 Our Story

Tired of boring cocktails and predictable flavors? So were we.

We wanted a line of simple syrups that would make our cocktails pop. We wanted something made with whole spices and organic sugar. We wanted something we could feel good about drinking — and we know you do, too!

We founded Ash Apothecary because we love cocktails. Plain and simple. That’s why we use only the best ingredients, handcraft all our recipes, and cook our syrup in small batches.

Our master mixologist Demetrious O’Neil — who has been a bartender since the tender age of 18 — has perfected these recipes during his time at local watering holes around Brooklyn. When friends kept asking how they could recreate his signature cocktails at home, Demetrious decided to launch his own line of simple syrups so everyone could experience the joy of mixology.

This syrup is so popular, we can barely keep up with demand. That’s why we’re launching this Kickstarter. We’ve been selling to local businesses around Brooklyn, and people love Ash Apothecary. We need a small bump to do a large production run, acquire a delivery vehicle, launch online sales, and get Ash Apothecary out to more people!

The Syrup

Ash Apothecary syrups are made here in Brooklyn in small batches using organic sugar, whole spices, and filtered water. We’re serious about quality, and that’s why we make sure all our spices are whole, non-irradiated, non-GMO, and whenever possible, organic.

Stuff we ALWAYS use:

Stuff we will NEVER, EVER use:

  • Artificial preservatives
  • High-fructose corn syrup
  • Dyes
  • Thickeners
  • GMO's

Most importantly, the Ash Apothecary line features interesting, unexpected, and unusual flavors to take any drink to the next level.

Campaign Timeline

THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR CHECKING OUT OUR KICKSTARTER! 

We are so thankful for all the support we’ve gotten so far. At the end of the day, all it comes down to is a love of mixology, a great product, and our desire to share it with the world.

So...

Risks and challenges

Producing enough syrup to meet the high demand has been our biggest challenge thus far. But, with your support, we’re confident that we can scale up production to get Ash Apothecary syrups out to everyone.

We’ve been selling to local businesses around Brooklyn and have perfected the art of delivering a quality product on a shoestring budget. We’ve tiered our rewards wisely and calculated out our expenses to the penny. We know that we can deliver our rewards promptly upon completion of this project, and get our official online store up and running.
