Martini Bitters



  • An East Fork exclusive, crafted by our friends at Heilbron Herbs, just down the road in Marshall
  • Ingredients: sugar cane alcohol, Western Carolina-grown tangerine gem marigold, bronze fennel, angelica root
  • 5 oz bottle

Add some bright, crisp, flowery oomph to an ice-cold gin martini. Try 1 part Dry Vermouth, 3 parts gin, and 3-4 dashes of bitters, stirred up or on ice with an orange or lemon peel to finish. Or seriously up your club soda and bitters game. Heilbron Herbs grows 100% of their herbs and plants in Western North Carolina, using regenerative farming methods and wild-harvesting ingredients for their extracts, tisanes, oils and now, our bitters.

Saralyn Bellmer harvesting herbs

Saralyn Bellmer

"All the herbs for Heilbron’s tisanes come from farmers in North Carolina. Saralyn buys herbs fresh at harvest and dries them herself in a huge herb dryer she built. While labor-intensive, drying the herbs in this way allows for a high degree of control over the quality for the final product. Once dry, the herbs go to a small mill where machinery cuts them to looseleaf size—though some, like the purple shiso and Amrita tulsi used in Color Therapy, have to be stripped by hand."
