Approximate the taste of pre-Prohibition cocktails with Fee Brothers Cardamom Cocktail Bitters.
Cocktail bitters are spirits infused with flavors, typically from plants, fruits, or spices. They date as far back as the early 1800's, originally used to assist with digestion and cure stomach aches. Infusing your cocktail recipes with just a few drops of bitters will give them an additional level of flavor depth. Many bitters are also renowned for their ability to cure hangovers.
Fee Brothers, located in Rochester, NY, is a fourth-generation family-owned business that began as a small saloon/delicatessen back in 1863. Today, the product list includes almost 100 drink and cocktail mix products, shipped to distributors and establishments across six continents.
This cardamom bitters recipe was inspired by classic Boker's, a brand and style of cocktail bitters popular in the 19th century that's essential to many vintage recipes. In the spirit of Boker's, Fee Brothers Cardamom tastes predominately of its namesake spice, which lends notes of lemon, flowers, and smoke to the bitters' flavor profile.
Like all Fee Brothers bitters, this product comes packaged in a paper-wrapped glass bottle with a screw-top cap and dasher insert for easy, measured dispensing of a dash of bitters (or more) to any glass.
Each 5 ounce bottle of bitters contains approximately 150 dashes. The amount of liquid in one dash varies depending on the amount of bitters left in the bottle. The less remaining in the bottle, the bigger your dash gets.
