“For Bitter For Worse is inspired by our long, sparky marriage and love for celebration.
A whale-watching trip on the Salish Sea led to an obscure neurological malady with a fantastic French name…As a result of this health challenge, Shelley broke up with booze.
She’s our Taste Maven. She drew from years of experience as a cocktail enthusiast to create her own nuanced non-alc recipes. Jeff’s our Reverse Bootlegger. He invented our patent-pending process and converted Shelley’s recipes to scalable formulas. For Bitter For Worse has been starting parties since 2020!”
For sober folks and those who are simply cutting back on booze, For Bitter For Worse embraces occasion and community, inviting opportunity for richer relationships. We aim to create a healthier, more inclusive culture.

For Bitter For Worse drinks are in direct response to the too-sweet mocktail. We craft cocktails for the sophisticated adult palate.
1. INGREDIENT EXTRACTION
We macerate a proprietary blend of herbs and botanicals in neutral alcohol and water to extract the flavors.
2. ALCOHOL REMOVAL
Using a still, we remove the alcohol using our patent-pending “reverse bootlegging” process. This creates our robust, bitter spirit base.
We mix our spirit base with decoctions, juices, and syrups made from Pacific Northwest ingredients.
Our drinks contain no added flavors—“natural” or otherwise—and they’re low carb, sweetened with pure monk fruit, wine grape nectar, or maple syrup. Simply put, they’re delicious AF.
