About Jack Rudy Aromatic Bitters
Jack Rudy was a pilot, inventor, and craftsman, who once flew an airplane under the Ohio River Bridge on a dare. He was an aircraft mechanic during the Second World War and an engineer after that. He was also the great-grandfather of the creators of Jack Rudy Cocktail Co., a family operation from Charleston, SC, and Lexington, KY. The company's goal is "to take long-forgotten staples of the American bar and reinvent them, in an effort to drink like our great-grandparents might once have."
While they have various bar tools and accessories on offer, their main focus is on mixers. These are crafted in small batches and include syrups, tonics, bitters, as well as cocktail cherries and brined olives. Jack Rudy Aromatic Bitters is a versatile bitters that was developed in collaboration with Cocktail Punk in Boulder, Colorado. Burnt cane sugar serves as the base, with citrus, winter spices, and bittering agents providing complexity. It's the perfect match for cocktails such as the old fashioned and Manhattan. They even suggest adding a few drops to soda water or ginger ale, supposedly taking the edge off a hangover!

The history of cocktails dates back to the not-so-good days of prohibition when people started to mix drinks trying to make the homemade or bootlegged liquor drinkable.
But things have changed since then, and cocktails have become increasingly popular with modern pop culture, from classics like Martini, Old Fashioned, or Negroni, to the more festive versions like Margaritas and Mojitos becoming staples in most bars.
