The Bitter Housewife bitters and their sister-brand RAFT syrups are a family of artisan craft cocktail ingredients handmade in Portland, Oregon. In 2012, wife and husband team Genevieve and Dan Brazelton started The Bitter Housewife bitters with the mission of making cocktails approachable and fun through great tasting flavors, simple recipes, and education. Knowing a great cocktail is a balance between strong, sweet, sour, and bitter flavors, the Brazelton’s expanded their line with RAFT syrups, made using 100% organic cane sugar. Now offering a full diverse line of bitters, syrup, and cocktail kits, The Bitter Housewife and RAFT products use all-natural, sustainable, and fair trade products, and empowers professional bartenders and general consumers alike to create delicious cocktails with the best ingredients.
The Bitter Housewife Cardamom Bitters (100 ml, $15) is a surprisingly savory bitters that lead a duplicitous life adding depth to sweeter drinks based on apple, pear, or orange, but also blending right in with the smoky characteristics of an anejo tequila or scotch. The Bitter Housewife Cardamom Bitters was also a winner of a 2018 Good Food Award.
