Product of: United States
Abbot’s is a brand of aromatic/medicinal bitters popular in the 1920s and produced up until the mid-1950s. It has been resurrected with a reproduction of the label and what is thought to be a close recreation of the liquid by friends Peter Schaf and John Troia and their Tempus Fugit Spirits Company.

Clear, orange amber.
Herbal, spicy and medicinal with freshly sawn light wood, cinnamon and vanilla.
Bitter bark, cinnamon and dry spicy oak with a balancing sweetness and strong saffron flavours.
Very long bitter spice with lingering herbal complexity. Tested against Angostura Bitters in a Sweet Manhattan the difference is most noticeable on the finish, appearing to be much extended, heightening the whiskey notes.
