Good news for all cocktail connoisseurs looking for something new to spice up their craft cocktail parties. A Boca Raton-based handcrafted food & beverage startup, Dugan & Dame, has recently introduced a series of exclusive cocktail bitters and tonics to Kickstarter.
The Kickstarter campaign is geared to raise around $6,000 by May 16, 2019.
“Every great drink starts and ends with a plant. We bring you the best damn cocktail bitters and tonic syrups that will take your cocktail party to a new level altogether. And as a bonus, they can actually provide some additional healing benefits”, chuckled Angela, the co-founder of Dugan and Dame.
Apart from her vast experience in making craft cocktails, Angela also holds a background in holistic nutrition as well as a passion for herbalism. Together with her husband, she is set out to create exquisite cocktail allies which not only enhance cocktail flavors but the botanicals and extraction methods used can actually benefit the individual imbibing as well. The husband-wife initiative is supported by their long-time friends Joe Ciaramella, an advertising professional, and beverage industry veteran Rich Nussbaum.
“All the tonics and bitters you will find at Dugan and Dame are made from 100% botanicals. Unlike other cocktail tonic and bitters brands, we never use any artificial ingredients and/or flavor enhancers. Most importantly, we have banked on traditional herbal techniques to extract maximum benefits from the constituents of each herb used. The result is a series of tonics and bitters that can assure the deepest and fullest flavor profile. Our botanicals, spices, and roots are simmered for a specified amount of time to bring in the much-desired depth in the tonics while extracting those constituents. We are now looking for mass production and hence this Kickstarter campaign. Your generous support will enable us to make the cocktail world even more exciting and your cocktail parties spicier and healthier.”
Dugan and Dame has come up with two bitters and two tonics- Bitter Ghost Ghost Pepper Bitters, Morning Wood Bitters, Classic Tonic, and Five Spice Tonic. Made from a wide range of herbs, bitters plants as well as ghost peppers, the Bitter Ghost fires the heat and assures a lingering taste. These bitters can also help improve digestion when mixed with soda.
The Morning Wood represents a unique mix of botanicals carefully mixed to create a coffee-based bitter with a subtle oaky finish. The Classic Tonic is made from a blend of herbs and Juniper Berries with Quassia bark as a bittering agent. On the other hand, Five Spice Tonic celebrates Chinese cuisine by utilizing the five spices representing the five flavor profiles and adding intensity and depth to cocktails.
A cool host of rewards are waiting for backers. These include significant discounts on the Dugan and Dame bitters and tonics, D&D swag pack, cocktail recipe book and so on. Higher pledges reaching $500 will be honored with cocktail classes while pledges reaching $1,000 will be rewarded with exclusive private in-home cocktail classes lead by “The Dame” herself.
