Jaded by the extracted flavor of most cherry bitters on the market, we set out to make a version that really tastes like fresh peak-summer cherries, ideal for enhancing classics like the Manhattan and adding a rich, fruity note to cocktails made from brown and white spirits alike.
Our Cherry is built on real organic tart and bing cherries, which give this bitters a voluptuous, fruit-forward profile. We use bourbon as our base, which draws earth and forest from the cinnamon, cherry bark, and gentian that round out this nuanced and harmonious blend.
Ingredients: 7 year aged bourbon, tart and bing cherries, schisandra berries, cherry bark, cassia cinnamon, gentian
Strongwater was started by a Chemist & Herbalist that had the desire to break free of cocktail convention in Denver, the Wild West of beverages and the next great cocktail city. Together, we untap the wisdom of 17th century strongwater apothecaries and bottle the same, celebrated magic with modern methods, power-packed botanicals and mountain spring water. Then we boldly blend them at high altitude for better, brighter and bolder sips worth sharing.
