Barrel Aged Bitters
There’s something about barrel aging that brings out the best in liquids. Our Barrel Aged Bitters are no different. We use the same recipe as our Old Fashioned Aromatic Bitters but make it in a well-seasoned whiskey barrel. The result is a rich, smooth bitters perfect for spirit-forward drinks like a Manhattan.
You’ll taste a lot of vanilla flavor from the oak balanced nicely by a hint of smoke from the charred barrels. These bitters are sure to be a hit with bourbon and scotch lovers.
Goes best with bourbon, whiskey, and aged rum. You can also use in any recipe that calls for aromatic bitters and would benefit from a rich, slightly smoky bitters.
