In 2008, Scrappy’s Bitters launched the first of the New American bitters to be commercially bottled. History in the making. Scrappy’s is created by bartender Miles “Scrappy” Thomas of Tavern Law fame. This is a legendary mixologist, folks. All serious discussions of bitters soon mention Scrappy’s. The line is about straight-forward flavors, such as Aromatic, Cardamom, Celery, Chocolate, Grapefruit, Lime, Orange, and more—bitters that are clean, clear, and simple.
