Bitter Truth

by loren • June 9

Finally someone has tackled the nagging problem of how to get your bitters though airport security without checking a bag. A British company; Bitter Truth has introduced a travel sized set of bitters for the jet set cocktail enthusiast.

There has been a resurgence of interest in pre-prohibition style cocktails lately. Along with their nostalgic appeal I think people are attracted to the craft and care that goes into making a classic cocktail. These drinks are custom made using old techniques and tools. An expert bartender will chip and shave ice, shake and stir a custom drink for you. Bitters are a staple in these refashioned cocktails and we have seen more brands come out recently that are mixing up unexpected flavors like Xocolatl Mole, gingerbread, and Hellfire Habanero Shrub!
