Dr. Adam Elmegirab's Dandelion & Burdock Bitters 100ml
Country of origin: Scotland Alcohol content: 42% Alcohol by Volume
The second bottling to join the Dr. Adam’s Bitters portfolio in the winter of 2009, Dandelion & Burdock Bitters sought to highlight the earthy and herbal notes offered up by the roots they’re named after, and create an amaro-like bitters unseen before. Originally a type of light mead that dates back to the 1300s, Dandelion & Burdock Bitters was thought to have been created by the Italian priest Saint Thomas Aquinas, and were famed for their alleged medicinal properties; similar to the many cocktail bitters that followed in later years. Taking inspiration from Dandelion & Burdock formulae used to produce sodas and beers, Adam successfully devised a recipe which better represent the concentrated style associated with cocktail bitters.
Liquorice, honey, and subtle spice on the nose. Complex with earthy/woody notes and hints of malt, honey, muscavado, anise, liquorice, citrus peel and ginger. Long, bitter liquorice and treacle finish with continued spice.
Try in a Tequila & Tonic, Sazerac, Blonde Boxer, Almond Old Fashioned, New York Minute, Paloma, Tommy’s Margarita, Dry Martini, Gimlet or Whirl-Y-Gig.
About The House of Botanicals:
Situated underneath Aberdeen’s railway line and next door to its largest shopping centre, Union Square, The House of Botanicals is a 2500 square foot unit which is a combination of gin distillery, liqueurist, bitters manufactory, tasting room and shop. While now producing a range of products, it all started in the late 2000s with The Jerry Thomas Project—an endeavour by Adam Elan-Elmigirab to recreate all the drinks from Professor Thomas’ seminal tome The Bon-Vivant's Companion. It was this venture which conceived the reformulation of Boker’s Bitters, and later Dr. Adam Elmegirab’s Bitters Ltd; now trading as The House of Botanicals.
