The ultimate craft cocktail cherry

This is a cherry designed to taste like…wait for it…a real cherry. Your cocktail deserves these all-natural, small-batch beauties.

Our mission is simple; to make the best cherries for craft cocktails.

Most American maraschino cherries are bleached and brined in underground tanks before being injected with color and “flavor”. Many of the European made cherries are candied in a thick syrup that works for some preferences but left us wanting more acidity, more complexity, and more real cherry texture.

We take care of what goes into each jar of cherries.

The recipe has gone through dozens of iterations until we landed on our Great Lakes Edition, a gentle and warming blend of tart Balaton cherries, demerara sugar, vanilla bean, rose petals, tellicherry black peppercorn, star anise and a generous glug of bourbon.

"Mess Hall Cocktail Cherries are balanced and complex while being versatile enough to use as a garnish or muddled component in any cocktail that calls for a cherry. We love knowing where they are grown and how they are made... and as a bonus, they are more economical than other high-end cherries out there."
