Guests are greeted by their friendly staff ready to help with any need. Browse through their selection of quality tools and glassware, their library of books, and their selection of handcrafted bitters and ingredients. Jina Paolillo was raised in Jacksonville, Florida. As a child, she always wishes that someday she would own a retail store. After spending 20 years working in the service industry, 13 of them as a bartender, she found motivation in a blossoming industry.
Cocktail supplies and bitters were an industry being assumed by artists and craftsmen, with new companies and products popping up every day. Having watched the industry growing over the years and also finding a lack of restricted access to professional quality bartending supplies and tools, the concept for The Glass Bottle Society was born.
