If you are a fan of bitters, the Sawyer is for you. Containing a whopping 28 dashes of three different kinds of bitters, it is not subtle but it is delicious. The drink was created for wd-50 chef Wylie Dufresne and was named after his daughter. Not only did we sub in our new maple based bitters but we also replaced the simple syrup with richer Runamok pure maple syrup. We are pretty sure he would like the upgrade.
