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!
Ted Haigh – Cocktail Historian
CELERY BITTERS: Very complex and exotic. The initial flavor of celery is dominant, leading into a complex palate with aromas of lemongrass, orange peel, and ginger.
OLD TIME AROMATIC BITTERS: CBitter and tangy to the taste. Reminiscent of cinnamon, cardamom, anise and cloves, the aroma is reminding of gingerbread.
ORANGE BITTERS: It starts with fruity sweetness, quickly followed by a bitter taste. The aroma of bitter orange peel is in the foreground, completed by spicy flavors of cardamom, caraway, and nutmeg.
CREOLE BITTERS: Bitter, sweet, and spicy. According to the traditional Creole style, fruity and floral aromas unite with the flavors of anise, caraway, and fennel.
JERRY THOMAS BITTERS: Very fruity and very bitter. Citrus and dried fruit aromas unite with the spicy and bitter flavors of cloves, Angostura bark, and cinnamon.
