One Handsome Bastard Scottsdale Micro-Distillery

Old Town Scottsdale’s first and only micro-distillery, One Handsome Bastard, crafts small-batch gin and vodkas in collaboration with Blue Clover Spirits and dishes up elevated bar eats.

One Handsome Bastard was opened by Trish and Bren Ritchie–a mother-daughter duo with a greater purpose–earlier this year. The bar pays homage to their late husband and father, Brad Ritchie, who would often look in the mirror and say with a wink and smile, “That’s one handsome bastard.” To honor his legacy, One Handsome Bastard donates 10 percent of its spirit profits to the fight against cancer. 

The bar and grill has an industrial aesthetic complete with exposed brick, an array of lightbulbs hanging over the large concrete bar and garage-like doors that separate the indoor bar and dining room from the vast outdoor patio. Guests can also peek at the glass-enclosed micro-distillery in the back of the bar to get a glimpse of how the Blue Clover Vodka and Gin are made.

Blue Clover’s Vodka, Gin and Bitters are crafted from Midwest corn and infused with locally sourced botanicals, giving them a distinctive Southwest flair. A majority of the craft cocktails on the menu use an array of Blue Clover Vodka and Gin flavors, including grapefruit, lemon and blood orange-infused spirits. The Spring Fling Lemonade, made with Blue Clover Lemon Vodka, prickly pear and garnished with mint, is the perfect refreshing cocktail to sip on all summer long. Another staple on the menu is the espresso martini crafted with Blue Clover Vodka, Kahlua and espresso, offering a rich flavor with chocolate undertones.

In addition to craft cocktails, One Handsome Bastard offers an elevated twist on traditional bar food. Fan-favorite starters include wings, fried guacamole, garlic-parmesan sweet potato tots and pub pretzels served with homemade beer cheese and honey mustard. Entrees include an array of salads, flatbreads, burgers, sandwiches and the dessert of the day.

One Handsome Bastard is open Sunday to Thursday, from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m., and Friday and Saturday, from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. Happy hour is available Monday to Friday, from 4:30 to 7:30 p.m., offering half-priced cocktails and discounts of wine and draft beers.
