Angostura Aromatic Bitters - 10cl
From medicinal tonic to one of the most famous cocktail ingredients.
The Angostura Aromatic Bitters are one of the most famous ingredients for cocktails around the world today. They give one or the other drink its distinctive aroma. They are available in ten centiliter format.
There was actually another original idea behind these Angostura Bitters. At the beginning of the 19th century a German doctor named Johann Gottlieb Benjamin Siegert lived in Venezuela, who did research for a long time. The freedom fighter Simón Bolívar asked the doctor to develop an herbal tonic for himself and his comrades so that one could fight the tropical diseases. For a long time the medic worked in a military hospital as a general staff doctor in Guyana. He also opened a hospital in the city of Angostura, which is now called Ciudad Bolívar. There Simón Bolívar took the tonic with his comrades, which made everyone feel better.
The Angostura Aromatic Bitters consist of a combination of cinnamon, gentian root, bitter orange, cardamom, cinchona bark and bitter orange. The recipes for the world-famous drinks, such as the Singapore Sling, Manhattan or Old Fashiones, include exactly these Angostura Bitters.
