Wild Moon had another opportunity to whet the appetites of several art aficionados this weekend at Hartford’s annual Open Studio Hartford, in which several talented artists from all around Hartford displayed their exceptional work. Hartford Flavor was among them, debuting our official bottle design, as well as a sneak peak into our photo shoots that will soon be released to the public. A few bottles even snuck their way into “Set to Celebrate,” for which our own very talented Lelaneia Dubay designed a table setting in the essence of Diana, our Goddess, on which a few Wild Moon bottles artfully stood in full view. We hope you enjoy this sneak peak of what Wild Moon has coming!
Come join us at 30 Arbor Street on August 15th at 7:00 pm to enjoy Wild Moon! Our four launch flavors will be available to sample individually and in specialty cocktails crafted especially for Hartford Flavor Company. Come excite your taste buds and get “wild” with us! See you there!

Diana is the Roman goddess of the Wild, woodlands, wild animals, the hunt, the Moon, and children and childbirth. She is Queen of Light and the Open Sky as well as Queen of the (good) Witches and Healing andWise Women. She symbolizes the independent female with a free spirit, in touch with her wild side. She is the Lady of Wild Things. Choosing the Goddess Diana and her deer companion represented all that we wanted to do with our new company, The Hartford Flavor Company.
We want to be in touch with that independent spirit and through Wild Moon provide something unique that is available at your favorite establishments and/or for you to enjoy in your home as well. We love the current cocktail culture and believe our line of botanical, all-natural, pure flavored infused liqueurs can help bring this movement to even greater heights.
The deer by her side represents Diana’s harmony with all of the wild beasts. For us, it represents young Hartford, as the hert or deer is one of Hartford’s city symbols. We want to be a part of Hartford’s ongoing resurgence and give back to the community in many ways. To honor Diana and her love of the woodlands, we want to help the green movement within Hartford and Connecticut.
The Oak Grove is the most sacred space for Diana. Another of Harford’s famous symbols is the historic Charter Oak tree, which was used to hide Connecticut’s separatist charter from mother England in 1687. Again, this independent spirit and the similar symbolism spoke to us.
At the turn of the 20th century, Hartford was called the Athens of America, as there was so much going on culturally and otherwise. This is occurring once again and Diana, with her bow drawn shooting for the sky, will help propel us forward.
