About this recipe

“Sweet, grassy honeysuckle gives these digestive bitters a decisively herbaceous flavor profile. Bitters taken fifteen minutes before mealtime stimulate digestion and keep you bloat free. Try these in your next gin cocktail, spa water, or jam for a truly sublime flavor experience.” – Jules Aron
