Two colleagues of Chinese medicine have mingled their knowledge of Eastern health with their passion for reviving hand-crafted, old-fashioned libations. Caylie See and Andrew Perzigian’s drinking vinegars are the confluence of East and West.
In Asian cultures, vinegars have been consumed for centuries for longevity, and now this tradition has a San Francisco twist - an infusion of local, seasonal fruits and roots. These restorative spirits combine delicate flavors with the curative qualities in each tonic.
Caylie See comes from a long lineage of California chocolatiers, and her inspiration for local food production has arisen from this heritage. Her influences harken back to San Francisco’s prohibition-era trade industry, and she strives to bottle this port town nostalgia in Yum Yum Tonics. Caylie loves developing and imbibing concoctions that toast the many influences of San Francisco’s cocktail culture.
Andrew Perzigian is a lawyer turned forager. He draws on his skills at excavating information to delve into the historical and medicinal aspects of plants to carefully select ingredients for Yum Yum Tonics. His remedies instill herbalism into urban elegance.
