Bittermens Boston Bittahs Bitters (146ml)
Small batch bitters are surely making their mark on the cocktail scene, with cocktail enthusiasts and bartenders rediscovering the long lost recipes of the golden era and coming up with new signature flavours which help create the palate of the New Age Cocktail.
While living in San Francisco in early 2007, Avery and Janet Glasser used high proof spirit and a variety of herbs, peels and spices to create what would be their prototype recipe for the Xocolatl Mole Bitters and catalyst for their new venture.
The summer of 2010 marked a dramatic rebirth for Bittermens: winding down previous licensing agreements, striking new partnerships (i.e. The Bitter Truth) developing new products and most importantly, leasing a commercial kitchen. All Bittermens products are now being made by hand at their Brooklyn facility using primarily organic ingredients.
After the rousing success of their ‘Elemakule Bitters, Bittermans have produced a new bitter that celebrates both the return of summer and their return to Boston after 14 years. It’s citrus, citrus, citrus and more citrus, supported with a heavy dose of chamomile. Try it in your favorite fizz, sour or bright tropical drink. It works extremely well with pisco and scotch as well.
