Amargo Chuncho Bitters - Cocktail Bitters - 40% - 75ml
Its deep dark color already hints at the quality before the beautiful fragrance of this Peruvian bitter hits the nose.
It is an absolutely exceptional aromatic bitter that would compliment many cocktails; not just the Pisco Sour, the national drink of Peru and Chile.
The Amargo Chuncho bitters are especially befitting to experiment and offer an exotic and somewhat less bitter alternative to the bitters from Angostura & Co.

- The Verte de Fougerolles is now known under the name Enigma Verte. Though the recipe has not changed, the label has, it now displays an Art-Nouveau design, in the vein of 1900 absinthe posters. The Enigma is still the fine wine alcohol-based absinthe that worldwide absintheurs have praised since 2003 under the name Verte de Fougerolles, no change there, the name Enigma has been adopted in 2010 simply because of the issues for non-French speakers to say the name “Fougerolles”.
