***All proceeds for Over / Under Bitters from 5/31 - 6/7 will be donated to the Chicago Community Bond Fund, National Lawyers Guild, and Black Visions Collective in order to immediately support those arrested for protesting against police brutality and racial injustice this past weekend. We will supply confirmation of donation received for each order placed. Thank you for helping us stand in solidarity with protesters and those who've been affected most by the foundational racism our nation still endures today.
Over / Under Bitters is a bitter formulation inspired by many years of weaving our way through midwest forests, head on a swivel, marveling at the many medicinal gifts the forest's over- and understories provide. This, alongside a decade of bartending to make ends meet, turning the bitters bottle over into the mixing glass, and adding a dash or two to tie the cocktail together.
Using a combination of classic bittering agents and midwest woodland herbs, Over / Under Bitters works to support healthy digestion while helping to enhance the liver's ability to flush toxins and inflammatory compounds from our body. Taking bitters 15-20 minutes before a meal ignites the digestive fire, helping with appetite regulation and digestive juice production, ultimately working to relieve gas, bloating, and occasional heartburn.
To use: 1-2 dropperfuls on tongue before meals
Gentian Root* — A traditional bitter with an affinity for the digestive system that settles the stomach both physically and emotionally. On an emotional level, it helps with “nerves,” butterflies, and indigestion due to upset and self-doubt
Devil's Club Root Bark* — Offering a slightly bitter and earthy foundation for this formula, devil’s club has been traditionally used to remedy respiratory and gastrointestinal ailments as well as inflammatory conditions, such as rheumatism and arthritis.
Fennel Seed* — A natural digestive aid and gas reliever, Fennel can be used for a variety of digestive problems including heartburn, intestinal gas and bloating.
Angelica Root* — A bitter, warming and invigorating herb that is traditionally used to stimulate appetite, improve digestion, and reduce intestinal gas production. It also protects the digestive tract from harmful bacteria while increasing the production of stomach acid.
White Pine Needles˚ — Well known to offer support for nasal and chest congestion, as well as a great source of wild Vitamin C, White Pine offers a stimulating and bright lift to this otherwise earthy blend.
— extracted in organic cane alcohol and local spring water, alongside extractions of Yarrow, Birch Bark, Orange Peel, Wild Cherry Bark, White Pine Bark, Fenugreek Seed, Anise Seed, and Vanilla with a touch of Midwest Maple Syrup.
