Despite the name, we are anything but bitter. In fact, we turned our romantic loss into a delicious gain by creating The Bitter Ex Bitters Company, which specializes in creating unique, handcrafted small-batch bitters using the highest-quality herbs, spices, roots, and botanicals to create an array of flavors to make your next craft cocktail a success or to add a little extra zing to your homemade dessert (because everything is just a little better with bitters).

Of course, in order to make this business a success, The Bitter Ex needs your support. If you've ever had a passion—or at least a profound respect—for the art of a good cocktail, then these bitters are the key ingredient you've been looking for to take your next drink to new heights. With your support, The Bitter Ex Bitters Company will be able to provide bars, restaurants and even at-home cocktail connoisseurs all over the country with these amazing batches of delicious bitters.
Here are the various bitters that you can choose from if you decide to sponsor us (or if you contribute enough you'll get the whole set!): Aromatic (Make Up Sex); Citrus (Drunk Texting); Root Beer (Float Yer Boat); Coffee (Cream Yourself); Spicy Celery (Stalking Ex).
Your contribution will also assist with costs for The Bitter Ex’s new home so we can continue to do what we love from a humble but cozy space which we can call our own. In return, you’ll get some amazing rewards, from getting your very own set of these mouthwatering bitters to making your very own set of bitters with The Bitter Ex (this makes a cool bachelor gift!) to having your own party where The Bitter Ex creates the concoctions that you need to impress your friends (because who doesn’t want that?).
Risks and challenges
Starting a business isn’t easy, especially when you only have two people doing all the work. Being able to get the proper licensing, as well as establish a space from which to make bitters, are two extremely crucial elements to making The Bitter Ex a success. If unable to get the proper funding for this project, we will continue to find backers and pool from other resources. Ideally, we would love to see this company take off thanks to the amazing support of Kickstarter contributions.
The Bitter Ex has been our brainchild for a few years now, and our passion and love for making these bitters hasn’t dwindled. Through your support, we hope to have The Bitter Ex up and running by late summer. Every time someone tries our bitters and gets excited it also gives us the drive to keep pushing. The Bitter Ex will come to fruition and we hope to be able to power through with the help of amazing people who believe in what we do (and who love bitters).Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
