The Bitter Truth Creole Bitters 200ml
Creole equals flavorful, and these bitters are as unique as the culture it encapsulates. These bitters smell like a kitchen in the French Quarter.
The Bitter Truth Creole Bitters are reminiscent of a style of bitters dating back to an era before cocktails even existed. Back then, bitters were made by doctors and apothecaries, primarily for the use in liquid tonics and then eventually as an ingredient in alcoholic beverages.
The Bitter Truth Creole Bitters reflect the Creole way of life with all its beautiful complexity and spiciness. With the first taste, cayenne and pink peppercorns emerge, supported by anise, big red cinnamon, dusky caraway, and fennel seed. Fruit scents of dried apricots, cherries, and cranberries are mingling with the strong flavors of anise, smoked paprika, and hints of smoldering pine wood.
The vintage metallic label is hiding fiery anise, cherry red-colored liquid. Try it in your favorite Manhattan, Old Fashioned, French 75, or for that matter, any drink that could do with perking up. Put on a brass band march and get your feet moving!
Tasting Notes: Bitter, sweet, and spicy. According to the traditional Creole style, fruity and floral aromas unite with the flavors of anise, caraway, and fennel.
