What is a shrub?

Simply put, a shrub is a drinking vinegar...
Historically,  flavored vinegar has been used since before Colonial times in making  water potable. In modern-day  kitchens, they can be put to use as a cocktail ingredient, a salad dressing, mixed with soda water, or even enjoyed on their own  as a refreshing cooler.

A note from our founder

Adam J Bauman C.S.S.

My first experience with shrubs  happened just six years ago. Enamored with the balance of flavor that infused vinegars could  bring  to a dish or beverage, I began experimenting on my own and have been  refining my   recipes ever since. As a bartender  for over a decade, the  industry   brought me into contact with many unique flavors,  giving  me the  opportunity to try bold flavor combinations and creative concoctions.

I bring this experience to you in the form of my products and truly hope you enjoy experimenting with them - just as I have loved making them. Thank you for your time and your support.
