5. An avowed paganist in a time of religious strife, she became the victim of a brutal murder at the hands of Christian zealots. Today she is remembered as a powerful symbol of intellectual freedom and an aspirational feminist.
6. The reddish coloring of this bitters comes from a traditional method, by which cochineal beetles are dried and crushed up to produce a beautiful pigment. This natural method used to be how all bitters got their color, though most are now artificially colored. Hypatia is honored with tradition.
