The Return of Earl Grey Cocktail Bitters!
Today we’re incredibly happy to announce the return to availability of the State Motto Earl Grey bitters, but that it has also returned with two new friends, Wormwood cocktail bitters, and Bitter Orange cocktail bitters.
The Debut of Wormwood and Bitter Orange Cocktail Bitters
Our Wormwood bitters are inspired by a historical bitters style that appeared after the outlawing of absinthe. A few drops of wormwood bitters added to anise liqueurs will approximate absinthe, and can be quite soothing for upset stomachs. Our Bitter Orange cocktail bitters are possibly our most bitter recipe yet! Made to complete your Old Fashioned, and bitter enough to work in most drinks other drinks, Bitter Orange remains flavorful enough to also add something extra to your deserts. These work well also with chocolate recipes, and naturally with drinks using Gin, Vodka or White Rum. You can also find the new State Motto Earl Grey Cocktail Bitters, State Motto Wormwood Bitters, and State Motto Bitter Orange Bitters in person at habitat, etc on 104 Street in downtown Edmonton. We’re always looking for interesting shops to carry our creations, so if you are one (or know of one), get in touch!
Earl Grey cocktail bitters are now available! After waiting for the best organic cornflowers to be found to arrive and more than a month in preparation, Mary, the State Motto Earl Grey bitters can now be purchased in 4oz bottles.
The response has been overwhelmingly positive, and I appreciate your support. As usual, by following our aim of “No Artificial Flavors • Organic When Possible • As Local as Possible” we are able to bring you the best (mostly) organic earl grey flavourings possible.
I’ve already heard back from Earl Grey bitters customer #1, Paul that this works great in Manhattan cocktails and the Negroni, which is one of my favorite drinks.
This batch of cocktail bitters also marked the end of an era. From this point on the 4oz dropper bottle will be retired …and replaced with the 5oz woozy-capped bottle for no additional charge! This means you get 20% more State Motto cocktail bitters, and 20% more earl grey cocktail bitters in the future, at what are already low costs. The reason for this is that in my quest to continually find ways to get better product to you, I’ve found that larger bottles are somehow less expensive. Bonus!
This site will help everyone keep up to date on bitters edition news, purchase and pre-order future rounds, food and drink recipes using State Motto, and find out more about this little joy-bringing project. The first batch was a mere five bottles and was sold out to friends in less than an hour. Future batches have had more pre-planning go into them, and will be announced here and elsewhere online as the time comes. Thank you to everyone who has helped State Motto cocktail bitters so far, more appropriate thanks are to come!
