Producer Description

In 2016 a chemical engineer, bar-owner, and bartender brought their heads and hearts together and created Edmonton's first local bitters company to complement the newly flourishing Alberta craft distillery community.

Albertans were enjoying a growing number of locally produced spirits, and we saw a unique opportunity to marry them with local bitters made from organic ingredients sourced from Alberta farms.

Our bitters use organic ingredients sourced from local farmers and businesses and are then hand-made and bottled without chemicals or preservatives. While sometimes we look outside the province for fruits that won't grow in the North, most of our bitters are made with plants grown fresh in Alberta.

Each of Token's products is named after beloved Edmonton neighbourhoods and streets, an ode to the city we call home. Strathcona Orange is named after the market where we purchase our fresh and dried fruit, and Whyte Lavender takes its name from the location of co-founder Keenan's first bartending job.

What are bitters and how do you use them?

Bitters are classified as a flavour enhancer (a seasoning if you will) for the preparation of alcoholic and non alcoholic beverages, as well as any savoury or sweet food dish. Bitters add a layer of flavour complexity. They intensify the flavour of other ingredients, counteract the harshness of acidic contents and decrease the harshness of spirits. Bitters also help cleanse the palate and aid in digestion.

While the product contains 42% alcohol by volume, each dash contains an insignificant amount of alcohol due to serving size.
