwack, an Afghan Hound. The dog's owners were flight attendants and rarely traveled with their 4-legged companion. After spreading quickly throughout the Virgin Islands, the invention was soon brought back stateside by bartenders from Florida after visiting the islands. Many bars throughout Florida experimented with the recipe creating their own versions and doing much to popularize it in the states.

Bushwacker was first bottled and mass produced by Bushwacker Spirits of Sarasota Florida in 2020.

Since 1986 there has been an annual Bushwacker Festival held at Quietwater Beach on Pensacola Beach, FL to celebrate the drink and its celebrity status.
