Bittered Sling Suius Cherry Bitters 120ml
Country of origin: Canada Alcohol content: 40% Alcohol by Volume
This extract is an example of Bing cherry brilliance, the pride of the Osoyoos summer season. With a complimentary set of ingredients, this extract is aromatic, bitter, sweet and savoury. A delicious force to be reckoned with. The name comes from “the land where the waters narrow”, Suius, or Osoyoos, BC. *This extract is rich in antioxidants, Vitamin C and potassium. Contains cholagogues, a group of bitter-tasting herbs partly responsible for bodily detoxification, mainly through the liver.
About Bittered Sling Extracts:
In 2008, Bartender Lauren Mote started making extracts and bitters for the sheer love of science and experimentation. After the creation of over 43 different kinds that expressed ingredients and their tasting notes, Mote’s extracts developed into an award-winning cocktail program, and hundreds of worthy cocktails. In 2010, Mote partnered in life and business with Chef Jonathan Chovancek, and Kale & Nori was born. Over the next two years they would tirelessly develop recipes and applications for extracts to become the bridge between culinary and the cocktail. Bittered Sling Extracts is a pipe-dream come to a tasty fruition, celebrating what beautiful ingredients can provide the palate, plate and potion.
Where did the name “Bittered Sling” come from?
“Cocktail: a stimulating liquor composed of spirits of any kind, sugar, water & bitters. It is vulgarly called a bittered sling and is supposed to be an excellent electioneering potion.”
—The Balance, Hudson Repository Published on May 13, 1806, New York.
The Suius Cherry extract can play a dynamic role in several types of cocktails. As a bitters replacement in the classic “Sazerac” cocktail, it stands up well. Its rich ruby red colour adds a touch of depth to a cocktail’s appearance. The cherries add a natural sweetness to the extract that carries rather bitter ingredients ahead on the palate, making it an ideal match for rich spirits, like whiskey (Bourbon, American, Canadian and/or Scotch), slow-aged rums and brandies.
