Ruby Bitter is Imperial Measures take on an aperitivo style amaro. Consisting of 12 interwoven botanicals creating a complex bittersweet balance. Ruby red grapefruit, gentian, rhubarb and ginseng harmonise to offer an earthy, citrus driven palate. Ideal as an aperitif or digestive, we suggest using it in a Negroni or Caffè Corretto.
The team behind Imperial Measures Distilling, Chris Jones and David Danby, met whilst working together in the hospitality industry at Adelaide's famed imbibing institution The Apothecary 1878. During this time working together they spent the better part of their lives either behind, in front, or on top of bars, all whilst chipping away at the the concept of opening a distillery. Imperial Measures Distilling was officially established in 2014 and the ball started rolling. After many a late night chat, many a knock off and many an extended phone call it all came together with an opportunity arising to do some full scale distillation with their friends at Applewood Distillery. They are now distilling in their own premises in Thebarton, Adelaide.
