Following the great success of The Bitter Truth Celery Bitters, we were working on expanding our portfolio to savory flavors in cocktails & drinks for a few years now. Cucumber has a very delicate flavor, but the downside is that cucumber consists mainly of water and very little flavor. Further to that the fragile notes one can find in freshly cut cucumber will change quickly and the delicate top notes are hard to capture.
Saying so, we decided to mash the freshest cucumber available and then distill the mash to form a stable base which is then blended with a delicate selection of herbs and spices to create memories of the english countryside, summertime and light spirits. Already thirsty? The Bitter Truth Cucumber Bitters are first available in the USA – for all other markets from july/august 2015 on.
