The Bitter Truth - Orange Bitters add structure, complexity and fruitiness to classic and modern mixed drinks.
The first orange bitters were released in the 1880s as a supplement for the famous stomach bitters. Early bartenders added bitters to their cocktails to improve the taste of these mixed drinks. After prohibition almost all bitters had vanished from the market but were rediscovered atthe end of the 20th century with modern interpretations of classic style bitters and new and innovative flavours.
About The Bitter Truth:
The Bitter Truth started producing cocktail bitters in 2006. The Bitter Truth sticks to the »classic method« of producing bitters by macerating roots, seeds, barks, fruits, herbs and plants in an alcohol base. All ingredients are 100 % natural outside of a small amount of caramel to achieve a beautiful rich color and guarantee the best quality. The design of the bitters bottle refers to old medicine bottles from the 19th century. The label was designed with old fashioned floral ornaments and printed on plastic foil to withstand daily demands.
The aroma of bitter orange peel followed by spicy flavors of cardamom, caraway and nutmeg make the Orange Bitters essential for the preparation of a classic Dry Martini cocktail. Additionally they can also be combined with all kinds of clear and aged spirits as well as liqueurs.
