Rose is a common additive to many a cocktail, but there’s none quite like ours. Deeply heady, as if 1,000 roses were crushed and aged in a wooden barrel, our rose tincture adds aromatic bliss to Champagne and Vodka martinis without ever being perfume-y. It’s delicious in whipped cream served over strawberries and chocolate; or, better yet, add it to melted white chocolate and make ganache truffles rolled in pistachios.
Inspired by the forgotten cocktails of decades past, Monarch Bitters embodies the inherent alchemy of natural botanical maceration. They use only high-quality spirits in their handcrafted blends, each one made with organic, local or wild harvested, sustainably procured roots, barks, herbs and spices. Their bitters run from the everyday to the unconventional, each teeming with distinct flavor profiles that add depth and character to any beverage. A labor of love, they cultivate small batches over a period of weeks and bottle by hand in Petaluma, CA.
Monarch Bitters was brought to life in 2015 by Phaedra Achor, a Petaluma native inspired to create her own custom bitters in the spirit of Sonoma County’s local, farm-to-table scene. When mixing up pre- and post-prohibition cocktails at a party, she discovered how crucial bitters are to the essence of a good cocktail. So, she took it upon herself to craft and perfect her own. Monarch Bitters can also be used as a flavor component in coffee, sparkling water, desserts, ice cream, and so much more.
