This book explores in depth, the history and use of 75 bitter, medicinal herbs. Many medicinal herbs have bitter qualities and are among the most ancient herbs used and documented in human history. After discovering that many of the herbs were useful both to aid digestion and to help manage my asthma, I began on the path to making my own digestive and cocktail bitters. That began a series of articles and a great deal of historical research, eventually leading to this book.
This looks fabulous!!!! Well done on all your hard work!!!!! I wonder if you might be interested in discussing the book on my Substack (perhaps in the form of a review), or potentially joining me on a podcast to discuss bitters (what a topic that is!!!!) I'm currently in the process of creating a book club list as well as setting up a seasonal "listen in" so please feel free to drop me a line if this might be of interest to you!
