The Bitter Truth is proud to announce that The Bitter Truth Celery Bitters took top prize in the Best New Product category at the Tales of the Cocktail® Spirited Awards® Ceremony this past Saturday July 24th in New Orleans, Louisiana. The competition was stiff this year with other nominees, Crème Yvette by Cooper Spirits, The Meehan Cocktail Bag by Jim Meehan and Cocktail Kingdom’s Barware, also in the running. But it was Bitter Truth founders Stephan Berg and Alexander Hauck who took the stage at the world-renowned Roosevelt Hotel ballroom to accept the prize of Best New Product 2010.
Each year Tales of the Cocktail® celebrates the art and craft of cocktails by bringing together the world’s best in the cocktail community to the city of New Orleans for a five-day long feast of dinners, seminars, tastings, competitions and events. The week culminates in the Spirited Awards® Ceremony where the very best bars, authors, establishments, products and visionaries are honored with Riedel Crystal awards from their peers and an international judging committee. In his acceptance speech, Bitter Truth Founder Alexander Hauck thanked The Bitter Truth`s importer, PR maven Debbie Rizzo and, “All the people who love and use cocktail bitters…especially our brand!”
This most recent award adds to our continuing record of excellence in the production of bitters.
