Combining the same classic ingredients for nearly 200 years, Angostura bitters are a key ingredient in many famous cocktails, often paired with gin and rum to great effect. Despite the name, its flavour is not bitter at all, with the strong aromatic flavour, powerful with gentian and spices. Many cocktails simply wouldn’t be the same without a dash or two of Angostura bitters and it’s the complex herbaceous nature of the product which allows it to offer additional depth and dimension to cocktails.
Rich and creamy, The Bitter Truth Chocolate Bitters is intense with creamy cocoa butter and bitter dark chocolate. This is followed closely by aromas of decadent vanilla, cinnamon and the classic bitters flavours of gentian and wormwood. Xocolat Bitters is a modern and exciting addition to many cocktails, working especially well with aged spirits such as rum, tequilas and whiskies. Deep chocolate notes are perfectly balanced with hints of spice which you can enjoy creatively in a range of cocktails.

Laphroaig Quarter Cask was released in 2004 to much esteem. Youthful compared to other offerings it’s a highly commendable malt which still has a bold, enticing flavour despite its young age. Oily and butter rich on the nose, toffee, nuts and hickory smoke come through measuredly. The palate gives a bold hit of sweetness with fiery chilli heat coming through quickly in pursuit, medicinal freshness, chewy cereals and even a hint of cola also follow.
