Bitter(s) Review: Coster’s Prescription Burnt Citrus Bitters

Posted by Arctic Wolf on May 9, 2019

Coster’s Prescription Burnt Citrus Bitters are produced by Mark Coster, a Toronto-based wine and spirits importer. I contacted Mark and learned that passion for making bitters began about a decade ago when he would make bitters as gifts for his friends in the spirits trade. According to Coster, he began with Burnt Orange Bitters which were they were apparently a big hit with those friends. His Burnt Orange Bitters would evolve into what is sold today as Coster’s Prescription Burnt Citrus Bitters as in addition to orange, Coster likes to use grapefruit and lemon in the mix as well.

Mark makes all his bitters by himself with no overarching parent company backing his brands. He bottles and labels the bitters by hand and is busy working on a website for his Prescription Bitters. Currently The Crafty Bartender is his chosen distribution outlet.

Here is a link to my latest Bitter Review:

Review: Coster’s Prescription Burnt Citrus Bitters

“… When I placed a drop of the bitters onto my tongue, I found I could taste both orange and orange peel zest, as well as hints of grapefruit and grapefruit zest. There is also a light underlying spiciness of cinnamon. (Bergamot and Tangerine both have orange-like flavours and are probably part of that orange citrus flavour profile as well.) …”

Please enjoy my review which includes a few cocktail suggestions.
