1 oz Dropper Bottle

We make our Forest Fire Bitters by hand-harvesting cedar from the wildest of places in Muskoka. Next, we start a fire using the bush craft technique of the cedar bow-drill. We char the fresh cedar leaf and branches over the fire and then jar and smother in locally distilled smoked rye whiskey. After steeping they are blended with extracts of bitter herbs. These bitters are perfect for adding smokey or woodsy flavour to your favourite cocktail.

Ingredients: 40% alcohol with extracts of Eastern White Cedar **, Dandelion**, & Gentian *.

*Certified Organic     ** Wildcrafted

Add a dash of bitters (5-20 drops) to your favorite cocktail or in a bit of water before meals.

What Are Bitters?

Bitters are a traditional cocktail ingredient made of bitter and aromatic herbs infused in alcohol. Used as only a few drops per drink they are the ‘salt & pepper’ that brings out flavour and character to your drinks. The prohibition era collapsed the thriving bitters industry. Until the early 21st century the selection of bitters was extremely limited.

Our WILD BITTERS are a part of the movement to bring back craft cocktails. We use wildcrafted ingredients, high-quality organic herbs in our bitters. They are formulated using traditional herbal knowledge and attention to providing flavors applicable to modern craft cocktails. Being alcohol extracts bitters will last for many years, but over time the flavors will change. Enjoy your craft bitters!
