Hopped Grapefruit Bitters – The essence of grapefruit combined with the most noble of hops.
Bittermens recommend adding a dash to stirred cocktails made with tequila and long drinks made with gin.
When is a grapefruit not just a grapefruit? Avid beer drinkers know that certain varieties of hops, when used in high concentration, deliver a strong grapefruit flavor. They’ve decided to use the grapefruity quality of high alpha-acid hops along with grapefruit peel to help create a concoction with layer upon layer of vegetal bitterness. Designed to enhance young (silver) rums, tequilas and mezcal, the grapefruit bitters play well with most cocktails where you need a little citrus punch. Try it in a daiquiri, gimlet, or even a gin and tonic (with a splash of maraschino).

Waiting to compare25 June 2015I was given this as a gift by a friend. I've enjoyed it with Gin & soda for a less sweet taste than a regular G&T(especially awful lo-cal tonics) and also relish a drop or two in a classic Gin Martini. I have since bought a bottle to give another friend and have bought two other products that I will try when the time is right. I look forward to tasting them...
