Accountfully has such a unique blend of clients and companies with interesting stories and causes. Some of these brands and their vision may strike a chord, so much so you would want to be part of the story. Now you can. Welcome to our first ever spotlight on a company that is also opening itself up for investment, via crowdfunding. Let’s take a look at the inspiring story and exciting plans of Hercules Mulligan; a true American liquor brand.
Let’s start with the name. If you aren’t a major U.S. History nerd, you need the lowdown on who this guy is. The company didn’t just happen upon a clever name, they wanted a trailblazer and true example of American spirit and independence. Hercules Mulligan was a real person, one who is legendary in Revolutionary War history. He was an Irish-American tailor and spy during the period. Not just any tailor. George Washington's tailor. His craft cocktails would open up details from his guests that helped in the war effort; intelligence that was credited as helping Hercules save Washington’s life, twice. This is the spirit and badassery the brand embodies. In the company’s words, “Hercules Mulligan is based on a unique recipe from the period. It’s what Mulligan, the man, stood for, and it’s what this Rum and Rye blend embodies. A spirit of independence.”
Already hearing fireworks and getting pumped? Good. Now let’s meet the genius behind the vision.
Steve Luttmann is a drinks industry veteran with a passion for flavors fueling his adventurous spirit. He’s always full of ideas, always after novel experiences. Luttmann became enamored with early American history as a young child, visiting all the Revolutionary War parks and points of interest during the American Bicentennial in his custom Continental Army uniform. His interest was piqued years later while reading Ron Chernow’s Hamilton, where he discovered the story of Alexander Hamilton’s good friend, Hercules Mulligan. Intrigued by his unique name and peculiar story, Luttmann researched the life of Hercules Mulligan extensively, discovering his penchant for mixing his bespoke libations with spy craft during the war. The result is Hercules Mulligan American Bespoke Libations.
Launched on November 25, 2019, the anniversary of Evacuation Day, Hercules Mulligan is a ready-made Old Fashioned. “It’s a true craft cocktail in a bottle.”
This award winning, no-fuss spirit is all quality. It uses actual, real natural flavors, and is best enjoyed on the rocks. The ingredients are simply Rum, Rye Whiskey, fresh Ginger, and Bitters designed specifically for the mix:
Most recently, it has earned the 2021 Double Gold Medal in San Francisco World Spirits Competition
Founder Steve Luttman learned from previous ventures that the in-house plan for accounting was not a great use of his time and resources. Now, he relies on the Accountfully team to be that agile accounting resource for his latest business.
“in my last start-up business, we did all our own accounting internally, in which we hired our own people and did everything ourselves. In hindsight, it was very expensive and very unnecessary. Had I known Accountfully, it would have been a much better solution - more economical, and much greater quality. I much prefer outsourcing this function with real expertise!”
The company plans to open a second round of crowdfunding on StartEngine next year. You too can have a part in the Hercules Mulligan story. Read more and get involved here: https://www.startengine.com/herculesmulligan
