You’ll be the first to know
We’re all out of this batch. Give us a nudge and we’ll let you know if this one is available again.
We’re all about transparency. Here’s a breakdown of what’s in each bottle of Bitter Clove.
Bitter Clove: Amount Per Ounce
Every bottle contains real fruits, herbs, and botanicals and is blended and bottled by our team in Sonoma. Nothing sketchy. Nothing corporate. And we have a fraction of the sugar of those European liqueurs.
Hand foraged in Madagascar, we use whole clove buds that are bursting with spice and sweetness.
Spicy and earthy, this combination of fresh and dried ginger brings a bold finish to every sip.
More intense than your typical cinnamon bark, this sweet spice is warm and peppery with just a bit of kick. Ours comes from the Mekong Delta in Vietnam.
Sourced from the peaks of the Swiss Alps, this root is a classic ingredient in aromatic bitters and liqueurs, known for having a strong, bitter flavor.
Harvested deep in the rainforest of Ecuador, this botanical is traditionally used to make tonic water. We love it for the subtle bitter flavor it adds to every sip.
Also known as rosemarrow, hibiscus is punchy, floral, and a little tart (and high in Vitamin C). Its deep crimson hue provides a little color.
Harvested in Belgium and Saxony using centuries-old practices, angelica root is used as an aromatic bitter herb.
We add orange peel for both its flavor and its aromatic qualities. It has the perfect balance of sweet and bitter. We source from a 40-year old organic orchard in Florida, and from our ranch when they’re in season.
Kerala, India is home to some of the greatest cardamon in the world, including our own. With hints of citrus, pine, and mint, these zesty seeds add to the flavor’s complexity.
With that potent licorice flavor, star anise brings a nutty and savory note to every bottle.
Ours are wild foraged in the mountains of Oregon or harvested from our ranch. Organic bay leaves get that nice, minty, herbal aroma going.
Jasmine Pearl Tea
Hand picked from old growth tea trees in Anhui, China, our Emperor’s Jasmine Pearl Tea is truly unique. Dried green tea pearls are scented with jasmine blooms a total of 11 times to ensure that every pearl has absorbed the delicate jasmine scent. This tea leaves behind a smooth, honey-like taste.
Nothing like your store-bought bananas, our wild Thai dried banana comes from an ancient cultivar and brings a concentrated caramel-like layer to the flavor.
Raw Cane Sugar
Unlike those European liqueurs, we don’t use too much — and that’s how we like it. With more impurities than refined sugar for a more natural taste, and a slight molasses aroma.
The foundation of every bottle. We started with grapes from our farm and now we source the best grapes from growers we love nearby. This isn’t like your mom’s chardonnay — our grapes are unoaked for a clean, fruity palate.
Grape brandy, distilled in Sonoma County, extracts all the herbs and botanicals you taste.
