HandMade Bitters


It all started with a joke. “We’ll call it The Bitter Housewife,” Genevieve suggested after her husband Dan asked if she thought they could actually make a living selling cocktail bitters. He registered the website on the spot. Genevieve  is generally of the mind that making things from scratch produces better results than store bought. How was pleasantly surprised by the results and she set about making the perfect bitters for an old fashioned. At the time, there was nothing on the market that spoke to women in an intelligent way. She wanted to create something that didn’t intimidate or exclude the novice, but also didn’t talk down to anyone. She wanted to create a brand for me and my friends – whiskey drinking, fun loving, go-getting women.


In 2018 The Bitter Housewife Cardamom Bitters won both a Good Food Award and a sofi Gold and then was named Product of the Year by the Specialty Food Association.


All their bitters are made by hand in small batches using real ingredients - fresh citrus peels, whole herbs and spices, and just a touch of organic cane sugar.
