A flat palette of white ornamented with the spiced brambles of winter, we wove together our Æstas Bitters with @wildroots_apothecary Lemon and Cardamom Botanical Syrup. In keeping with reinstating a sense of terroir in cocktails, we’ve embarked on an exploration of local artisans and atypical creators whose work breathes new life into the well-worn grooves of the common glass.

Wild Roots is a modern apothecary located in #sperryvillevirginia. They make a wide assortment of botanical syrups, tonics, tinctures, tea, and wellness remedies inspired by the wisdom of nature. For those seeking a fresh, elegant alternative to mainstream cocktail accoutrements, we highly recommend them.
