Since 1889, the makers of Suze have blended gentian roots and plants to create bitters. In 2015 they applied this knowledge to develop a range of aromatic bitters. Flavoured with gentian, nutmeg and anise, Suze red Aromatic Bitters were developed with the help of French bartender, Julien Escot.
Review and Tasting

Clear, scarlet red.
Pungent gentian with well-judged nutmeg and anise. Faint lily blossom.
There’s something of a floral character with intense gentian bitterness and well rounded spice.
Anise emerges strongly.
The colour and style of these red aromatic bitters cries out for use in a Sazerac. Indeed they work well, leaving a distinct long lingering bitter gentian finish so you may want to use more sparingly than say Peychard’s.
