More about the Maker: For Bitter For Worse drinks are in direct response to the too-sweet mocktail. We craft cocktails for the sophisticated adult palate.
1. INGREDIENT EXTRACTION
We macerate a proprietary blend of herbs and botanicals in neutral alcohol and water to extract the flavors.
2. ALCOHOL REMOVAL
Using a still, we remove the alcohol using our patent-pending “reverse bootlegging” process. This creates our robust, bitter spirit base.
We mix our spirit base with decoctions, juices, and syrups made from Pacific Northwest ingredients.
Our drinks contain no added flavors—“natural” or otherwise—and they’re low carb, sweetened with pure monk fruit, wine grape nectar, or maple syrup. Simply put, they’re delicious AF.
