Be Legendary

Our Brand originated from the beautiful surroundings of Key West. We’ve played, lived and fished in the area on and off for the past decade… and have been impressed with the good nature of the people, the thriving art and creative communities, the water… and all that comes with the gorgeous, endless playground and the vibrant colors… particularly as the sun sets in the west.

We invite you to Shop Our Collection.

We all love the holidays, but they can also be stressful. Buying presents, decorating the house, dealing…oh I mean enjoying the company of in-laws. Let’s admit it; we love family but when everyone comes together for Christmas, we can’t help but get a little Kris Kringle crazy. From our family to yours, here are a few holiday drinks to lift everyone’s spirit, calm the moment, and really bring on the holiday cheer.
