    Brighten Your Spirits with Shrub District Cocktail Vinegars

    Hi! I'm Don. I started making cocktail vinegars (aka shrubs) over 10 years ago. Back then you couldn't buy this stuff in a store. You could barely find a decent bottle of bitters, and you certainly couldn't find real grenadine or complex tonics. Well, the world has come to it's senses and here in 2017, craft cocktails can be found in almost every town in America.

    So many of our best memories are formed around the dinner table or over a shared drink. This kind of quality time is what really matters. That's where we come in.

    Shrub District makes cocktail vinegars so you don't have to. Whether you want to spend your time playing with other things—ice, tools, amaro, infusions, batching, aging—or just can't seem to keep fresh limes around, we've got a perfectly balanced set of flavors that are a blast behind the bar, and perfectly balanced to pair with any spirit.

    Our Mission:

    Our mission is to make your drinking life easier and more fun. Anyone can make an amazing craft cocktail. I promise, it’s not that hard. 1 part shrub, 2 parts spirit, ice and away we go!

    Shrub District is committed to making the highest quality natural products, helping our customers make better drinks, and supporting the farms, farmers, and communities that grow our food.

    Our shelf stable, perfectly balanced, real fruit cocktail vinegars are guaranteed to Brighten Your Spirits.

    We promise:

    to use only real fruit
    to never use additives
    to source locally whenever possible
    to always try your drink recipe

    Why “shrub?”:

    Before refrigeration, farmers used vinegar to preserve excess fruit during harvest. Wait a bit, then add some sugar and you’ve got “shrub.” Like the word alcohol itself, the term “shrub” originated in the Middle East. It’s an old art and we’re bringing it back and into the bar.

    Shrub District cocktail vinegars are the purest expression of fruit you can find. From nose to lingering finish, our flavors capture the season in a bottle. Why? Because we use only fresh whole fruit, herbs, and spices. Shrub District Cocktail Vinegars (aka “shrubs”) are proudly Made in DC.

    Our Growers:

    At Shrub District, we source as much as possible from local farmers. Here’s are some of our farm friends:

    78 Acres Farm, Smithsburg, MD – Strawberries
    Three Spring Fruit Farm, Wenksville, PA – Apples
    Whalen Farms, Shamong, NJ - Cranberries

    We compost all of our waste with Veteran Compost, giving back to the earth and to our community.
