BITTERMENS Variety Pack (4 x 2 oz)
While living in San Francisco in early 2007, Avery and Janet Glasser used high proof spirit and a variety of herbs, peels and spices to create an extract of a traditional Mexican cooking sauce. This extract became the prototype recipe for the Xocolatl Mole Bitters. Bittermens now offers a full line of flavorful bitters that will add a dash of creativity to your cocktails and concoctions. 5 oz Bottles with dropper style top.
Variety Pack (4 x 2 oz)
A unique assortment of Bittermens' best-selling bitters in a 2oz size. Includes: 2oz Elemakule Tiki, 2oz Hopped Grapefruit, 2oz Xocolatl Mole, 2oz Hellfire. Comes with one recipe card per flavor.
A heady blend of cacao, cinnamon & spice inspired by the classic Mole sauces of Mexico, this bitter was originally designed to pair with aged tequila, but it works beautifully with aged rum, bourbon and rye as well. Add a dash to libations made with dark rum, aged tequila and any other dark spirits you may encounter.
A taste of the islands. This formulation takes into account the contributions from both the Eastern (Polynesia) and Western (Caribbean) schools of tropical cocktails. Primary Flavors: Cinnamon and Allspice with a strong cast of supporting spice flavors.
Shrubs are classically refreshing fruit and vinegar-based syrups that were sweetened and diluted to make a beverage since revolutionary times. Bittermens decided to make a hot pepper shrub, fortified it with alcohol (to better extract the flavors from the spices) and made it much more concentrated, so you only need to use drops instead of ounces to get the desired effect… which, in this case, is a nice amount of heat.
The essence of grapefruit combined with the most noble of hops. Avid beer drinkers know that certain varieties of hops, when used in high concentration, deliver a strong grapefruit flavor. Bittermens uses the grapefruit-y quality of Pacific Northwest hops along with grapefruit peel to help create a concoction with layer upon layer of vegetal bitterness. Designed to enhance young (silver) rums, tequilas and mezcal, the Hopped Grapefruit bitters play well with most cocktails where you need a little citrus punch. Try it in a daiquiri, gimlet, or even a gin and tonic (with a splash of maraschino).
