Bob's pastry chef experience leads him to take a culinary perspective on bitters with most of his products being based on a single flavour rather than following the traditional bitters route of blending numerous botanical flavours. Thus Bob's bitters allow you to add a bittering note appropriate to a particular flavour within a cocktail such as cardamom, lavender, coriander and now chocolate. Bob has also been working on recreating lost bitters such as Bokers bitters – watch this space.
Review and Tasting
Sampled before 1st May 2011
Strong cacao aroma with hints of vanilla and espresso coffee.
Naturally is on the bitter side but not astringently so. The flavour is wonderfully dark cacao chocolate with barky bittering notes.
Barky bitter finish.
