Kaleena Goldsworthy-Warnock was born in Maryland and raised in upstate New York. After suffering through many years of excessive snow, she felt it was time to move to a warmer climate and found herself in Chattanooga only 6 months after visiting it for the first time. The fine folks at Flying Squirrel gave Kaleena her first job behind a bar, and she instantly fell in love with the culture, the history of craft cocktails, and the food and beverage industry. She has had the honor and privilege to travel all over the world to continue her education in this field and has worked alongside many of the industry’s top professionals.To further her education and understanding of spirits and their origins, she started studying herbalism and began volunteering at Crabtree Farms. This knowledge, combined with her love of this industry, led her to create her own line of small batch bitters and tinctures — eventually leading to the creation of her business, The Bitter Bottle. The Bitter Bottle produces small batch, locally sourced bitters — with herbs and plants coming from local farms, including Crabtree Farms.
