Bitter Review: Bittercube Jamaican No. 1 Bitters

Posted by Arctic Wolf on February 17, 2021

After much delay, I have finally found the time to continue with my examinations of various Bitters which have made their way into my local market. Today I will look at Bittercube Jamaican No. 1 Bitters.

Nicholas Kosevich and Ira Koplowitz come from a hospitality background. Prior to forming Bittercube they bartended and managed at the Town Talk Diner (Nicholas) in Minneapolis and The Violet Hour (Ira) in Chicago. Nicholas and Ira began producing Bittercube Bitters in 2009. Their company (based in Milwaukee, Wisconsin) started by making one gallon batches with real botanicals. Although the batch size is now 210 gallons the handmade process has stayed largely the same as they source botanicals as close to origin as possible to create densely flavored bitters. Bittercube Bitters became available commercially in July, 2010. Today the bitters are found in nearly 30 states and abroad in Canada, Italy and Australia.

Here is a link to my full review:

Review: Bittercube Jamaican No. 1 Bitters

“… I immediately noticed the heated cloves, ginger and black pepper. Pungent allspice is also at the front of the flavour with hints of cinnamon trailing a little behind. Citrus peel seems to be present, and after that the flavours seem to become indistinct …”

Please enjoy the review, and my cocktail suggestion, El Padre.
