The name of this bitters brand literally translates to 'old Danish' and it is something of a cult product in its native Denmark. Unusually for a 'bitters', this is a relatively modern brand, launched in 1964 to capitalise on the growth in popularity of bitter liqueurs. Read more

Review and Tasting

Sampled on 01/05/2011

Appearance

Clear, rusty brown with golden highlights.

Aroma

Cracked black pepper and sweet cinnamon and nutmeg nose with warm cloves and red berry fruit.

Taste

Aggressive bitter, dry, pine juniper palate with tannin, and much need sweet fruity flavours.

Aftertaste

Aromatic, liquorice finish with fruit compôte struggling for attention over the bitterness. We'd score this highly if presented in a bitters bottle with a dropper and aimed at being dripped into Manhattans.
