We met the folks behind Bittercube a few years back, and we love that they appreciate great spices as much as we do. We’ve got a special batch of their Jamaican No.2 Allspice bitters, made with our Sweet Allspice from Guatemala.
The bitters are bright and acidic, with grapefruit and hibiscus overtones and underlying notes of ginger, vanilla and allspice. We also put together a cocktail booklet with them that’s chock-full of both alcoholic and non-alcoholic cocktails using our spices and these bitters!
They play well with all kinds of cocktails, from a Tiki, Daiquiri or Margarita, to a Paloma or Highball.

Bittercube Bitters are slow-crafted in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. They create densely flavored bitters through thoughtful sourcing and collaborations with farmers, botanical suppliers and bartenders.
Bittercube was founded in 2009 by two bartenders with a shared vision for bold & balanced bitters. Over the years, Bittercube has been featured in The New York Times, Martha Stewart’s Everyday Food, Imbibe Magazine, Timeout, Bon Appétit, Chicago Tribune and NPR, among many other publications.
These are very good bitters. I like the eye dropper as it allows for greater precision when measuring. I would like to have had a bigger size bottle as this ran out too quickly.
Works for beer, too!
These bitters are great. I don't drink a lot of cocktails, but I love my sour ales and gose beers. When those aren't available, a few drops of this will transform any lager into something more sophisticated. It's also great in mocktails!
A bitter with style!
Whether added to your favorite cocktail/mocktail, sparkling water or broiled fresh grapefruit, I recommend giving this bitter a try. Unexpected and refreshing add-in.
