Absinthia’s Bottled Spirits, a woman-owned artisan beverage company based in Oakland, California, announced that it has completed the acquisition of Nickel Dime Syrups—a portfolio of craft cocktail syrups made in California from all-natural ingredients. The purchase was finalized on Aug. 1. Terms were not disclosed.
“Nickel Dime Syrups were first created by professional bartender Jared Hirsch to bring sophistication, craft, and flavor to any cocktail program,” said J. Absinthia Vermut, founder and creator of Absinthia’s Bottled Spirits, in a press release. “I believed in their tremendous potential at that time, and I am excited to take them to the next level.”
Absinthia’s Bottled Spirits is a WBENC-certified woman-owned artisan craft beverage business. The company was created from the passion of founder Absinthia Vermut to celebrate bold and unique flavors using artisan spirits made from high-quality, organic ingredients, while respecting the environment. Nickel Dime Syrups, which are made from all-natural ingredients, join Absinthia’s two award-winning absinthes, a blanche and a verte, as well as a soon to be released barrel-aged absinthe, crafted from biodynamic grapes and distilled with organic herbs.
“The liquor business has been shaken and stirred by COVID. This has created tremendous opportunities for Nickel Dime Syrups both in giving home mixologists quality cocktail options to enjoy with friends while helping bar programs get back up to speed with mixes that deliver sophisticated sips that can be simply and quickly made,” said Vermut.
Nickel Dime Syrups are made in California in small batches from all-natural ingredients. They are alcohol free, gluten free and contain about 100 calories per 2 ounce serving, making them a bold, delicious base for cocktails or mocktails.
