Maker: DRAM Apothecary
Location: Silver Plume, Colorado
Wares: Locally sourced bitters, teas and syrups
Days spent foraging in the plains and parries combined with nights behind a craft cocktail bar eventually turned into a fusion of two passions for Colorado native Shae Whitney, who studied Food Science, Ecological Agriculture and Botany in college.
Whitney’s brainchild, DRAM Apothecary, is located in a small, historic building in a Colorado ghost town. It first was a mining supply shop and changed into a bakery before ultimately becoming the headquarters for Whitney’s botanical work.
DRAM specializes in bitters, teas and syrups crafted from wild herbs that Whitney collects herself. All have a healing element and are “designed to taste as wonderful as they will make your body feel.”
Pair black coffee with DRAM Pine Syrup, try homemade Colorado Pine Soda or make a shows-topping brunch cocktail with Hair of the Dog Bitters. Good health starts with a good drink.
