Named in homage to Jerry Thomas who it is believed wrongly specified Bogart’s Bitters, rather than Boker’s Bitters, in his 1862 The Bar-Tender’s Guide, these Bitter Truth Bitters are replicas of the historic Boker’s Bitters originally created by Johann Gottlieb Böker in 1828.

Review and Tasting

Appearance

Clear, deep chocolate brown.

Overall

Complex and bitter. Liquorice stands out with dark cacao, coffee and spice – particularly clove. Importantly, this would appear the closest we are ever going to get to the legendary Bogart’s/Boker’s Bitters that Jerry Thomas specified in his recipes back in the early 1860s.
