Your aromatic bitters I have taken to affectionately calling “Dr. Berg’s Sassafras Bitters.” I don’t know if they actually contain sassafras, but they do taste like they do, and again I applaud you for giving them a flavor no other aromatic bitters have. In a word, they are complex and excellent. I’d like more, please! — Ted Haigh, www.tedhaigh.com
