Just Add Bitters

Unique and delicious cocktails are on trend, and what better way to mix up a bar menu than by adding bitters? There are plenty of flavor options and Scrappy’s Bitters has it down to a science. Scrappy’s Bitters was founded by Seattle bartender Miles Thomas. In his search for better bitters, he dove headfirst into research and development, immersing himself in the world of herbs and methods of extraction. He learned to pair flavors in order 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 method yielded a different flavor. 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.

At Scrappy’s they believe in living well through the senses and, for them, part of living well is drinking well. Every flavor and every component of their bitters has been thoroughly considered and developed by them, by hand.
