Phez brand Loganberry juice was produced in Salem, Oregon and marketed as an alcohol substitute after prohibition laws were put into place in Salem (1913) and nationally (1919).
It appears as if the Pheasant Fruit Juice Company began the production of Phez juice. The Pheasant Fruit Juice Company merged with rival loganberry juice producer, the Northwest Fruit Company in 1919. The merged company also produced, Loju loganberry juice, Applju sparking cider and had the largest jam and jelly plant west of the Mississippi River.
