We are excited to announce our new Bricks and Mortar spot at The Newberry Artisan Market, in the heart of Saugerties Village, NY. Come find us here every weekend to sample a few sips powered by spice non-alcoholic libations, made with our Artisan Syrups, hand crafted garnishes, to learn new recipes and rediscover the world of spices.

This iconic building was once home to the beloved 5 & 10 general store called JJ Newberry Co. which closed in the 1990’s. And now after an extensive renovation, this 10K sq ft vintage brick building, although expansive and modern, has kept much of its original charm, with its beautiful fixtures and its 14ft high original tin ceilings.

"For Us the ultimate drink is all about balance, taste, texture, color, and smell. Our Ayurveda perspective is to love opening the five senses using a variety of spices, flowers, and herbs that all have medicinal benefits," Nandini says.

Our Artisan Syrups are lovingly made by hand in the Hudson Valley and can be bought online or at the following stores here.

They come in three flavors, Lemongrass + Kaffir Lime Leaf, Hibiscus + Rose Petal, and Black Cardamom + Star Anise.
