These Old Time Aromatic Bitters are bitter from the beginning to the end, as well as spicy and complex.

The complexity within this bitter is a result of the interplay between cinnamon, cardamom, licorice, clove and ginger taking place in the background, and complimented by a typical gingerbread aroma.

This bitter is best suited to compliment cask-aged spirits like whiskey, rum, brandy, and tequila.

The team Berg & Hauck have proposed a few interesting cocktails themselves that use their Old Time Aromatic Bitters, for example the Horse's Neck or the Hot Toddy (see The Bitter Truth's homepage).

The Bitter Truth

bitter_truth

The Bitter Truth, often TBT for short, was more significant in leading the rediscovery of cocktails bitter than almost any other company. It was in the summer of 2006 when Stephen Berg and Alexander Hauck decided to do something against the misery of the cocktail industry, which for them meant a lack of good bitters in the first instance.
