A complex bitters for citrus-heavy drinks
The Bitter Truth Grapefruit Bitters do not fail in representing this oversized but under-used citrus fruit. With an instantaneous boost of the zingy breakfast fruit on the first sniff, you`ll get both the bitter oils but also the classic sharp tang on the tongue, followed by complex vegetal tones and a dry hop finish.
The Bitter Truth Grapefruit Bitters is reminding of the summers outdoors. Delicate to the nose, these bitters can stand up to aggressive drinks. Grapefruit meets with hops to create a fresh, bright citrus note and makes for a nice addition in fizzy and fruity drinks.
These grapefruit bitters are best friends to gin, vodka, Blanco tequila, and light rum and are a wonderful ingredient for drinks that may otherwise taste excessively sweet. Give a modern twist to a classic Gin & Tonic, add a few dashes to a Daiquiri or Margarita or add a new layer of complexity to cocktails that traditionally didn’t include bitters.

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!
