September 19 7pm – 8:30pm (Doors open at 6:00 for refreshments & strolling.)
Cindy Capparelli, proprietor of Portland Bitters Project, teams with The Meadow to help us understand the world of bitters and how to make the best use of them. Bitters have been around a long time but with literally hundreds on the market today, many of us are uncertain about where to begin. We will learn about bitters’ original medicinal history as well as their modern-day uses. And we will learn how essential bitters are made – starting with organic roots, barks, and seeds. Then, in the tasting, we’ll experience the role that bitters can play in adding complexity and punch to new as well as classic cocktail creations.
Cindy founded the Portland Bitters Project in 2014. Mark Bitterman, the owner of The Meadow, is the author of Bitterman’s Field Guide to Bitters and Amari.
