“Our goal is not only to come up with creative and aperitive flavor combinations but to do so in a way that the final flavor profile compliments and enhances cocktails and spirits. We believe that bitters should be a complex blend of flavors and aromas, not one dimensional or single flavored, so to add layers of depth and flavor to your mixology.” usurp from www.apothecarybitters.com
