June 4th, 2013 by Mark

Andrey Kalinksy of Highlands (250 West. 10th St.) created The Mad Hatter for the recent  Chick Corea Festival at Jazz at Lincoln Center. So dubbed after a 1978 progressive composition and album of the same name from the great jazz pianist and keyboardist (listen to the entire album on YouTube here) the cocktail was a suitably […]

Says Zagat: BHB Trendy, Kooky, in NYC

May 24th, 2013 by Mark

Photo Credit: Zagat, Hernan F. Rodriguez Well, we’re definitely in NYC. Definitely part of a larger bitters trend. Kooky? I wouldn’t have thought so, certainly not as kooky as Bitter Tears’ “Lucille” Blood Orange and Ginger Bitters, or Miracle Mile Gingerbread Bitters, but we’ll take it. In James Mulcahy’s piece for Zagat about 8 trends […]

Philadelphia Freedom: BHB lands in Philly at Green Aisle Grocery

May 23rd, 2013 by Mark

As we inexorably expand our web of retailers out across the country (and the world) like some kind of bitters Borg, we keep encountering innovative and very personal shops and the cool teams behind them. South Philly’s Green Aisle Grocery  (1618 East Passyunk Avenue, 225-465-1411) is run by a pair of brothers who must really, really […]

Extra Fancy Spring Cocktails in the Key of Scotchy Scotch Scotch

May 1st, 2013 by Mark

Stopped into Extra Fancy in Williamsburg the other night to try some spring scotch cocktails–a capital notion. E.F.’s Monday crewTom “Tojo” Johnson and  Eric Job were serving up some frisky numbers using whiskies from the Edrington portfolio (cocktail list below). We were pleased to see our Rhubarb Bitters put to good use in the “Sam […]

New Shops around the US of A carrying BHB

April 27th, 2013 by Mark

We’ve working with a couple sweet new retailers around the country–in the case of Hey Rooster General Store in Nashville, very very new. The artisanal, crafty handmade good store with one of the better names in recent memory just opened in the last week of April, and we’re pleased to be included on their shelves. […]

Black Mission Fig Sour or: Martha, Martha, Martha!

March 13th, 2013 by Mark 1 Comment

Back in October I was involved in rounding up bartenders for Martha Stewart’s “American Made” awards event that was held in a made-over Vanderbilt Hall at Grand Central Station. Still not quite sure how this happened, but I was the point man between the production team and some seriously blue chip bartenders from around NYC, […]

New BHB Press from The Empire State to The Golden Gate.

January 24th, 2013 by Mark

Why the Jessica Lange Bruce Weber photo? That’s pretty much how we felt when we got a couple great mentions this week, in both The SF Bay Guardian  &  The NYT Magazine. (The Times Magazine had Jessica Lange on the same page, which sparked the image search.) The lovely Virginia Miller  had some very nice things […]

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 […]

Apples, Figs, Sandy Denny & Late November.

November 14th, 2012 by Mark

Woke up early Sunday morning, opened the New York Times Magazine and read Rosie Schaap’s marvelously evocative essay on cool fall nights and how they make her crave apple cider drinks, a great piece of writing that manages to fold in the proto alt-folk music of Sandy Denny and Fairport Convention, Frost & Yeats.  Shaap […]

A Very Figgy & Very Adult Milkshake.

November 9th, 2012 by Mark

  I’ve known Simon Lange, chef at Apartment 138 (138 Smith Street in Boerum Hill, Brooklyn), since he played high school soccer with my kid brother in Key West. When I first was getting interested in bitters a couple years ago, we took a road trip to Maine for another kid brother’s wedding. In our […]
