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 reminds one 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 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!
