Cocoa, Cacao, Xocolatl, Chucklit - call it what you will…
These Single-Varietal bitters are made using only two ingredients; the spirit (Grain Vodka), cocoa and natural bittering agents.
Cocoa adds a tremendous complexity to any cocktail which has rum as a main ingredient. As in a well-made chilli-con-carne, cocoa contributes depth of flavour, rather than overt sweetness.
About Bitter Bastards:
Bitter Bastards represents a whole new approach with a huge range of innovatively produced, single-botanical cocktail bitters. Instead of filtration (where oils can be lost) and flocculation (where chemical agents are added) they use a centrifuge, separating the particulate to clarify the bitters without loss of flavour.
Standardisation, in terms of flavour intensity and bitterness, has also been brought in across the range, with the amount of natural bittering agent added (gentian root is used) depending on the bitterness of the individual botanical. All this should be music to the ears of bartenders and cocktail enthusiasts alike!
Please note, Master of Malt has re-branded to Bitter Bastards. Your order may include items with the original Master of Malt branding or the new Bitter Bastards branding.
