Cocktail Kingdom Wormwood Cocktail Bitters - 5 oz

Click to View Larger



Cocktail Kingdom revives a historical bitters style with this bracing formulation featuring the unmistakable bite of wormwood.


    This unique bitters formula from Cocktail Kingdom was inspired by a vintage style of bitters that appeared on the market soon after the prohibition of absinthe in 1912.

    Cocktail bitters are spirits infused with flavors, typically from plants, fruits, or spices. They date as far back as the early 1800's, originally used to assist with digestion and cure stomach aches. Infusing your cocktail recipes with just a few drops of bitters will give them an additional level of flavor depth. Many bitters are also renowned for their ability to cure hangovers.

    Wormwood is an essential component of absinthe, so wormwood bitters like these were added to anise liqueurs to approximate the flavor of absinthe without risking arrest.

    These days, absinthe is perfectly legal so mimicry isn't necessary. But that doesn't mean wormwood bitters are without purpose. On the contrary, their bracingly bitter profile can be used to enhance light and dark spirits, and temper the sweetness in syrupy liqueur-heavy drinks.

    • Handcrafted and bottled by Berkshire Mountain Distillers, Inc.
    • Crafted after a historical style of bitters that appeared after the outlawing of absinthe
    • A few drops of wormwood bitters added to anise liqueurs will approximate absinthe
    • Bracingly bitter and an excellent accompaniment to light and dark spirits
    • Use in liqueur-heavy drinks to tone down sweetness and introduce complexity

    Perfectly Bitter!
    I love CK's Wormwood Bitters. It's the ideal addition to your Negroni if you need more bitters to offset the sweet Campari.
