3 Organic Bitters Blends from Mountain Rose Herbs

Organic herbal bitters from Mountain Rose Herbs.

Sweet, sour, salty, umami, and everyone's “favorite” flavor: bitter! Bitter herbal concoctions have a long history of use across nearly every culture. They are a unique sensory experience and must be tasted to do their important work. As soon as herbal bitters hit the tongue, the bitter compounds activate our salivary glands, which in turn send signals to our gastrointestinal system that it is time to digest. 

Many people try to avoid this important taste, but bitters are necessary for helping us maintain optimal digestive function and overall wellness. If you’re not ready to commit to salads and dishes full of bitter greens such as fresh dandelion leaves or radicchio, ease into the beneficial relationship using Mountain Rose Herbs’ expertly crafted line of herbal bitters.

Our certified organic, handcrafted bitters are blended in small batches by our extract experts and have been carefully concocted for synergistic excellence as well as delicious taste. Based in alcohol, all variants of our digestive bitters are shelf-stable and do not require refrigeration. However, for best results, be sure to keep them stored away from excess light and heat. Get to know our three fantastic bitters blends and start introducing them into your everyday wellness routine!

Chai, classic, and botanical bitters from Mountain Rose Herbs.Signature Herbal Bitters from Mountain Rose Herbs

Classic Herbal Bitters

This polyherbal blend consists of traditional digestive bitter herbs such as burdock root, elecampane root, and gentian root, which have stood the test of time in various global herbal practices. We’ve also incorporated a beloved bitter botanical from our own backyard in the Pacific Northwest—Oregon grape root. Fennel seed adds an aromatic and tasty addition, and is also traditionally used to relieve occasional gas and bloating*. Milk thistle seed acts to round out the blend by supporting the liver’s natural detoxification process.* 

Chai Herbal Bitters

Our organic chai bitters are an inviting combination of authentic chai spices blended with complimentary bitter and aromatic herbs. Organic dandelion root has been used in many systems of medicine to support digestive and gastrointestinal health.* Blended with turmeric root for a healthful kick of bitter, and aromatic herbs such as cardamom, ginger, and cinnamon will evoke thoughts of a classic cup of chai tea. This spiced botanical combination is slightly warming and is delicious added to tea, sparkling water, and even homemade sweets.

Botanical Herbal Bitters

This enlivening blend features a host of uplifting and invigorating aromatic bitter herbs such as organic lemon balm, catnip, chamomile flowers, ginger root, and angelica root. Organic artichoke leaf provides a bitter base while rosehips harmonize these unique bitters. Our organic botanical bitters have a refreshing and herbaceous flavor that can be mixed into mocktails, herbal tea, or enjoyed straight out of the bottle.

How to Use Bitters

Bitters are generally taken 15 minutes before a meal, but can also be savored after or between meals. While they are certainly enjoyed by many folks straight on the tongue, they are equally lovely when added to specialty botanical drinks or culinary creations.  This powerhouse blend should be in every foodie's toolkit. (It also travels well!) Your bitter receptors and digestive prowess will thank you!
