Peychaud’s Aromatic Cocktail Bitters
The classic New Orleans bitters, Peychaud’s is one of three essential bitters to have behind your bar (Angostura and Regan Orange are the others). Formulated in 1838 as a medicinal tonic, Peychaud’s aromatic bitters quickly became a favorite of 19th century bartenders. Today, it is one of only two bitters brands to survive Prohibition unscathed.
Peychaud’s are lumped in the same category as Angostura aromatic bitters but boast a telltale bright red color and slightly sweeter flavor profile with loads of warm Christmas spices.SKU: BFT10-NV00148-XX
Regan’s Orange Bitters No.6
Regan based his recipe on one from Charles Baker’s 1930s cocktail guide The Gentleman’s Companion, and it took a trip to a witches’-supply store in New York’s Greenwich Village, endless iterations, and a partnership with The Sazerac Company of New Orleans before he landed on the right formula.
This old fashioned orange bitters recipe is a heady combination of orange zest, cardamom, cinchona, caraway, coriander, cinnamon, clove, gentian, and quassia that complement a wide range of spirits and liqueurs. Try a few dashes in your next Old Fashioned, Manhattan, or any other classic cocktail to help round out its ragged edges and add delightful complexity.SKU: BFT11-NV00148-XX
