Dutch’s Colonial Cocktail Bitters
This aromatic tincture is an essential ingredient for any home bar. Handcrafted in small batches using botanicals popular in the 18th century, the main ingredients – wild American Spicebush and Kinnikinnick leaf, were first introduced to early settlers by Native Americans acquainted with their fragrant properties. Dutch’s is the first to use these botanicals as a natural complement to modern cocktails. We draw flavors from around the globe to complete our recipe such as Hungarian angelica seed, Pakistani red rose petals, Gabon sandalwood, French lavender, American bitter orange peel, and Egyptian chamomile. Lastly, we add dashes of juniper, Mexican allspice, and real Ceylon cinnamon to round out the character of the spicebush. Dutch’s Colonial Cocktail Bitters have a pleasant bitterness up front, a complex spicy flavor base and floral top notes.
4oz – 52% ABV
Dutch’s Boomtown Bitters
“There’s gold in them thar hills!” The 19th century saw mining boomtowns springing up all across the country. Thirsty fortune-seekers were being introduced to carbonated soft drinks made from tonics claiming medicinal properties. Our Boomtown Bitters combines the ingredients of sarsaparilla and wintergreen popular at the time, with flavors representing American whiskies of the day such as coconut and oak from the maturing cask. It’s a bitters bonanza!
4oz – 60% ABV
There wasn’t a “dry” eye in the bar on the eve of Prohibition. Liquor was about to get pretty scarce and desperate measures were sure to be taken. As one of the easier spirits to produce, gin quickly became the most widespread bootleg liquor around. Inspired by the bathtub booze, ProhiBitters is a blend of flavors tailored to tweak that gin martini. Predominant citrus notes blend with licorice, hibiscus, ginger root and coriander to class up your own “juice joint” drinks.
4oz – 60% ABV
