Scrappy's Lavender Bitters: Whisk Sips Video Cocktail Series
Scrappy’s Bitters was founded in 2008 by Seattle, WA bartender Miles Thomas. As a bartender, he was constantly searching for bitters with cleaner, brighter flavors. He was unable to find exactly what he wanted, so he decided to take matters into his own hands. Therefore, he decided to immerse himself in the world of herbs, botanicals, and bittering agents.
Experimenting and Perfecting
Thomas spent years experimenting with flavors and extraction methods, because he wanted to perfect his recipes. He learned to pair multiple ingredients to intensify the flavor he was seeking, and came to understand that different methods of extracting flavor from the same source could yield vastly different results. Thomas finally perfected his flavors and released a range of bitters based on fruits, spices, and herbs. Ever since, Scrappy’s has been handcrafting their bitters with a small dedicated team. Their commitment to quality shows in the boldness and purity of their flavors and they consider their bitters to be the best in the world.
Bright, sweet, and incredibly well balanced, lavender is Scrappy’s flagship bitters blend. Their Lavender bitters is an aromatic preparation that combines the sweet, summery floral punch of fresh organic lavender flowers with alcohol and classic bittering agents. Perfect with vodka and gin drinks, or anywhere you’d like to add an herbaceous floral note, these bitters taste like sunshine and warm weather in a bottle!
