Each of our DIY bitters kits includes everything you need to get started making bitters at home. For each recipe, you will need to add 3/4 cup of high proof spirits, water, and 1/2 tsp sugar (or 1 tsp simple syrup), which are not included. Our bitters recipes yield two 4 oz. bottles.
The kits include:
- Bitters ingredients: botanicals, herbs, and spices
- 1 original bitters recipe with instructions
- 1 infusion jar (clear)
- 1 tincture jar (amber)
- 1 stainless steel flask funnel
- 1 metal strainer
- 2 bitters bottles (4 oz. each)
- 2 bottle labels
OUR KITS SAVE TIME
When we started making bitters at home we spent hours online tracking down the right tools at reasonable prices - time we could have spent relaxing with a delicious cocktail. Luckily for you, we've done all the legwork. There is no need for you to order five different tools from four different stores (and pay shipping four different times); we've collected everything for you, and it will all arrive at once, ready to go. We've also done a ton of recipe research and testing, which saves you time and avoids the inevitable wasting of expensive ingredients. And with each batch of bitters taking three weeks to brew - the time saved is significant.
OUR KITS SAVE MONEY
Many of the ingredients needed to brew great bitters are obscure, expensive, or can only be bought in bulk. For the average person getting started making homemade bitters, ordering up small quantities of wormwood, gentian root, quassia bark, or other rare ingredients and having them shipped from across the country quickly adds up. By ordering in bulk and replenishing our stocks frequently, we keep your costs down while also ensuring fresh ingredients. It's just an added bonus that you don't have two pounds of wormwood sitting in your cabinet, creeping out your family and friends.
OUR KITS MAKE MAKING BITTERS EASY AND ENJOYABLE
Making your own bitters is about having full control and knowledge of the ingredients and process that go into your cocktails. But there's no question that making your own bitters takes more time and commitment than simply buying them at the store. In fact, our recipes take 21 days from start to finish. But it's not hard. We've worked to make the process easy and enjoyable so that you can see, control, and have fun with it, but not be daunted. Trust us, the end result is worth your time and effort. Nothing will enhance your cocktails more than a few dashes of homemade bitters.
Whether you're enjoying a quiet toast to the end of the week or mixing up cocktails for a large group of friends, experimenting with flavor combinations and tasting how your homemade bitters open up a whole new world of cocktail combinations is a fun endeavor.
