our roots

In 2010 our owner, Andrea, a cake designer at the time, fed-up with the artificial flavorings & extracts available to her decided making her own with real ingredients. Right around this time, she also developed an obsession with whiskey, handcrafted cocktails and their relationship with bitters. This obsession lead her to begin experimenting with making her own bitters, in the basement of her home, eventually dubbed" the bitters lab" to use in her culinary creations. After many years testing and perfecting her recipes she decided it was time to share her bitters with the community.  

In 2014 she created Bittersweet and launched at the local farmers markets. At Bittersweet she served brûléed fruit made with organic infused sugars, house-made bitters with a bit of fire.

Over the course of the season, at Bittersweet, she found that people not only loved the desserts she offered, but everyone kept wondering when they could get the bitters. So in 2015 she decided to launch Utah's first premium cocktail bitters company, she closed Bittersweet, and re-opened as Bitters Lab.
