why this product

Sets mean never having to say you’re bored. Spicy, fruity and tart, these four bitters let you add different drops of flavor to your cocktails. Try out a few experiments, mix and match, whip up an alchemic storm at your home bar. The four flavors – grapefruit, chocolate, cardamom and lime – bear all the hallmarks of good bitters. Splash a few drops on the back of your hand and you will experience the intensity of organically-created aromas, handmade in small batches. And for casual cocktail drinker – perhaps someone new to bitters altogether – you can take comfort from the handy recipe card stashed inside the box.

use & care

Bitters, thanks to the high alcohol content, will happily keep for a long time if stored in a cool, dark cupboard and kept tightly secured. A couple of drops in a cocktail will add a subtle layer of flavor to the drink. The citrus flavors will do nicely to off-set sweetness and add a refreshing note to all kinds of cocktails. The earthy spice of the cardamom goes great with dark liquor drinks, and can transform a cocktail even when used alone. If you want to skip the booze, make a soda: Sprinkle 8-10 dashes of bitters into a glass full of ice, then fill with club soda -- it's refreshing enough to revive the mind, but won't put you under the table. Here are some recipes to get you started on using these for cocktails:  Martinique 2.5 ounces gin (Plymouth is good) 1/2 ounce dry vermouth (like Noilly Prat) 1-3 drops cardamom bitters This is a classic gin martini brightened with a bit of cardamom. Put the gin and vermouth into a cocktail shaker filled with ice. Stir gently with a long spoon until the alcohol is cold. Sprinkle the cardamom bitters into the bottom of your cocktail glass, then strain the alcohol into it. Garnish with a lemon twist.    Bergamot 1/2 ounce of Amaro (like Montenegro or Averna) 1/2 ounce earl gray gin*  1/4 maraschino liqueur 1-2 dashes of orange bitters Pour all the ingredients into a glass filled with ice and stir until the glass is frosty and the alcohol is cold. Strain into a glass and garnish with an orange twist.  *To make earl gray gin, take 1/8 cup of loose earl gray tea leaves, pour 1/2 liter of gin into it. Infuse for two hours, then strain out the leaves. Don't press the leaves to squeeze out the last drops of alcohol -- this can draw out too much of the tannic acid from the leaves. The Mauroni 1 ounce gin 1 ounce Maurin Quina (a French apertif made with dark cherries, quinine and bitter almonds) 1 ounce Amaro Averna 2 dashes of grapefruit bitters This has the slightly bitter, rich, orange-scented flavor of a negroni, without being one. Stir all ingredients in a glass filled with ice until cold. Strain into a chilled cocktail glass and garnish with an orange twist.

production & design

It's not easy to make robust, bitter flavors that only require a drop to taste. At least not without the aid of chemicals. But Scrappy's have achieved a remarkable thing in their Seattle kitchen: a range of dense, powerful bitters made from organic ingredients. Hand-crafted in small batches, many of the ingredients used are home-grown.
