Best Bars for House-made Bitters?

For an upcoming story in Northwest Palate magazine, I am looking for recommendations of bar/lounges in Vancouver and/or Victoria who are known for their house-made bitters. The article will cover bitters in general, but we want to highlight a few select Northwest places (which will also include Seattle and Portland) that are going that extra step by making in-house bitters. I'm not necessarily looking for recipes, just some good places to visit and to interview on the role of bitters in local, contemporary cocktails, and why the establishment makes their own.

I could post this in the Spirits board, but I really want to get local expertise!

I'd appreciate any suggestions . . .

Thanks!

No where in Victoria. The only place in Victoria that has anything more than Angosturna bitters is Brasserie L'ecole. As for Vancouver Jamie Bourdreau used to make his own for Lumiere, but he has since moved to Vessel in Seattle. Where he does make a few house made bitters. I dont think anywhere in Vancouver makes bitters.

I cannot think of any bars making there own. Alot of bars do buy some great bitters for their cocktail programmes but home made bitters that would be intriguing and a great article.
