Making bespoke Virginia bitters - Telling a Story with Flavor
Eric Kozlik is the founder of Modern Bar Cart, a company which seems to attack the fine art of drinking from all directions: podcasting, blogging, recipes, and they even make bitters. Erik's latest episode focuses on the process that led up to our first set of bespoke bitters:
One of our very first retail partners – almost half a decade ago – was Catoctin Creek Distilling Co., based out of beautiful Purcellville, Virginia. They were one of the first craft distilleries in the region, and when tasting room manager Denise Petty and brand rep John Shope asked me to work with them to develop a bitters flavor to pair with their award winning Roundstone Rye, to say I was excited would be a vast understatement.
You can buy the bitters in our distillery tasting room or online at Modern Bar Cart.
