Shrub & Co.

Great drinks start with great ingredients. Along with many bartenders and chefs, we’re passionate about bringing shrubs back to your glass. It is simply an amazing way to deliver flavor to cocktails or sodas.
We craft our shrubs from their most basic elements – organic fruit, sugar, vinegar and aromatics. Achieving balance and bright flavor with minimal ingredients is a challenge we embrace, so we don’t use concentrates or artificial ingredients. With the exception of our locally sourced wildflower honey, all of our ingredients are certified organic.

Shrubs are an intriguing blend of fruit, sugar, and vinegar created during the Colonial Era to preserve fruit long after harvest. Recipes and methods for making shrubs vary, but the result is always a delicious liquid that captures the essence of fresh fruit – to be enjoyed in any season. Peaches with bourbon in December? Absolutely.
Vinegar provides a distinct tangy bite that balances perfectly with the sweetness of fresh fruit. Vinegar works much like citrus in your drinks – it quenches thirst, cleanses the palate and is very refreshing.

Shrub & Co. Organic Blood Orange Shrub...$18.99 / 16oz
Made from California-grown organic blood oranges, this elegant shrub pairs easily with all the base spirits – but we really enjoy it with pisco, gin, tequila and mezcal.

Shrub & Co. Grapefruit Shrub...$18.99 / 16oz
Think about pairing Shrub & Co Grapefruit with a smoky mezcal for a Paloma-esque concoction. We’re also mixing it with everything from gin to whiskey. Of course, you can’t go wrong with sparkling wine.
