A modern style of aromatic bitters
Tall, dark and yes, somewhat handsome, most definitely rich and original: New bitters for a new era of cocktails!

The Bitter Truth Chocolate Bitters blur the lines between old world bitters and new world flavors. Deep chocolate notes are supported by classic bitter flavors and accented with a hint of spice. Cocoa butter and dark chocolate seduce the nose. Hints of vanilla, cinnamon, and bitter tones of gentian and wormwood are elicited on the palate.

The Bitter Truth Chocolate Bitters play exceptionally well with sweet vermouths and all kinds of aged spirits like whiskey, rum, tequila, and brandy. Add a dash to a Manhattan or Negroni to start exploring its complex flavor or use in a Tequila Old Fashioned to bring forward the spirit’s vegetal attributes.

In the brave new world of cocktails, bitters have had their resurrection, and perhaps to a few, it may have felt like a long time coming. In fact, it is a miracle we have them at all.

At one point, and for a long time, bitters were out of fashion. No longer outrageous, they simply gave way to simpler, faster, more streamlined tastes. Brands and flavors withered and died. Something wonderful was lost then, and it took years to regain enough perspective to see that. But possibly the most gratifying story is that of devotees-turned-professionals, Stephan Berg and Alexander Hauck founding The Bitter Truth.

They, from their personal interests, made bitters something of their lives’ work and galvanized the bitters movement with a series of bitters that famously included the commercial attempt to revive an extinct brand, Boker’s (Bogart`s). For all they have done, for all they will do, Gentlemen here’s to you!
