Business Magnate. Born in Germany, he is credited with introducing the "A-1 Steak Sauce" and "Smirnoff Vodka" into the United States. The son of a restaurateur and hotel owner in Hartford, Connecticut, he and his brother Louis took over the family business in 1890. In 1892 they began bottling the first pre-mixed cocktails that were marketed to hotels and restaurants. In 1895 the company began marketing A1 Steak Sauce and in 1906 they bought the company. In 1915 the business was incorporated as G.F. Heublein and Bro. Inc. After the business fell on hard times during the Great Depression, it was later resurrected by his grandson. He died in Hartford, Connecticut at the age of 88.
