A traditional marmalade scent sets off act one of the Bitter Truth Orange Bitters on the nose. This is followed by a cacophony of clove, cinnamon and nutmeg. On first taste, cardamom and caraway make an entrance and the finishing number is true orange peel oil. This ingredient supports the cast of a traditional martini but duets well with rums, whiskies and tequilas as well.
The Bitter Truth Orange Bitters are a combination of bitter orange peel and several herbs and spices that are macerated in alcohol. The first orange bitters were released in the 1880s, a time when many classic cocktails such as the Martinez and Manhattan were created. Today they are still essential for the preparation of a Classic Martini Cocktail. The Bitter Truth Orange Bitters can be combined with all kinds of spirits such as Whisk(e)y, Rum, Vodka and Gin.
The fruity sweetness at the beginning is quickly followed by a very bitter taste. The aroma of bitter orange peel is in the foreground, completed by spicy flavors of cardamom, caraway and nutmeg.
