About Wynk

Casey Parzych, Shawn Sheehan and Angus Rittenburg aren’t just dudes with cool names. They are the brain trust behind Wynk. They’ve been engineers and entrepreneurs and lots of things in between.

But what they’ve always dreamed of is crafting a delicious drink that actually helps people unwind, without impacting how they feel the next day. Because we can all agree that hangovers really suck. So they took that dream, mixed it with plenty of quarantine thinking time, and Wynk was born!

We make Wynk on-site in states where it’s legal using the equipment that lives on the back of our Wynk Wagon℠ 18-wheeler. So while other beverages make their drink in a single location and ship to market, we actually flipped the script and bring the factory to the market. Crazy, huh? But you gotta do crazy things when you’re chasing a dream this delicious.
