Bittermens Burlesque 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.
Bittermens Burlesque bitters combine hibiscus, Açai berry and long pepper to create a palate of sweet, spicy and slightly tart sensations. Perfectly paired with Italian amaros, Mexican tequila, British gin and Caribbean rum. Try it in a Genever Old Fashioned, a Pisco Sour, a Negroni or the producers recommended Gold Baron cocktail.
