Minnetonka, Minnesota


Dashfire's mission is to create hand-crafted blends that can be used by everyone who appreciates a quality cocktail, from professional bartenders to amateurs who enjoy experimenting at home with friends and family.  We create unique products that will immediately enhance your favorite cocktail, with our inspiration drawn from the classic cocktails of days gone by.

The force behind Dashfire, Lee Egbert, is driven by an unending curiosity coupled with an appetite for travel and a desire to learn all he can about the flavors and spices of different cultures.  Lee lived in China for a year and a half, and has also travelled extensively in Thailand, Malaysia, India, Sri Lanka, Morocco, Spain, Portugal, Italy, Mexico, Guatemala, and Belize, where he had the opportunity to learn first-hand about local herbs and spices as well as spirits and food.  The inspiration for all Dashfire products is drawn from these experiences and flavors, as can be clearly seen in Mr. Lee’s Ancient Chinese Secret Bitters and Dashfire’s unique line of Tinctures.  So imbibe with the peace of mind and knowledge that every effort was put into making our creations with the highest regard for the ingredients.

In honor of Dashfire winning for all their bitter products, we used bitters in all four of our 2018 specialty cocktails.


Dashfire Bitters

Bitters are Back, Baby

Credit the craft cocktail resurgence and creative horizons of bar aficionados for the renewed interest in these potent, powerful liquids. Professional mixologists say they are essential to many proper drinks.

The search for new flavor profiles to mix cocktails with, and the opportunity for innovatively flavored bitters continues to expand. The bitters here carry a whisper of Sri Lanka, Morocco, Thailand, Italy or Guatemala. We ever-curious Bootleggers savor the scnets and the discovery of new botanicals.
