Prickly Ash Bitters – the company defunct and their product out of production since the 1910s – now finds a new life as uniquely sweet and bitter American amaro produced by Kansas’ only soil-to-sip distillery, Boot Hill Distillery.

Featuring such unique botanicals as prickly ash bark, buchu leaves, senna, coriander, grains of paradise and cubeb peppers - Prickly Ash Bitters' unique character and powerful burst of flavor is sure to spice up coffee, beef up a spritzer, or is wonderful simply added to your favorite dry sparkling white wine. 

Nose: Earthiness with hints of root vegetables. Heavy pine and cooling menthol round out the end. 

Neat: Sweet sugar right up front followed by a powerful wallop of bitterness. Complex hints of mint and citrus dominate the center, followed by a slight numbing sensation across the tongue.

On the Rocks: The addition of ice makes the Prickly Ash Bitters significantly brighter, and softens the intense hit of bitterness, forcing it to take a back seat to the complex notes of the other botanicals.
