Ale-8-One, the soft drink unique to Kentucky, has been bottled in Winchester since 1926. Still a closely guarded family secret, the Ale-8-One formula was developed by G.L. Wainscott in the 1920's. He sponsored one of America's first 'name the product' contests, and 'A Late One' was the winning entry. The drink's logo, Ale-8-One, was adopted as a pun of its description as the latest thing in soft drinks.
Jane Rogers Wainscott inherited half of her husband's bottling stock at his death in 1944. The other half was divided among the company's employees. At her death in 1954, Mrs. Wainscott left her interest to her brother, Frank A. Rogers, Sr. Mr. Rogers bought out his partners in 1962, and incorporated the Ale-8-One Bottling Company. Frank A. Rogers, Jr., became manager, was later named president, and the phenomenal growth of the new corporation began.
The company built a new plant on Carol Road in 1965. By 1974, the remaining Wainscott flavored drinks were dropped in order to concentrate on Ale-8-One, and Frank A. Rogers, III joined the Company's management. Today Ale-8-One is operated by Frank A. Rogers, III and owned by him and his children.
