Thank You

Bittermens wouldn’t be here if it wasn’t for the support we’ve received from bars and bartenders worldwide.

We would like to take a moment to thank some of the key people who helped us get started:

  • Arne Hillesland of Distillery 209, without whom we never would have made our first batch of bitters
  • Craig Berold and Joselino Solis, the inspiration to select mole as our first flavor
  • Dominic Venegas, Thomas Waugh, Carlos Yturria, Scott Baird, Jeff Hollinger and Jonny Raglin for being our guinea pigs on the initial batch of mole and encouraging us to pursue bringing it to market
  • Phil Ward for asking if we could make a Grapefruit bitter
  • Brian Miller for being inspiration behind the ‘Elemakule Tiki Bitters
  • Jackson Cannon for the logistical support he provided
  • Kevin Martin, Bob McCoy, Kit Paschal, Nicole Lebedevitch and the team at Eastern Standard for being a constant source of feedback during our product development process
  • Angus Winchester for bringing the Grapefruit Bitters to the attention of the Tanqueray Guild
  • Adam Lantheaume for the retail support he has given since we first launched in 2009

We’d also like to thank:
