Certificate
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

Appearance:

Clear, deep tawny amber with bronze highlights.

Aroma:

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

Taste:

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

Aftertaste:

Mildly bitter gentian finish with long lingering cacao nibs.

Overall:

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.
