We bring you shrubbery!
Bauman's Best Botanicals is a locally owned and operated beverage producer located in Boston, MA. All products are handmade in small batches by our founder. Thank you for joining us and enjoy!
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.

Vinegar made in Massachusetts
Our vinegar is sourced from Apex Orchards of Shelburne, MA. They produce a raw apple cider vinegar with the mother still in tact; providing a rich source of all natural probiotics.
Why drink vinegar?
New medical research suggests that eating apple cider vinegar can help acid reflux, lower blood pressure, improve diabetes and support weight loss. The benefits of apple cider vinegar come from its powerful healing compounds, which include: Acetic Acid, Potassium, Magnesium, Probiotics and Enzymes.
***Acetic Acid is present in all of the vinegar recipes we use.
Products rich in Acetic Acid, such as our vinegar drinks, are a great way to start your morning as they can help to settle the stomach and wake up your digestive system for the day!
How to use our shrubs
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.
