The key ingredient in Absinthe, Wormwood is perhaps one of the most controversial ingredients of all time.
These Single-Varietal bitters are made using only two ingredients; the spirit (High-proof 8 year old Bourbon), Dried Wormwood and natural bittering agents.
Fantastic to add an extra 'zip' to cocktails made using Absinthe or Pastis, these bitters are very astringent and should be used only in small quantity.
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.
