I am wondering why all of a sudden I am noticing that bitters are making into the food and beverage media lately. Last year it was food trucks...this year so far, it's all about the bitters. I guess I am glad for this new resurgence as I fancy bitter over sweet any day! You may have noticed I don't post a lot about desserts and sweets? Anyway, I think the real reason is because there is a shortage in the world of angostura bitters , made solely by a company in Trinidad and Tobago, recently shut down due to the recession and some other issues. Let's hope they get that all resolved!
In August 2006, the first products from The Bitter Truth were released: an Orange Bitters and an Old Time Aromatic Bitters. Shortly following that, Lemon, Celery, Grapefruit and a Xocolatl Mole Bitters became available.
The Bitter Truth Elixier, is The Bitter Truth’s latest product, a digestive liqueur in the grand tradition of the Alps.
Don't know about you, but I am going to be sure to check out the drinks menu at my local bar and see what they are "stirring up" with bitters!
