ORIGIN of Bitters

Bitters are made up of a concentrated mix of alcohol, sour, or bitter botanical ingredients.

They can come from such aromatic fixings as: bark, roots, fruit, orange peel, and much more.
These botanicals are infused into a flavorless alcohol base to create a potent potion.
In many ways, bitters are like the salt of cooking.
Just a few drops enhance the whole palate experience.
Though there are a wide variety of bitters, they can be lumped into three categories: aromatic (the most popular), medicinal, and herbal.
Herbal bitters can be rich in tarragon, thyme, or mint and are often used to nourish digestive health.
