Bitter(s) Review: Angostura Orange Bitters

Posted by Arctic Wolf on September 17, 2019

Angostura Aromatic Bitters were first produced in 1824, in the town of Angostura (now Ciudad Bolívar, Venezuela) by Dr. Johann Siegert who created his aromatic bitters as a medicinal treatment to alleviate digestive and stomach ailments. In the 1870’s the brand was moved to Trinidad, where Johann Siegert’s son, Don Carlos established the aromatic bitters as a complementary ingredient for cocktails and in food.

Angostura Orange Bitters were launched in 2007 providing an innovative new flavour of bitters for cocktail enthusiasts.

According to the company website:

Made from its own special recipe, ANGOSTURA® orange bitters is a complex blend of tropical oranges and spices. “The soul of an exceptional dry martini”; it is wonderfully versatile and pairs perfectly with vodka, gin and whisky. It also adds a depth of flavour to rum cocktails …

You may read my full review which includes a wonderful Tequila cocktail suggestion (El Hereje) by using the following link to my review page:

Review: Angostura Orange Bitters

” … When I put a small amount of the Orange Bitters on my tongue I immediately note a sharp taste of orange zest. (In fact, Angostura makes the claim that their bitters can be used as a substitute for orange zest for cooking and baking.) There is a very dry characteristic to the zesty flavour almost as if the bitters contain some sort of dry alkali spice as well as a light menthol characteristic. These are secondary impressions to be sure as orange zest dominates the bitters …”

Please enjoy my the review.

Chimo!
