Welcome to Badass Bitters DIY Cocktail Bitters Kits! 

What are bitters?

Bitters fill a unique niche in medicine, food, and drink history. The story begins with the alchemical arts in ancient Egypt and ends in America in a cocktail glass. The ancients made the first bitters by extracting the healing (and flavor) qualities of flowers, peels, seeds, barks, and herbs through an infusion process using wine and, later, distilled alcohol.

Why are bitters used in cocktails?

In 1806, the cocktail appeared: “…COCKTAIL, then, is a stimulating liquor, comprised of spirits of any kind, sugar, water, and bitters.” This first publishing of the word “cocktail” and its definition appeared in The Balance, Columbian Repository in Hudson, New York. By the early twentieth century, cocktail culture flourished, and bitters became the secret sauce in the classics. Today, you become the alchemist-mixologist with our Badass Bitters DIY educational kit, infusing and making bitters. Badass.


From Boston Commons to Spokane's Manito Park, John Duncan came in 1912, planting the seed of Spokane becoming the Lilac City. Little did he know how well the flowers pair with gin and vodka. Our Lilac City DIY Cocktail Bitters blends the Essence of Asia's ancient flower with citrus, vanilla, and lavender — flavors that bring your libations to full bloom. Fancy that!

Bitters are to cocktails as spices are to food. Our Badass Bitters Kit empowers you to release the flavors of nature as you learn about bitters and make your cocktail bitters. Each kit makes approximately 10 oz. of your house-made bitters.
