Apothecary Conifer Berry Bitters

Elder Growth Conifer Berry bitters are a wonderful compliment to fall and on into the winter, using local harvested fresh Douglas Fir tips. These bitters start with a wonderful combination of dried berries, bringing notes of dark fruits, a subtle sweetness and an earthy note. From there, the flavour develops into the bontanicals, bringing on notes of fresh douglas fir and eucalyptus, finishing with a lovely note of baking spices, especially nutmeg, as the forest lingers on to the very end.

Spirits: These bitters are very versatile and can work with nearly any spirit. Use them with gin to harmonize with the botanicals or with whiskey to have the berry notes blend perfectly and a add a little spice and botanical complexity. They also work great with sweet vermouth and are an interesting addition to tequila.

Cocktails: The simplest ways to start with these bitters are in a Manhattan or a Fitzgerald.

Tasting Notes: Aroma notes of douglas fir, elderberry, eucalyptus, nutmeg and cinnamon. Taste follows with big forest flavours, earthiness, berry sweetness, and a baking spices.
