Atlantic Beverage Distributors added South Carolina-based Bittermilk handcrafted cocktail mixers to its portfolio. Husband-and-wife team MariElena and Joe Raya developed Bittermilk to simplify the process of making craft cocktails at home. The mixers are made and bottled by hand in small production in Charleston. The products are sourced with all-natural, organic and unique ingredients whenever possible. Bittermilk allows the customer to mix up unique, quality cocktails following a simple ratio recipe of Bittermilk to spirit. Each of the products use a bittering agent, a sweetener and an acid to achieve a balanced cocktail. Its name, Bittermilk, is derived from the highlighting of the ingredients that bring bitterness to the cocktail, an important part of a balanced creation. Inspired by what goes into making a classic cocktail, the team adds complementing botanicals and aromatics to brighten flavor and then uses creative techniques to maximize flavors, such as burning, smoking, barrel aging, charring and macerating, sold in 8.5 ounces, 17 ounces and variety packs.
