Sorry for the lack of updates, it’s been a hectic summer, but here we are and we’ve got lots of exciting news to share.
First up, we’ve officially begun our barrel aging program and there’s now a batch of General Ambrose’s aromatic bitters sitting in a Woodinville Whiskey Co. bourbon barrel. Their whiskies are fantastic and it’s going to going to be a fantastic combination. We’ll see how long it needs but it should be out in time for Christmas! Scroll down for pictures.
We’ll also be producing “Elder Growth” our Fall seasonal in the next few weeks. It’s a conifer berry bitters using Doug Fir tips, blueberries, elderberries, dates and a nice spicy baking spice accent. It’s delicious and it’s a great addition to fall/winter cocktails, especially anything with apple or pear. Spirits wise, it’s really versatile but we really like it with whisky, gin, sweet vermouth and anything with an amaro. This new seasonal will be released in November.
We’ve also got a number of new distributors to announce. Modern Bartender has been distributing for us in BC (and a little in Alberta) for a little while now and have been helping us slowly expand our availability.
As well, we’re pleased to announce that The Crafty Bartender is now distributing for us in Eastern Canada and retailing online for all of Canada. Contact them if you want to get The Apothecary Bitters Company into your store or bar.
On top of that, we’ve got orders on the way to a few international places:
First is Napa Valley Distillery and Bar Shop for US online sales, as well as in their physical shop in Napa, CA.
We’ve also shipped an order to Only Bitters for online sales in Australia and New Zealand.
Both should have our products up on their website soon so keep an eye out for that.
We’ll be posting some new cocktails shortly so stay tuned!
