In 2008, Bartender Lauren Mote started making bitters for the sheer love of science and experimentation.
After the creation of over 43 different kinds that expressed ingredients and their tasting notes, Mote’s bitters developed into an award-winning cocktail program, and hundreds of worthy cocktails. In 2010, Mote partnered in life and business with Chef Jonathan Chovancek, and Kale & Nori was born. Over the next two years they would tirelessly develop recipes and applications for bitters to become the bridge between culinary and the cocktail. Bittered Sling Bitters is a pipe-dream come to a tasty fruition, celebrating what beautiful ingredients can provide the palate, plate and potion. Our line of ingredients is used across the board behind the bar and in the kitchen.
We have specific suggestions for the uses of each one, and several recipes – visit our Recipe page for some inspiration.
