Black Mission Fig Bitters & Where To Find Them.

December 20th, 2012 by Mark 1 Comment

Our Black Mission Fig Bitters have had a big month or so, getting mentioned in the New York Times (a coup), and by the lovely ladies of Gastronomista, and by the fit lads of Men’s Health, and in one very fig lovin’ gift guide from The Fig And The Pig, Alia Akam featured them in her boozy gift guide for Paper Mag, dropping  perhaps my favorite metaphor for bitters’ purpose I’ve heard yet: “Bitters heighten classic cocktails with lingering depth in much the same way belts cinch teeny waists and accentuate sweater dresses.”  The BMFs take the longest to “steep”, as there’s something stubborn about how slowly the fruit releases it’s fatty, savory/sweet oils, and it’s been a challenge to get them to our retailers around the country (and in Australia) in time for the holidays–and they are so very good in holiday drinks.  (Try an Old Fashioned with a few drops on top.) But as of this moment we have Black Mission Fig Bitters (and many of our other bitters) on shelves in the following shops:
