DON’T MESS WITH THE ORIGINAL.

History of Kingsport’s Long Island Iced Tea

The story begins in the 1920’s in the midst of prohibition. Charles Bishop, aka “Old Man Bishop” is known for creating the original Long Island Iced Tea recipe while residing on Long Island in Kingsport, Tennessee. Packing quite the “punch”, the original recipe includes five liquors and maple syrup. In the 1940’s, Old Man Bishop’s son, Ransom Bishop tweaked the original recipe by adding lemon, lime and cola.
