What a wild few weeks it’s been. The trip to this winter’s Royal Bison was an amazing success. The CBC interviewed me, I saw thousands of familiar faces and talked with as many as I could, and by the end of the weekend nearly every bottle I made had sold! What few bottles remained went straight to our first stockist, habitat, etc. at 10187 104 Street in downtown Edmonton and also sold quickly.

You’ll be able to buy bottles in person from habitat, etc now on, no longer needing to wait for me to mail them out to you!

Mary, our Earl Grey bitters returns again soon. The incredible number of ingredients and supplies needed to make a new batch of bitters always requires a lot of planning (and waiting on UPS), but this will be the largest yet at just over 1000 bottles. Once that batch is infusing, it’s time to get to work on the next two varieties for spring, and I think you’ll like them a lot. What a wild few weeks it will be.
