Bright and zippy! These pair best with spirit-forward cocktails ranging from an Old Fashioned to any aperitif/digestif you can imagine.
The predominant ingredient in these bitters are Newtown Pippin’s cider apples from 5 Mile Orchard, which were organically grown 50 miles from the distillery. These apples are crushed then naturally fermented into cider, and afterwards, is blended with a high proof maceration of mostly local botanicals.
Different from the usual Apple Bitters on the market: the flavor profile is not based on sweet baking spice/apple pie. Instead, the focus is on exemplifying the flavor profile of this cider apple which is resinous, minty, and mountainous. To compliment the apples themselves, we selected bright botanicals such as yerba santa, mace, California juniper, pine needles, rosemary, burdock root, and excellent quality Bitterman sea salt from Guatemala.
