“A cocktail cabinet without Angostura is like a kitchen without salt and pepper.”
Angostura aromatic bitters adds a layer of complexity, intensifies the flavour of other ingredients, counteracts the harshness of acidic contents and decreases the harshness of spirits. But it doesn’t stop there – it also helps cleanse the palate and aid in digestion.
This is the world's most famous bitters. Created in 1824 by a German, Dr Johann Seigert, who first made to help cure stomach issues that soldiers were facing because of a change in diet. Angostura bitters is deeply rooted in cocktail culture, so it is an essential ingredient for classic drinks like the Old Fashioned, Manhattan and Pink Gin. It is also increasingly being used in the kitchen by professional and home chefs across the globe.
A deliciously pungent spiced nose of woody spice, herbs and fruit. The palate is full bodied with lots of cloves, cinnamon, orange, mint and zest. Hints of coffee can even be detected. The finish is long with cardamom, clove, cinnamon and orange.
