Handmade liquorice bitters.
A sweet woody earthy flavour with a touch of anise and fennel. Slight barky notes with a bittersweet finish. Initially created for Ago Perrone for use in cocktails using the newly reformulated Galliano L’Authentico.
Bob’s Bitters began when Bob was approached by Guiliano Morandin of The Dorchester Bar to create a range of bitters for the new launch menu after the bar had been refurbished. His idea was to create “The Gin Experience” serving gin with a selection of bespoke bitters. Bob took the idea further, making single flavoured bitters with the botanicals used in the flavour profile of gin, e.g. cardamon, ginger, liquorice, etc.
The thought behind the single flavour bitters was basically from a culinary perspective rather than following the traditional bitter route blending numerous botanical flavours. They have been very well received within the bar industry with several top mixologists going on to win international competitions incorporating Bob’s Bitters in their cocktails.
Simon Difford summed it up well when he said “Bob’s Bitters allows you to add a bittering note appropriate to a particular flavour within a cocktail...”
