Bittermens® Burlesque Bitters0 out of 5(0)
A spicy little tart that is sure to tantalize your taste buds. This menage of hibiscus, açai berry and long pepper is sweet, spicy and a bit of a tart. She loves performing for an international crowd, flirting with Italian amari, Mexican tequila, British gin and Caribbean rum. A perfect companion for drinks served where jazz is played and garters are de rigueur.
The Burlesque Bitters are a completely new concept for us. For the first time, we’re playing with both florals and berries – which creates a fragrant aroma and a tart sourness that plays well with a variety of spirits. Try it in a Genever Old Fashioned, a Pisco Sour or a Negroni.
Primary Flavors: Hibiscus flowers and sour berries with a hint of peppery spiceSKU: BFT21-NV00146-XX
Bittermens® Orchard Street Celery Shrub0 out of 5(0)
Though we love pickles here at Bittermens Central, we never really understood the allure of the pickleback. We like our pickles and we like our hooch. Hell, some of us have been known to have a pickled egg or two while drinking – and pickles and beer are a great combination. Just keep the pickles on the plate and the booze in the glass.
Yet, for as much as we may not understand the pickleback, during colonial times, shrubs were extremely common – vinegar-based refreshers, many times combined with alcohol or allowed to ferment so they had a bit of a kick. Maybe we’re just trying to find a way back to our cocktail roots?
Talking about roots, for those of you whose families emigrated from Eastern Europe to New York in the late 1800s or early 1900s, your ancestors probably spent some time in the immigrant tenements in the Lower East Side. Though most of the old world has been replaced by people selling cheap accessories, there is (until recently, unfortunately) Guss’ Pickles, a pickle purveyor since 1910 and Russ and Daughters – one of the last appetizing shops, who recently started to make a really tasty beet shrub.
Thinking about the Lower East Side, one of the classic flavors during the tenement era was Dr. Brown’s Cel-Ray Soda, a celery soda so popular during the ’30s, it was nicknamed the Jewish Champagne. Though the only flavor that is declared is celery seed, we always got a sense that there was a bit of ginger and apple in there somewhere.
Wrapping all of this history together, we decided to take all of these ideas and run with them. We took an idea of a brine, a shrub and a classic soda and decided to dedicate it to Orchard Street, home of the Lower East Side Tenement Museum. Funny that something that we made to honor the Eastern European immigrant experience works so damned well with Scandinavian Aquavit!SKU: BFT24-NV00146-XX
Bittermens® Hopped Grapefruit Bitters0 out of 5(0)
The essence of grapefruit combined with the most noble of hops. We recommend adding a dash to stirred cocktails made with tequila and long drinks made with gin.When is a grapefruit not just a grapefruit?
Avid beer drinkers know that certain varieties of hops, when used in high concentration, deliver a strong grapefruit flavor. We’ve decided to use the grapefruity 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).
Primary Flavors: Grapefruit, HopsSKU: BFT22-NV00146-XX
La Maison Fontaine® Blanche0 out of 5(0)
La Maison Fontaine® Blanche, the Worlds most awarded blanche absinthe, is masterfully refined using an array of natural herbs including our world-renowned Pontarlier-grown Grande Absinthe.
Sweet and refreshing taste characterised by rich floral notes with hints of lemon and mint, Fontaine Blanche is a classic absinthe with a contemporary twist.
Re-discover a Lost Art. Connoisseurs believe that the perfect serve is to drip 3 measures of chilled water from an absinthe fountain over 1 measure of Fontaine Blanche. This creates a stimulating, refreshing drink with a silky white louche. Some prefer a more intense flavour and sip it neat or pour it over ice.
Fontaine Blanche is also a wonderfully versatile spirit that can be mixed into an array of sublime cocktails. We call this The Art of Imagination.SKU: LMF01-NV00700-XX
