Who is Bittered Sling?

Bittered Sling Bitters was created by Lauren Mote, an award-winning bartender and sommelier, along with celebrated chef Jonathan Chovancek. With over 40 years of combined experience, they launched the Bittered Sling line in 2012. The brand's story revolves around their passion for creating exceptional cocktail bitters and culinary extracts using high-quality ingredients.

Bittered Sling stands out due to its commitment to craftsmanship and innovation. The brand has gained recognition in the international cocktail and culinary community for its premium, high-quality bitters. They celebrate stories of travel and terroir, utilizing the finest ingredients sourced from domestic and international purveyors. The brand's dedication to small-batch production, handmade processes, and their unique flavor combinations make them stand out in the bitters category.

Bittered Sling offers a good variety of products, with 12 expressions divided into two portfolios: 6 global flavors and 6 creative flavors.
