The Perfect Manhattan Kit

The Perfect Manhattan Kit


"My husband loves a good Manhattan. He works late a lot, often with his whole team, so this will be the perfect addition to the office bar cart when the group needs a little...something."—Kate, Purchasing Team


Manhattan: Dazzling and dark, glittering and glamorous, exhilarating and seductive. We're not just talking about any Manhattan, we're talking about THE Manhattan. You know, the one sipped elegantly after a hard day's work, staring out at the city skyline from your penthouse roof deck (or your couch, let's be real).

Clearly we have a cocktail crush, so we've concocted a taster in its honor. It's got all you need to turn your living room into a swanky cocktail bar, with indie ingredients to make swoon-worthy versions of this classic drink.

A great gift for your favorite newlyweds to your stylish best friend to your weekend hosts, this kit is dressed to impress: rich local rye and corn whiskey, a top-notch sweet vermouth, bespoke bitters and glistening cocktail cherries beckon.

So take Manhattan (okay, the Bronx and Staten Island, too).

.5 ounce Vya Sweet Vermouth
2-3 dashes Hella Bitter Aromatic Cocktail Bitters

Our goal is to always send out the freshest possible small-batch goodies. Occasionally we'll ship something slightly different than what's listed here, but we promise it will be equally delicious!
