These Negroni bitters are a blend of Australian oranges and lemons, mixed with the floral notes of chamomile and the richness of star anise.
These bitters are designed to add an extra layer of complexity and aromatics to the inimitable Negroni, or to be used as an orange bitters in classic cocktails.
What Are Bitters?
What spices are to a chef, bitters are to a barman. Bitters are usually used as an additive in a cocktail. They are traditionally flavoured with botanicals and spices, creating a product that is characterised by its bitter or bittersweet flavour.
The bitter flavour is the body's reaction to imbibing a toxin. Toxins existing in bitter plants such as Angelica root, gentian, chamomile, or even more common vegetables like broccoli or Brussels sprouts. They exist as a defence mechanism to ward of predators, and while they can be harmful to animals or insects, actually have health benefits for humans. Digestive, metabolic and even cancer treatment properties have been found present in these ingredients.
WHO is MR BITTERS?
Australia’s very first bitters company based in Melbourne. Created for the mutual love of bitters by a couple of bartenders and onlybitters.com, these two like-minded groups wanted to create a greater Australian presence in the bitters culture across the globe, offering unique new flavour combinations.
