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.
The secret formula of Angostura Aromatic bitters was developed in 1824 by Dr. J.G.B. Siegert, the surgeon general in Simon Bolivar’s army in Angostura, Venezuela. He used his aromatic bitters as a medical elixir to improve appetite and digestive well-being of his soldiers. In time, the bitters were adopted by the 19th century American bartending community to add complexity to cocktails. Angostura is still produced today using the same bitters recipe, and is THE must-have cocktail ingredient at any bar.
Angostura Orange Bitters boasts a floral, citrus-forward aroma and tastes clearly of sweet blood oranges with spicy notes of cardamom and coriander that give way to a dry, bitter orange finish.
