Another of the many things that was born in MICHIGAN.
Born in 1866 by a Detroit pharmacist. According to legend, he left a mixture of ginger, vanilla and spices sitting in an oak cask in his pharmacy. After returning from battle four years later, he opened the keg and found the drink inside had been changed by the aging process in the wood. It was like nothing else he had ever tasted, and he reportedly declared it "Deliciously different," which remains the drink's motto to this day.
