The Final Week!

Here we are, the final week of the campaign.  So far we are 179% funded with 150 backers and I could not be more thrilled!  We are ever so close to reaching the stretch goal of $7000 and introducing Five by Five's one of a kind citrus bitters to the world!  So, now is the time to get a hold of all friends and family that might be interested in these cocktail bitters and send them this link.  The more people this campaign reaches in the next week, the more likely you all will have the choice between two different flavors of bitters!

Things on my end have been full of a lot of exciting activities.  The space where the bitters will come to life has been finalized, and I will begin moving in tomorrow!  This space is ideal for this project, so I am so glad to finally have my name down on paper.  Aside from that, paperwork has been filed, equipment has been quoted and budgets have been reviewed.  These are all the necessary logistical steps to ensure that when this campaign ends, I can get started immediately making these bitters. 

Thank you all for you support thus far!  I hope we can surpass the stretch goal within the next week!  Until then, stay tuned for updates and have a look at the website which is slowly coming to life. The next step is updating the recipes section!
