Workhorse Rye - Flowers & Cacao Bitters

Workhorse Rye - Flowers & Cacao Bitters

Quick Overview

We love the fresh and blooming spring...thus we decided to bottle our most nostalgic vision of it. Could there be a better gift than a bar of chocolate and a bouquet? Nay.

Aromatic flowers of many kinds, bitter roots, and directly sourced cacao by Dandelion Chocolate are center stage in these versatile barrel aged bitters. Made and barreled last spring, bottled this spring.

Additional Information


We are gypsy distillers, which means we rent time and space from other people's distillery and infrastructure. Because of the trials and tribulations of brewing and distilling in two different locations (this was out of necessity: for three years we brewed in downtown San Francisco and trucked thousands of gallons of beer at a time over to distill at Treasure Island Distillery), in 2014 we started working out of a fantastic new facility in Livermore, California (about an hour east of San Francisco) called Sutherland Distillery. We are proud to work with them; their people, ethics, equipment, and space are top notch. They have gone to great lengths to design and build a sustainable distillery that is exceptionally water conscious, and best of all we absolutely love the products they make themselves under their own brand.
