    Overview

    In the 19th century, orange bitters were an essential bitters style, playing a key role in many classic cocktails. After Prohibition, they were hard to come by--that is until the craft cocktail renaissance of the early aughts.

    Now, there is a glut of orange bitters on the market, but Fee Brothers West Indian Orange Bitters was the granddaddy of them all. It's made from the skins of oranges grown in the West Indies and adds a fruit-forward, bitter bite to cocktails, helping to round out their flavors.

    Many drink recipes call for orange bitters but one of the best applications has to be a gin or vodka martini made with good, dry vermouth. Try a few dashes in your next 50/50 to experience the difference a little bitters can make.

    In business since 1863, Fee Brothers has been a trusted cocktail ingredient manufacturer for well over a century. Like all Fee Brothers bitters, West Indian Orange come packaged in a paper-wrapped glass bottle with a screw-top cap and dasher-style insert for easy, controlled dispensing.

    Features
    • Made in the style of 19th century orange bitters from the skins of oranges, spices, and gentian root
    • Essential to pre-Prohibition cocktails like the bijou and classic gin martini
    • Rounds out the flavor profiles of drinks
    • Concentrated flavor intended for use in small amounts
    • Made in Rochester, NY
    • Packaged in paper-wrapped glass bottle with dasher-style top

    Bold Orange with hints of complexity
    I've tried the "big 3" brands of Orange Bitters and settled on this one as the best all-rounder. Angostura orange bitters is spicier, but not as much Orange. Regan's No. 6 is more like Orange Crush with few spice notes. Regan's I turn to for G&T if there is no fresh fruit available (camping, etc.). Fee Brothers is a great addition to a G&T with wedge of lime to give it complexity and take it to the next level.

    I needed the product. Kegworks had it less expensively than other vendors so I bought it.

    Can this substitute for orange rind in Negroni?
    A shopper on Dec 1, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: As with any cocktail, it is a matter of personal preference. Using an acceptable two shakes of the small bottle you will notice an "orange peel" flavor but it will not be a substitute for the real orange peel and juice flavor which accompanies the half-slice garnish.
    When did they start in business ?
    A shopper on Oct 23, 2016
    BEST ANSWER: Fee Brothers or Keg Works? Fee Brothers has been around a LONG time. Founded March 5, 1864.
