Berkshire Mountain Distillers (BMD) has teamed up with Barrington Coffee Roasting Company to create a signature aromatic coffee bitters from the heart of the Berkshires. BMD Coffee Bitters combine Barrington Coffee’s Sumatra Aceh and a proprietary selection of dark botanicals that form a rich marriage between sweet, savory and dry cocktail flavors.
This summer, we have created a lineup of cocktails, mocktails, and beer drink recipes using BMD Coffee Bitters designed to refresh and enhance your summer drink menu.
