About

“CLAIRE DAVEY HAS MADE IRELAND THINK TWICE ABOUT DRINKS. HER AMERICA VILLAGE APOTHECARY CONCOCTIONS – SYRUPS; BITTERS; TINCTURES – ARE ALREADY THE FIRST PORT OF CALL FOR EVERY ASPIRING MIXOLOGIST, AND WHAT MS DAVEY DOES IS SIMPLE, AND PROFOUND: SHE DISTILLS NATURE, AND PUTS IT IN YOUR GLASS.”
— JOHN & SALLY MCKENNAS' GUIDES

We believe that a good drink is as important as a good meal.

We make unique syrups, Tinctures and Bitters for creating craft beverages or for use with food. We use locally foraged flavours and carefully sourced ingredients.

We pick and source plants carefully, when in season and when at their most potent.

America Village Apothecary was created by Claire Davey in the heart of America Village/Baile Mheiriceá, which is located in north Connemara, Co. Galway in 2013.

Our products are made in small batches, our syrups are cooked quickly at lower temperatures so as not to loose flavours and become too sugar-driven. Our Tinctures and Bitters are compounded in spirits that are carefully formulated in our Spirits & Fermentation bonded warehouse.

An important part of our work and product portfolio is to share ideas and to collaborate with other small business. We have sourced vegetables from  LEAF & ROOT CSA FARM for our Bitters; Have made Chocolate Bitters with  BEAN AND GOOSE  whom we sourced Cocoa Nibs from and have partnered with PRIZEFIGHT WHISKEY  to develop a 'One Inch Punch' Peppermint Cordial.

Our product portfolio is constantly a work in progress. We aim to be innovative and to develop new techniques and tools for flavour extraction.
