At Bulls Bay we believe in supporting our local economy and small business owners as much as possible. We work with the incredibly talented Blake Suarez on all of our branding needs (Hey, Blake!) who suggested to his friends at Bittermilk, a local cocktail mixer producer; they should consider using our salts in their No. 5 Charred Grapefruit Tonic. It seemed natural we should head out to their plant to learn a bit more about their company and products, one of which is their No 1.Bourbon Barrel Aged Old Fashioned. We discovered that while there are many uses for the left over bourbon barrels the fine folks at Bittermilk could think of, we all agreed that smoking our Charleston Flake Salt using these barrels was a delicious idea. Shortly thereafter, our Bourbon Barrel Smoked Flake joined our salt line up and has been a staple ever since.
The owners of Bittermilk, Joe and MariElena Raya, also run a unique cocktail bar in Charleston. If you’re a local, or planning to visit, be sure to hit up the Gin Joint on East Bay for a the best cocktail in town. Gin Joint also uses our salts in some of their other craft concoctions. Bittermilk is the best way to enjoy a similar cocktail experience at home.
Whether local or not, if you’re looking for the perfect gift for the cocktail lover in your life, look no further than one of our holiday gift packs. We have two we’ve collaborated with the folks at Bittermilk on – Bittermilk No 1 Bourbon Barrel Aged Old Fashioned (8floz) and our Bourbon Barrel Smoked Flake (4oz), and Bittermilk No 5 Charred Grapfruit Tonic Featuring Bulls Bay Sea Salt (17floz) and our Carolina Margarita Salt (34oz).
