Using an antique recipe, we invoked the Old World flavors of a nineteenth century bar. Now you can do the same with a touch of celery seed accented with hints of citrus.
Seattle bartender Miles Thomas founded Scrappy’s Bitters in his search for better bitters. He dove headfirst into research and development, immersing himself in the world herbs and extraction methods. He learned to pair flavors to intensify the taste he was seeking, and he came to understand that there were not only many ways to extract flavor from the same source, but that each yielded a different taste. His journey proved fruitful: After years of experiments, Scrappy’s officially launched in 2008, and a small, but dedicated team has been making handcrafted bitters in Seattle, WA ever since.
