Like all good bloggers, I relentlessly read anyone who links to me. It makes me feel pretty. One of the links to this month’s MxMo was from Serious Eats, and down in the comments on that post was a link to a small San Francisco company called Small Hand Foods.
Small Hand Foods makes a small but important selection of fresh, made from scratch drink ingredients that they mostly sell to high end Bay Area cocktail bars. No mail order, sad to say. I guess if they did do mail order on any scale it’d ruin the caché.
I’d certainly love it if I could buy a selection of Gomme Syrups, Orgeat and the like around here. But since the customers are mostly high-end cocktail bars, SHF would not make it long in Columbus.
All that said, I wonder if there would be sufficient market for a small, mail-order vendor of artisanal syrups and tinctures.
