Dashfire owner Lee Egbert spent 18 months in China learning about local herbs and spices. This unique, licorice-redolent bitters recipe is the result of his extensive study and passion.


    Inflect your next cocktail creation with traditional herbs and spices of China when you pick up a bottle of these unique, licorice-redolent bitters by Dashfire.

    This ancient Chinese bitters recipe is the outgrowth of Dashfire Bitters owner Lee Egbert's 18 months living and teaching in China, where he made a point of learning first-hand about local herbs and spices as well as spirits and food. His students called him Mr. Lee, inspiring the bitters' name.

    Handcrafted in small batches in St. Paul, Minnesota, Mr. Lee's Ancient Chinese Secret Cocktail Bitters are made from premium fresh mandarin rind, ginger, galanga root, star of anise, tamarind, Sichuan peppercorn, and other secret ingredients, resulting in a singular flavor profile that can best be described as mirroring Chinese five-spice. Each 1.7-ounce, waxed-sealed, rounded glass bottle is equipped with a dasher-style top for precise dispensing.

    Mirroring the classic Chinese five-spice flavor, this bitters recipe is a perfect ingredient in gin cocktails such as the Martinez.

    This recipe is part of Dashfire's Vagabond Series of bitters inspired by owner Lee Egbert's love of travel and desire to learn all he can about the flavors of different cultures. Lee lived in China for a year and a half and traveled extensively in Thailand, Malaysia, India, Sri Lanka, Morocco, Spain, Portugal, Italy, Mexico, Guatemala, and Belize, where he had the opportunity to learn first-hand about local herbs and spices as well as spirits and food. Every Dashfire bottle is a reflection of his passion and respect for those experiences.
