The intention of Bar 40 is to provide complimentary bitters based on the tongue and how we taste flavours. In the past, they’ve found cocktail bitters to be rather drastic, often taking attention away from the the rest of the cocktail. Bar chefs like themselves are faced with the challenge of choosing bitters that hopefully fits the cocktail creation. However, the people at Bar40 Bitters address this by providing complimentary bitters based on the five gustatory taste receptors. Each flavour includes the compulsory bitter component and is paired with either sweet, sour, salty or umami (savoury) flavour profiles. This empowers the bar chef or cocktail creator to chose the specific taste profile of their liking for their personalized cocktail creations.
How they do things at Bar 40 Bitters is based on precision, creativity and iteration. They strive for a high level of quality and complexity with their bitters. They hand craft small batches from organic fruits and spices. Every batch is hand made and is slightly varied. They use neutral grain spirit to bring out the best flavours in their extractions.
