FREESHIPPING on orders $60+
Whats a Shrub? Well, Shrubs are not just a woody plant. Shrubs are also the historical name for drinking vinegars.
Shrubs have gone in and out of popularity since the early Egyptian period. It is the process of mixing vinegar (usually apple cider vinegar) with fruits, vegetables, herbs, spices and sugar. This provides us with endless flavor combinations which opens you up to creativity in your bar and kitchen with our creations.
There are a couple of ways to create shrubs. We believe at Cinnamonkey, that the best way to capture the complex flavors while maintaining the health benefits from our whole ingredients is to use the cold process. In return for the extra time spent creating the flavors, you get a delicious sipping vinegar that you can drink on its own or you can add it to your cocktails, zero proof beverages, salads, or as a marinade and even use them while baking. The possibilities truly are endless and are perfect for enjoying on your own , shared with your friends and loved ones, or showcased at your next intimate gathering.
Cinnamonkey's roots began at the Pink Pony Bar on Mackinac Island where Dan and Amber joined up and began their traveling adventures together. With a background in restaurants and spas, the seasonal hospitality industry was a perfect fit for the years they traveled around the country, working at favorite destination locations. Picking up new flavors and inspiration everywhere they went.
One summer while on San Juan Island, Washington, Dan began experimenting with Apple Cider Vinegar and creating Shrubs. He was intrigued by the health benefits, versatility and as a bartender he loved how great they mixed with alcohol and zero proof beverages. After years of creating them for Downriggers Restaurant, Dan decided it was time to sell his Shrubs to the public which coincided with a move back to their home state of Michigan. Where Amber and Dan are raising their 2 small children, Carson and Kinsley, whom the company is named after.
As a company we promise to always push ourselves to bring you unique flavors with top quality ingredients that leads to alot of fun in your bar and kitchen. Because you deserve it.
Love the CINNAMONKEY Family
Dan, Amber, Carson and Kinsley
