northern orange bitters

Handcrafted between ancient mountains and boundless sea from locally foraged plants representing Gaspésie's wild flavors when the landscape is ablaze in vibrant yellows, burnt oranges and fiery reds. Rooted in ancient herbalism and alchemy, each botanical is slowly macerated separately under the waxing and waning moon. Once optimal flavor is achieved, we then steam-distill using our copper alembic to capture the last aromatic oils to coalesce into our Northern Orange bitters. Crafted without oranges and featuring prickly ash pepper, Quebec’s northernmost member of the orange family, delicately blended with sumac, rosehips and wild caraway, our zesty orange bitters linger like the last autumn leaf.
