Sarsaparilla, a type of root beer, was popular in the U.S. in the early 19th century as a remedy for skin and blood problems. Sarsaparilla traditionally has been used by North American Indians as early as the 16th century as medicine and as youth and energy tonic. Traveling back to the 14th century, indigenous tribes in South America also used it as a general tonic followed by New World traders introducing it into European medicine. Maybe its the long history of this plant and beverage that leaves us yearning for olden times and lazy days.
ON THE PALETTE
Porch swings, picket fences and root beer sodas. The taste is reminiscent of a proper root beer with licorice and wintergreen undertones. Bring on the banjos!
Yes! Everything just tastes better with a root beer style bitters. But if you have to choose… We s'pose Manhattans, Vodka and Sodas, Old Fashioneds, Dark and Stormys, Mules… nope — not possible to narrow down. Sorry, not sorry.
Bitters were originally created as medicine. Tincturing plants (allowing the plant matter to marinate in alcohol for an extended amount of time) is a way to extract and concentrate the specific medicine that plants hold. Each of the plants we use has significant research supporting its medicinal use. We tincture our plant matter using varying proofs of alcohol for varying amounts of time in order to extract the best flavors and constituents (their specific medicine) from each plant. We then lovingly blend our individual extractions together to create the amazing flavors you just can’t get enough of. Although we use time honored methods of folk medicine making, we are NOT saying our bitters are medicine.
Our bitters are hand crafted using only organic and wild crafted botanicals. We are conservation minded folks who care about the plants and the world we live in. From the harvesting of the plants to the bottling of our products, we take care in every step. You’ll be able to taste the love.
