Peychaud's Whiskey Barrel-Aged Bitters (148ml)
Originally created around 1830 by Antoine Amédée Peychaud, an apothecary from France who settled in New Orleans, Louisiana in 1795. Peychaud’s is a gentian-based bitters, comparable to Angostura bitters, but with a lighter body, sweeter taste and more floral aroma, called for specifically in many cocktails. Try this classic in a Manhattan, Old Fashioned, Whisky Sour or in the signature Sazerac Cocktail.
This twist is aged in used Sazerac Rye Whiskey Barrels for 140 days, adding spice & vanilla to the profile. Supercharge your Sazerac by substituting this version of the classic bitters in the recipe below.
