Why “crude”? The name is in reference to the rudimentary origins of bitters. Exotic (and undocumented) roots, herbs and spices were aged in various liquids and beneficial (and unverified) claims attached to them. Hence, crude.

Our crude moniker does not reflect our methods. Crude Bitters are crafted in small batches from 100% maceration in alcohol, with no glycerin, chemicals or dyes. No plastic or metal is used in the storage or aging of our bitters; glass pots or wood barrels are used exclusively to reduce any possible reaction or contamination. The ingredients are all natural and selection, preparation, maceration, bottling and labeling is done by hand. Cocktail bitters are used to enhance a cocktail, give a slight edge to the nightcap, and sub-par bitters can leave your drink in ruin. 

Crude Sodas are old-fashioned fountain drafts, savored purely on their own or used as cocktail mixers. The flavors are seasonal each is sweetened with a perfect balance of raw cane sugar and/or North Carolina honey. High fructose corn syrup is wrong and should not be in your soda pop.

Crude Bitters & Sodas was started in 2012 with the thought that delicious cocktails and soft drinks could be improved upon. Each bitters and soda flavor is hand-made by human hands utilizing only the finest ingredients and careful attention.
