Inspired by the comments of the previous post, I started wondering about making my own bitters.

A little googling brings me to this delicious-looking recipe for cherry bitters , but how on earth does one get hold of milk thistle or some of the other weird herbs listed? It must be quite expensive to do. I've infused sprits and made my own flavoured syrups before but not bitters. What I want to know is have any of you ever tried it, or know someone that has, and how did it turn out? Is it not worth it unless you make large quantities? Any good recipes?
