Old Time Aromatic Bitters

The Classic Aromatic Bitters

Aromatic bitters are the most classic of all bitters going back to the late 18th-century. They are by far the most widely used bitters since the early days of bartending and play a significant role in the history of cocktails. The Old Fashioned or the Manhattan Cocktail wouldn`t have been the same without a few dashes of aromatic bitters.

The Bitter Truth Old Time Aromatic Bitters are unsurpassed in the complexity of flavor with spices such as cinnamon, cardamom, and anise permeate prominently. The aroma is full of clove and heady with gingerbread combined with the more subtle tutti- frutti notes.

As authentic as a brown leather chesterfield, The Bitter Truth Old Time Aromatic Bitters will add a nice kick to your punch. You can mix this little pugilist in with any wood aged spirit, adding structure and complexity to cocktails.

The Bitter Truth #3

„Patience is bitter but its fruit is sweet“

Tasting Notes

Bitter and tangy to the taste. Reminiscent of cinnamon, cardamom, anise and cloves, the aroma is reminding of gingerbread.

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 as if 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!
