Lovely stuff and very medicinal. If you have an upset tummy or the runes or even intestinal worms this product is reputed to be able to treat it thanks to the gentian root it contains. In addition to using it in cocktails (famously the old fashioned but it works great in drinks that feature citrus flavours; try, for example, some grapefruit juice, jack daniels and a few dashes of angostura) I also like a shot with a can of soda served over ice. A sublime, fragrant and refreshing drink on a hot summer's day.
It's normally quite expensive in supermarkets so finding it at a reduced price on Amazon is very useful.
If you use it in cocktails rather than drinking it neat as I do a bottle should last you quite some time.
Just the most amazing clovey-orangery spicy bitterness that is utterly sublime when used sparingly in a good gin. Where have you been all my life?! I will always have a bottle of this in the fridge from now on. A good dash of this in the glass mixed with a half measure of good vermouth and topped up with gin makes a wonderful Martini. Alternatively a dash of Angostura in the base of a martini glass and fill the glass with the gin of your choice and you have the classic pink gin....simple, utterly delicious and very refined! A complex multi layered taste that also gives great colour....I totally love this stuff! Awesome!
I bought this so that I could mix my own "Old Fashioned" cocktails and haven't been disappointed, I'm yet to try it as some others have suggested as a digestif but I can imagine it'd work as it has those really deep, natural flavours and feel to it. Should last for ages as not a lot's needed to add to a drink, I'd recommend that everyone should add a bottle of this to their drinks cabinet
I don't drink alcohol, so I don't know about the use in cocktails; but this piece of aroma works great in Pies and desserts. Two dashes in every chess or fruit pie. And if you have the orange bitters, use them in lemon/lime/orange flavored pies, and even chocolate/nutella chess pie. Amazing.
Love making Lemon/Lime Bitters with this. Ordered it as I struggled to find in the shops. Only thing was how it was packaged meant the label was creased & bent so doesn't look that great on my drinks cabinet.
