Meet the Vendor: The Bitter Housewife
Who are you and what do you do?
At The Bitter Housewife we believe that cocktails should fun and accessible. To that end we make all natural, small-batch cocktail bitters to help you make better cocktails at home. Along with those bitters come lots of recipes and plenty of education about what bitters are and how to use them.
What’s the latest thing you’ve been working on?
We recently launched two new bitters flavors, Lime Coriander and Orange. They’re perfect for summer summer cocktails with tons of bright, fresh citrus flavor without any additional acid or sugar. Kick up your gin & tonics, breathe new life into a vodka & soda, or make a summer berry smash no one will forget!
Any new exciting news you’d like to share with our readers?
We recently acquired the local syrup company RAFT Botanical Syrups. So now two great brands that help you make tasty, playful drinks at home are under the same roof. Sweet and bitter are two of the most basic elements to a good cocktail. Now we can bring you both and show you how well they work together. Hibiscus Lavender Syrup with Cardamom Bitters, yep, we thought that would catch your attention!
What is your favorite new product for 2016?
Since taking over RAFT we’re working on our first new syrup flavor – Citrus Rosemary. It will definitely be ready for the summer show and it makes such great cocktails and sodas, we can’t wait for folks to try it.
What do your customers love most about your product(s)?
Customers are initially drawn in by the name and the packaging, but once they taste our bitters they love the balanced, easily recognized flavors. Most folks know exactly what they’d do with our bitters as soon as they taste them. However, for those of you who don’t immediately know we offer tons of recipes that are sure to inspire you.
