Lemon Bitters

The Bitter Truth Lemon Bitters »The Bitter Truth – Lemon Bitters« has a decadent aroma of hot lemon tea with honey. Fresh, fruity and dense with spice, this little blonde has sherbet flavors mingling with coriander seed and a light touch of toasted cardamom. The pithy lemon brings out the charm in light or sharp mixed drinks and slips deliciously into gin or white rum numbers. Try with anything from a cobbler to a kamikaze.

»The Bitter Truth – Lemon Bitters« were the first lemon bitters on the market. They add the liveliness and freshness of lemons to every cocktail. They are primarily suited for drinks that are based on clear spirits like Vodka, Gin and Silver Tequila, but also go well with many other spirits and liqueurs.

Tasting Notes:
Fresh and fruity-tangy with an unbelievably intense citrus note. They are bitter to the taste with flavorful notes of coriander and cardamom in the background.
