In stock and ready to ship.

Gentian root, sorghum, and sassafras form the basis of this unique bitters recipe, which is left to mature in spent bourbon barrels before bottling.


    Woodford Reserve Bourbon Barrel-Aged Sassafras & Sorghum Cocktail Bitters are a great addition to many classic and modern cocktails.

    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.

    This unique bitters formula is made from bitter gentian root, earthy sorghum, a grain native to Africa and popular in the American South, and Kentucky sassafras--the tree bark that gave old fashioned root beer is distinctive flavor. The bitters are then left to mature in premium bourbon barrels from the Woodford Reserve distillery, one of the country's oldest and smallest.

    The resultant bitters create brightness in an Old Fashioned, Manhattan, or other cocktails made with dark spirits. Add a dash of bitters to your next drink to taste the difference barrel aging can make.

    • Aged in Woodford Reserve bourbon barrels
    • Sorghum is a cereal grain also used to make a golden syrup
    • Sassafras is a tree bark once used to flavor root beer and other sodas
    • Gentian root gives this formula its bitter edge
    • Complements dark spirits like whiskey, bourbon, aged rum, and cognac
    • Use in a classic Manhattan or Old Fashioned
    • Dropper-style closure makes these bitters easy to dispense in small amounts
