Gentian is an ingredient traditionally used as a bittering agent in many cocktail bitters, and cocktail recipes.
These Single-Varietal bitters are made using only three ingredients; the spirit (Grain vodka) and Gentian Bark with natural bittering agents.
Use (very) sparingly wherever a touch of astringency or bitterness is called for. Be warned, a little goes a (very) long way.
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.
