Bittercube Bitters were created in Milwaukee, WI, in 2009. They make all their bitters by hand. All flavors feature naturally sourced ingredients, and never contain any extracts or oils. The process is different for each of their bitters, with batches going through various phases on their way to completion, taking anywhere from two to five weeks depending on variety.
Bittercube has grown from humble beginnings, starting with one gallon jars of bitters and growing to now producing batches in large maceration barrels. No matter how large the batch though, the careful handcrafted process has stayed the same.
