To protect precious but volatile compounds from destructive light (especially sunlight), apothecaries of old have often employed amber bottles to filter the light.

When we began River Peak Apothecary, much like its motherland barbershop of Beardsgaard, it was with some scrounged extra funds, a hiking of...
