maker press: Bittermilk in WSJ

Don't you love Bittermilk? Here's a bit of (non-Mouth) press in the Wall Street Journal.

At the Gin Joint in Charleston, S.C., owners Joe and MariElena Raya maintain an impressive arsenal of bartending tools and ingredients—but you don’t have to, thanks to their line of Bittermilk mixers. To craft a quality cocktail, simply combine one of the all-natural elixirs with a spirit, ice and perhaps some soda, plus a garnish if you really want to do it right. With just a splash of their Bourbon Barrel Aged Old Fashioned mix—made with gentian root and cinchona bark, burnt sugar, spices and orange peel—a shot of rye instantly becomes a pro-quality iteration of the classic drink. Their Tom Collins with Elderflowers & Hops, meanwhile, may ruin you for other Tom Collinses forever. Stock up on all six flavors and watch your party stock soar.
