Bittercube Bitters are developed and created in Milwaukee, WI, and spirits used are sourced from Yahara Bay Distillers in Madison, WI. Bittercube literally creates the bitters by hand, peeling hundreds of pounds of citrus, weighing dozens of spices, and decorticating vanilla beans, among other time consuming tasks! Bittercube Bitters do not use any extracts or oils, but only “raw” ingredients. The process is different for each style of Bittercube Bitters, with batches going through various phases on their way to completion, taking anywhere from four to eight weeks depending on variety. Bittercube has grown from humble beginnings, starting with creating one gallon jars of bitters and growing to now producing batches in large maceration barrels – but the hand-crafting process has stayed the same.
