My friends and I are flying in to Seattle next week. I'm hoping to pick up some bitters for making cocktails at our campsite.

Thank you in advance.

I'll post some pics after the trip.

Hopefully someone finds this thread while it is still showing in the " recent topics " box.

Why not take your bitters with you? The bottles don't take much space. The only thing to keep in mind is that you will need to keep them in your checked luggage, unless you repackage them into smaller < 3 oz containers. Also make sure to double-bag in case of leaks.

Well if you have time to shoot down to Portland, The Meadow has the best selection of bitters and tinctures and infusions (oh my!) I've ever seen. It's about a 2 hour drive, but I think it's worth it. And they have a wall of chocolate and lots of interesting salts as well. I have pictures of the store in my blog.

DeLaurenti's in Pikes Place Market has a pretty decent selection of bitters and should be pretty easy to get to.

How are you going to get ice at the campsite?

We will be car camping with a generator and Kold-draft machine.

Actually we will only be making cocktails on the first nights at each campsite. Second night will be for batched/bottled cocktails and the later nights we will be drinking wine.

Thank you for the help.

Okay, I seriously want to camp with you.

besides DeLaurenti there is a place called picnic on Phinney and they sell a gift pack of 4 Scrappy's Bitters made right here in Seattle. They also carry Dolin & Cocchi.
