Dram Apothecary is a Colorado company that makes bitters, syrups and teas from plant-based ingredients. The owner Shae Whitney’s background includes food science, herbalism and botany. There are a couple of companies in North Carolina who make bitters that we stock at Gather and I use them to flavor the teas lattes that we serve to make really unique drinks.
Bitters are typically used in mixed alcohol drinks but can also be used to make your own soda, juice or in cooking recipes.
Located in a sleepy downtown, one Yelp reviewer notes that the only other business open in the same town as Dram Apothecary is the post office which has very limited hours.
I just ordered some syrups and can’t wait to try them in some new recipes!
