The journey began in the late 1990s, when my partner Mark and I met a curious character – Dr. Steve Thorning. He was Deputy Reeve of our little village of Elora and I was heading up the local BIA, the downtown business organization. We hit it off and he invited us over to Bachelor Hall (Steve was single at the time) for “the pleasure of a cocktail”. Mark and I were principally beer consumers and occasionally wine drinkers at the time, drinking habits developed at University.To say that Steve was anachronistic would be an understatement, retro was how he lived.
