House-made Bitters in the Northwest

For an upcoming story in Northwest Palate magazine, I am looking for recommendations of bar/lounges in Seattle and vicinity 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 Vancouver/Victoria and Portland . . . and I already know about Portland places) 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've also posted this on the Pacific Northwest and Vancouver, BC & Western Canada boards for local expertise, but it has been recommended there that I post it here as well.

I'd appreciate any suggestions . . .

Jamie Boudreau at Vessel makes several types of bitters, and would be a good source. At Zig Zag Cafe, co-owner Kacy Fitch has also done some experimentation with bitters. Licorous, on Capitol Hill, had some house-made bitters when I was there last, but I'm not sure who's doing their bar program right now. It may also be worthwhile to check in with the folks at Sambar, in Ballard.
