The Bitter Truth ELIXIER With a thick dark, rich color »The Bitter Truth – Elixier« has an aroma that make you want to don lederhosen and build an open log fire. After a nose of pine ash, lemon balm and spruce you’ll tuck into the hearty flavors of stewed rhubarb, dark chocolate, sweet coffee, and wild flora like mint and gentian to totally thigh slap your palate. It is as delicate and balanced as a cuckoo clock and will compete with the finest vermouths (but has an alcohol content that defies the need for refrigeration). Enjoy Elixier in a Mont Blanc Manhattan or Northern Negroni or enjoy it neat after a rich meal or long yodeling session.

»The Bitter Truth – Elixier« is a digestive liqueur that blurs the lines of conventional wisdom. Firmly rooted in the traditions of both classic sweet vermouths and alpine digestive tonics. Enjoy Elixier in a pre-dinner Manhattan or Negroni or enjoy it neat after a rich meal to aid digestion. It’s as delicate as the finest vermouths with an alcohol content that allows it to defy oxidation and the need for refrigeration. It’s thoroughly intriguing and the most astounding new addition to the cocktailian arsenal.

Tasting Notes:
Elixier is velvety smooth while at the same time clean, aromatic and herbaceous. It embodies the caramel sweetness of port and the bitter flavors of a classic Italian Amaro.
