Meet the Maker
Why “crude”? The name is in reference to the rudimentary origins of bitters. Exotic (and undocumented) roots, herbs and spices were aged in various liquids and beneficial (and unverified) claims attached to them. Hence, crude. Crude Bitters are crafted in small batches from 100% maceration in alcohol, with no glycerin, chemicals or dyes. No plastic or metal is used in the storage or aging of our bitters; glass pots or wood barrels are used exclusively to reduce any possible reaction or contamination. The ingredients are all natural and selection, preparation, maceration, bottling and labeling is done by hand. Cocktail bitters are used to enhance a cocktail, give a slight edge to the nightcap, and sub-par bitters can leave your drink in ruin.View Full Profile
