Ritual Began Because We Love To Drink
To eat too, and have adventures. We like to wrestle with our kids and climb mountains. We like to make art and we like to stay out too late laughing. We, by the way, are three friends, two of whom share a bed and a child. We're passionate foodies and damn good cooks, so Ritual started in our kitchens.
We learned how to blend jambu and prickly ash, how to extract the essence of blue agave, reduce the oil in juniper and heighten the perfume of pine. We taste-tested vanilla from Madagascar against vanilla from China. We sought guidance from master chefs and held tasting sessions for Chicago's best bartenders.
