Historic Bogart’s Bitters Return To The UK With The Bitter Truth – Love Drinks

Historic Bogart’s Bitters Return To The UK With The Bitter Truth

Apr 9th, 2018

10 years in the making and well worth the wait, The Bitter Truth Company have succeeded in recreating the original Bogart’s Bitters recipe used by “the father of American bartending” Jerry Thomas.

Fortunate enough to procure an original bottle that not only contained the liquid but also had a surprisingly well-intact label, The Bitter Truth could faithfully recreate the recipe and every nuance of the bespoke packaging. Bottled in the iconic “Lady Leg” bottle made from especially commissioned glass, each bottle comes individually boxed with a history and recipe booklet containing some of Jerry Thomas’ original cocktails.

Bogart’s Bitters amalgamate a beautiful mix of dark spice, chocolatey coffee and European herbs. Dark brown in colour, it revives the taste of bartending’s early years when aromatic bitters were the defining ingredient for a refined alcoholic refreshment – the cocktail.

Jamie Boudreau of “Canon: Whiskey and Bitters Emporium”, Seattle says: “The formula has been analysed, interpreted and changes in flavour profile, due to age, were subtracted and the liquid formulated in the way it authentically resembles Jerry Thomas’ favourite bitters of more than a century ago.”

The Bitter Truth Bogart’s Bitters have an ABV of 42.1% and come in 35cl bottles.
