Apothecary Nightshade Chile Chicory Bitters are bold and complex, perfect for the fall and winter. Inspired by the desert, with nods to staple ingredients in Mexican cuisine, these bitters are a wonderful combination of spicy heat, light smokey notes and a rich and earthy backbone. As they progress, savour the flavours of several types of chiles, cinnamon, chicory and other dark botanicals and spices.
These bitters are quite versatile and can add a little something extra to a variety of cocktails and spirits. They are obviously at home with agave based spirits but also play great with rye and dark rums. Try these in a Mezcal Manhattan or a rye Old Fashioned.
Aroma notes of earthy chiles, smoke, kola, cinnamon and chocolate. The taste reinforces the aromas with added notes of spice, dark fruit and a nice bitter.
