Dr. Adam's Boker Bitters...$19.99
Founded by John G. Boker in 1828, Boker's Bitters gained popularity in New York and around the World as the finest bitters of the Golden Age of mixed drinks. Boker's Bitters were famously the preferred brand of Professor Jerry Thomas and featured throughout his book, 'How to Mix Drinks or The Bon Vivant's Companion', now recognised as the World's first bartender's guide.
Despite being unequalled when used in the refined drinks of the bar, the devastating effect of The Volstead Act, commonly referred to as Prohibition, closed the Boker's company in the 1920s.
Referencing receipts dating back to 1853, these recreated bitters are compounded using the finest natural botanicals and are once again being used globally by bartenders in classics including the Japanese Cocktail, Martinez, Crusta and Improved Cocktail and original libations such as the...

Released in the winter of 2009, Dandelion & Burdock Bitters are a unique, hand-crafted cocktail ingredient created by Adam Elmegirab to satisfy the global bar community’s growing demand for new and exciting products.
Dandelion & Burdock is a traditional British beverage dating back to the 1300s and is believed to have been created by the Italian priest Saint Thomas Aquinas. They were famed for their alleged medicinal properties, like the many cocktail bitters that followed in later years, and were a favourite drink of Adam during his childhood.
Referencing a number of Dandelion & Burdock receipts, these bitters attempt to capture their flavour profile in bitters formulae. Compounded using the finest natural botanicals, these bitters are now being used by bartenders around the globe in a number of classic cocktails and original libations such as the

During the mid-1800s Gainer’s Spanish Bitters were celebrated for their alleged medicinal properties and in particular were noted for their complex flavour profile that included layers of chamomile, citrus, spice, violet and berries. Using knowledge of patent bitters and referencing old formulae, medical journals and advertisements, these bitters now attempt to recreate the defunct bottling.
Compounded using the finest natural botanicals, these bitters are now sought after by bartenders around the globe to be used in a number of classic cocktails and original libations such as the:
