The famous Trinidadian bitter makers launched this bitters in 2020, made with Trinitario cocoa grown on the islands of Trinidad & Tobago.

Like the original Angostura Aromatic Bitters and the Orange bitters launched in 2007, this third flavour in the Angostura Bitters line-up is dressed in the familiar oversized paper label but is made distinctive by its purple cap.

Review and Tasting

Sampled on 13/10/2020


Clear, deep tawny amber with bronze highlights.


Pungent nutty cocoa with ginger cake, woody herbal aromas and Christmassy spice.


Chocolate cake and ginger cake with gentle bitterness and assertive spice. The flavour turns more cacoa nib focussed as it develops.


Mildly bitter gentian finish with long lingering cacao nibs.


As cocktail bitters go Angostura Cocoa Bitters sit on the mild side of bitterness but deliver cocoa nib and herbal botanical complexity to a cocktail. Bitters made for dashing rather than dripping.
