H.G. Hotchkiss At one time H.G. Hotchkiss, founder of the Hotchkiss Essential Oil company, was called the "Peppermint King", his great-granddaughter Anne recalls. The company he founded in this Upstate New York Village of Lyons was,
during his reign, responsible for about one third of the
annual production of peppermint oil in the world in 1860.
The herb was grown extensively in fields around Lyons,
and the canallers claimed that they could tell when they were approaching the village by the smell of peppermint in the air.
