This bottle of bitters perfectly captures the essence of smoky barbecue dry rub. Try some in your next Manhattan!

    Overview

    The flavor certainly isn’t conventional as far as cocktail bitters go, but that's why we like it!

    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.

    As crazy as it might sound, this fiery red bottle contains some of the best bitters we’ve ever had. The smoky flavor of succulent barbecue works surprisingly well in a cocktail glass – especially when added to a Manhattan.

    Made in Sante Fe, New Mexico, with neutral grain spirits, chipotle peppers, mustard seed, orange peel, coffee beans, black pepper, allspice, thyme, cumin, bay leaf, and oregano, The Bitter End Memphis Barbecue Cocktail Bitters really do taste like the sauce at your favorite rib joint. Naturally, they go particularly well with bourbon and other aged spirits.

    They are also handmade using only premium, natural ingredients from trusted purveyors, and come in a glass dropper-style bottle for easy, controlled dispensing.

    Great BBQ flavor. Strong enough that just a few drops usually does the trick.

    I tried these in a scotch cocktail made at Tasty N Alder in Portland and have been hooked ever since. They add a nice "zing" to the traditional Manhattan as well!

    I had the bitters in a High Noon cocktail at L'Berge Hotel in Del Mar California and loved what it added to the flavor of the cocktail.

    I LOVE aromatic bitters and have been wanting to try BBQ flavor. This is a gift for my boyfriend who used to live in Memphis! I'm sure they'll be great!
