Back in the pre-prohibition days, a bar was known for its bitters as well as its signature drinks (indeed, the bitters were a crucial component). We thought it only fitting that our signature drinking vessels from Pickman's Cove and the Gilman House lounge had complimentary bitters of their own. It's the whole deal. Killer label, shelf appeal, great taste, awesome back story...the perfect compliment to your home or professional bar.
If you are newer to this whole “bitters thing,” you can substitute Fiendishly Tropical Bitters in almost any recipes that call for aromatic bitters. You can also use them:
A) In any Booze& drink: Captain & Coke, Dark & Stormy, etc.(to taste, maybe 4-7 drops)
B) In something like a highball that is mostly booze and bitters.(several drops to taste)
C) Add a few drops on top of vanilla ice crème and fruit (try peaches), (About 4 drops)
D) Add a few drops to a flute of Champaign for added zest.
You’ll mostly notice the bitters on the “nose” (smell/taste) and “finish” (aftertaste) of a cocktail Enjoy!
Fiendish Tom Collins/Tom Collinsport:
An Anachronistic Bijou
* 1 1/2 ounces dry gin
* 1/2 ounce vermouth
* 1/2 ounce Chartreuse 
* half-dropper of Horror Infused Fiendishly Tropical Bitters
Combine ingredients in a mixing glass and fill with cracked ice. Stir well for 20 seconds and strain into chilled cocktail glass. Twist a piece of lemon peel over the drink and use as garnish.

Horror In Clay LLC
-  We like our Rhum Old-Fashions the old fashioned way...with BOOZE in 'em.
-  From Wikipedia - By 1806, American publications referenced the popularity of a new preparation termed cocktail, which was described as a combination of “a stimulating liquor, composed of spirits of any kind, sugar, water, and bitters." - That's right kiddies....if it don't got bitters in it, it ain't a cocktail. ^/|\^
-  From Bittercube.com - Bittercube Bitters utilize spirits from Yahara Bay Distillers. The bitters are created by hand, peeling hundreds of pounds of citrus, weighing dozens of spices, and decorticating vanilla beans, among other time consuming tasks! Bittercube Bitters do not use any extracts or oils, but only “raw” ingredients.
-  I'm told this is another way to use up those dregs of vermouth and Chartreues you may have laying around.
Horror In Clay, like any small business, benefits greatly from word of mouth, product reviews, and shared images etc on social media. Thank you again for all your support!
