Rose, sage, holy basil, chrysanthemum, and lemongrass meld to create this delicate, herbaceous bitters, which is inspired by ceremonial flowers used the world over. Softly bitter and lightly sweet, it was originally envisioned as a complement to white spirits like vodka and gin, sparkling wine, and sparkling water -- but we know many mixologists who stir the Rose-Sage into whiskey to great effect. With its balanced profile and floral palate, it’s also a bartender favorite for low-ABV cocktails.
Strongwater was started by a Chemist & Herbalist that had the desire to break free of cocktail convention in Denver, the Wild West of beverages and the next great cocktail city. Together, we untap the wisdom of 17th century strongwater apothecaries and bottle the same, celebrated magic with modern methods, power-packed botanicals and mountain spring water. Then we boldly blend them at high altitude for better, brighter and bolder sips worth sharing.
