Fee Brothers

Fee Brothers, also known as "The House of Fee by the Genesee since eighteen hundred and sixty-three", is a four-generation-old manufacturer of cocktail mixes, bitters, flavoring syrups, iced cappuccino mix and other beverage ingredients.[1] The company, located in Rochester, New York, United States, is currently run by Jack Fee and his children Ellen Fee and Joe Fee.[2]

Fee Brothers creates over 100 different products. Many of their products have applications in cooking as well. They make cocktail mixes, syrups, botanical waters, iced cappuccino mix, and bitters.

Bitters are a popular ingredient in cocktails but are gaining popularity in both beverages and cooking. Bitters, likely named due to their concentration of flavoring perceived as bitter when tasted straight, are an essential balancing tool in creation of a beverage. They serve to give beverages depth of flavor and act to balance out other flavors that may be used.
