Amores

Cacao nib, vanilla bean, milk thistle, oregon grape root, cherry bark

Our Amores cacao vanilla bitters are made by infusing cacao nibs and vanilla bean with a whole lot of love (and, of course, some bitter herbs). Cacao—raw and unprocessed chocolate—is quickly becoming one of the most well-known superfoods, having one of the highest concentrations of antioxidants of all foods (20 times the antioxidants found in blueberries, to be exact).

 

  • Cacao acts as a powerful mood booster, raising levels of neurotransmitters and causing endorphins to be released
  • these same compounds which improve our mood act, biochemically, as aphrodisiacs; helping to improve libido
  • cacao is extremely high in magnesium, an essential mineral that dilates blood vessels, relaxing skeletal and smooth muscle, and leads to feelings of mental and physical relaxation and calm
  • milk thistle protects the cells of the liver as well as reverse liver damage

 

Amores Melipona is truly a versatile bitter and can be enjoyed in cocktails or as added ingredient in desserts, such as chocolate sauces or on top of vanilla bean ice cream. Who knew something this decadent could be good for your health?

Riza

Licorice, rose hips, orange peel, anise, yellow dock, cinchona bark

Sweet Riza lives up to its name, distinguishing itself from other bitters on the market with the bold flavors of licorice and anise. The scientific name for licorice, Glycyrrhiza glabra, literally means “sweet root” and our bitter captures the essence of licorice, one of the most versatile herbs in the Western herbal pharmacopeia. The use of licorice goes back as least as far as the ancient Egyptians and was found in great quantities in the tomb of King Tut among his gold, jewelry and art treasures.

 

  • licorice is a powerful antiviral, soothing the digestive tract with its mucus membrane anti-inflammatory properties, supporting the adrenal glands
  • rose hips, the fruit of the rose plant is one of the highest sources of vitamin C
  • Anise also calms the digestive tract
  • yellow dock serves as a blood builder, its high iron content assists the body in the formation of red blood cells

 

Through this unique combination of powerful herbs, Sweet Riza acts as an overall health tonic, something to that can be used on a daily basis to both prevent and treat a range of diseases.

Our Wildfire Spicy Bitters is unlike any bitters you’ve tasted combining vegetal notes, the bright and earthy tones of kefir lime leaves, and a spicy and complex symphony of flavorful peppers. Kaffir lime—the bumpy Southeast Asian cousin of the widespread Persian lime—is referred to as “asjeruk obat” in Indonesia which translates to “citrus medicine.”

 

  • Kaffir lime is used as a digestive tonic assisting with immune support
  • Chili peppers contain capsaicin, a plant compound that regulates insulin levels following meals and has also been shown to inhibit the growth of cancer cells
  • Capsaicin acts as an anti-inflammatory agent and inhibits the production of Substance P, a compound that is responsible for the swelling and pain associated with inflammation

 

Spice up your next cocktail or mocktail with our Wildfire Bitters and experience the tasty benefits of lime and peppers.
