We had such great fun creating cocktails with all four expressions of Batch 22. My entire staff fell in love with it!


The flavor of Batch 22 is evocative but hard to put your finger on. On the one hand, it tastes Old World, like something a Romanoff in exile might drink from a tiny, cut crystal cordial glass after dinner. On the other, it’s the mystery savory ingredient in a modern cocktail. Both ways, it’s pretty smashing.

John Kessler, James Beard Award-Winning Food Critic, Chicago

One of the most exciting developments in the culinary flavor game. Aside from the obvious impact on mixology, its potential in culinary applications is uncharted. I look eagerly forward to creating with Batch 22 and having a glass after shift.
