Bittermens Bitters - 4 Bold New Arrivals

Bittermens is steadfast in their devotion to creating flavor combinations that are complex and a touch esoteric - no traditional aromatics here.  We've always loved their bold and punchy flavors (mole, tiki, burlesque, and hellfire) that spice up everything from a classic old fashioned to the most exotic and intricate of tiki cocktails.

We've just added 4 more expressions with names as vivid and bright as their flavors.

Transatlantic Aromatic Bitters is Bittermens take on the new classic aromatic - a little sweet, bitter, fruity.  If Angostura and Peychauds had a baby, but didn't use any food coloring or sweetener, it'd maybe taste like this.  It has the gentian, clove, allspice, and cinnamon from Angostura, the angelica and anise from Peychauds, but also the chicory from Fernet, chamomile and dandelion from Alpine Amaro, and a hint of cherry bark and licorice from German Digestifs.

Krupnik Herbal Honey BittersIn Belarus one of the most common drinks is called Крупнік (pronounced: Krupnik), made with vodka, honey, juniper, pine and coffee or tea.  This bitter has that same flavor profile and is great for spicing up hot toddies, bee's knees, and even just your favorite teas.

Buckspice Ginger Bitters - Inspired by Northern European ginger cookies, this is bursting with fresh ginger juice and ginger spice, with a touch of sweetness.  It is a perfect match with bourbon, rum, or even as the ginger element in a mule.

Scarborough Savory Herbal Bitters is designed to work with savory drinks, especially drinks with sherry and dry vermouth. This balances parsley, sage, rosemary, thyme (Simon and Garfunkel nod), plus an extra hit of cinchona bark to lend some classic bitterness to the flavor.  Dash it in a Bloody Mary, a Gimlet, a Cobbler, a Martini, or just a vermouth spritz.
