Based on patent medicines, bitters are a tincture of fruits, spices, barks, and woods. The Bitter Housewife carries on the tradition in an all natural, small batch fashion - made in their Portland facility by hand. They source only the best real ingredients from sustainable, artisan producers.
This is the Bitter Housewife's signature flavor and was designed specifically to enhance an Old Fashioned with the flavors of dried cherries, ginger, and warm baking spices, plus just enough bitterness to keep things interesting. These bitters also work great in a Manhattan, Dark and Stormy, or anywhere you would use Angostura.
These surprisingly savory bitters lead a duplicitous life adding depth to sweeter drinks based on apple, pear, or orange, but also blending right in with the smoky characteristics of an anejo tequila or scotch.
A bright, slightly floral bitters packed full of fresh grapefruit flavor. Use it to add a new life to a classic gin and tonic or pair it with an aperitif like Lillet, St. Germain, or sparkling wine.
