This quintessential aromatic bitters recipe, made from 40 secret spices, now comes in an economical 16 ounce bottle.


    Overview

    With their large white paper labels and bright yellow caps, Angostura Bitters are a fixture at bars the world over. And now you can get more bite for your bitters buck with Angostura in a larger-than-standard 16-ounce bottle.

    Cocktail bitters are spirits infused with flavors, typically from plants, fruits, or spices. They date as far back as the early 1800's, originally used to assist with digestion and cure stomach aches. Infusing your cocktail recipes with just a few drops of bitters will give them an additional level of flavor depth. Many bitters are also renowned for their ability to cure hangovers.

    Like all bottlings of Angostura's classic formula, this economy size version is made from a secret blend of more than 40 spices and botanicals. The recipe was developed in 1824 as a medical elixir by D. J.G.B. Siebert, who was serving as surgeon general of Simón Bolívar's army in Angostura, Venezuela. The bitters were quickly adopted by the burgeoning American bartending community, and the rest, as they say, is history.

    In 1875, production of Angostura moved to Trinidad, where they are still produced according to the same storied recipe. As the quintessential aromatic bitters, Angostura adds a layer of complexity, intensifies the flavor of other ingredients, and counteracts acidity and alcohol heat in cocktails.

    A few dashes of Angostura bitters are required in classic Old Fashioneds, Manhattans, and Mai Tais, making a bottle of Angostura a must-have ingredient at your home or commercial bar. Add a dash of bitters (or two) to everything from cocktails to haute cuisine and enjoy the unique savoriness that is unmistakably Angostura!

    Note: Angostura bitters are also available in 4 oz and 6.76 oz bottles.

    I love a well made Manhattan and, to my palate, Angostura bitters is essential to achieve the level of perfection I require. I also use bitters in cooking for additional flavor notes; once again, Angostura provides the ' je ne sais quoi ' that can take a recipe to a whole new level of perfection.

    To my educated palate, Angostura makes the finest aromatic bitters on the market. The best Manhattans require the finest ingredients. Need I say more?

    We have been using this product for many years. Yes, it is essential in the making of a perfect Manhattan cocktail. But it is also standard fare for those who occasionally need to settle an upset stomach. I personally also enjoy the taste of a few drops in a glass of ginger ale.
