Critter Bitters

This cocktail bitters range also experimented with insects, using toasted crickets to add a “sweet, nutty note” to drinks.

Critter Bitters currently comprises two flavours – Toasted Cricket Bitters and Pure Cricket Tincture.

Founders Lucy Knops and Julia Plevin successfully launched a crowdfunding campaign to raise US$21,000 to bring their bitters to a wider audience in October 2015, and exceeded their target by reaching US$25,477.

According to the campaign, more than two billion people globally already eat insects on a regular basis, known as entomophagy.
