Where to find Bitters (SEA)

I am looking to make some drinks at home that call for bitters (specifically orange). Does anybody have any idea where I might find a store that has any in stock in the Seattle area.

So far I have contacted:
Univ. Liquor Store
Northgate Liquor Store
Sodo Liquor Store
Univ. QFC
Roosevelt QFC
and Roosevelt Safeway.

All are out of stock.

Where do the restaurants and bars get em?

Thanks!

  1. Try DeLaurenti in Pike Place - they've been suggested before for bitters-hunters.

    1. (PDX_) I know it's not Seattle but At the Meadow has a great selection of bitters.

      1. I am pretty sure I have bought them at Metropolitan Market and seen them at DeLaurenti's. I have also bought them online at amazon (amazon is local!) when mailing gifts to folks. I got a fun set of 6 different bitters flavors to send as gifts one year.

          Amazon has a good selection; unfortunately it has to be shipped, which costs 80% of the actual product. I plan on giving DeLaurenti's, Metro, and Whole Foods a call this afternoon.

            DeLaurenti's wins. They had a very good selection of bitters. Hooray.

          2. Our own dear chow.com has some good bitters recipes easy and fun to make http://www.chow.com/stories/11154

            1. Hey Mike, I was at the Broadway (Capitol Hill) liquor store yesterday & they were fully stocked with Regan's Orange Bitters. Go get 'em!
