This kit includes their scrumptious Old Hollywood Ginn, a bottle of Bob’s Abbotts bitters, and El Guapo Tonic syrup. A true crowd favorite!

Old Hollywood Ginn
A recipe that’s LA Confidential and so very “Hush Hush,” Old Hollywood Ginn is a speakeasy-style spirit infused with nine rare botanicals plus a touch of oak for a flavor that’s sure to take you back to late suppers at the Brown Derby!

Bob’s Abbotts Bitters
Naturally distinctive perfume of Tahitian vanilla pods with subtle fragrant hints of cacao and bitter chocolate finish. Bob’s Abbott’s offers an intriguing mix of ingredients that come alive in the mouth. Very aromatic, complex and well-rounded, Abbotts enhances the individual flavors rather than overpowering them. The Abbotts was then aged for three months in a medium charred oak barrel. This process produced a more rounded, mellow flavor with many layers of complexity.

El Guapo Tonic
This tonic was created through much research of classic recipes from a time when tonic was for more than just flavor. Original tonics were created using cinchona bark as it was the source of quinine. It’s purpose? To prevent malaria! The trouble was quinine is extremely bitter. With that in mind sugar was added for sweetness and citrus was added for tartness. In addition, other herbs and spices made it into various recipes. El Guapo’s Tonic is highly concentrated and very thick, to make tonic water simply add 1/4 to 1/2 of an ounce of tonic syrup to three ounces carbonated or sparkling mineral water.
