The Bitter Truth Creole Bitters recall a style of bitters that goes back to a time when cocktails did not even exist. In those days, doctors and pharmacists sold herbal and spice solutions as medicine and these were later used in alcoholic drinks. The Bitter Truth Creole Bitters revives the aromas of the original New Orleans Cocktail Bitters and reflects the Creole way of life with its wonderful complexity and spiciness. Creole means "intense & rich aromas" and these bitters are as unique as the culture whose name they bear.Tasting notes:With fruity notes of dried apricots, cherries and cranberries that combine with strong tones of aniseed, smoked peppers and roasted pine wood, these bitters exude the smell of New Orleans "French Quarter" cuisine. Initially defined by notes of cayenne and pink peppercorns, these tones are supported by aniseed, cumin, cinnamon and fennel. The decorative, metallic red label encloses a complex red liquid flavoured with spices such as aniseed and caraway, which gives strength and expressiveness to classic and modern cocktails. Excellent in a Manhattan or Brandy cocktail.
