Originally produced by the Blemmerg Manufacturing Company in Boston during the late 1800s, Orinoco Aromatic Bitters were the bitters selected to feature throughout George Winter’s book, ‘How to Mix Drinks: The Barkeeper’s Handbook’. In fact it was a full page advert in this aforementioned tome which inspired their creation and subsequent global launch in 2012.​

Named after one of the longest rivers in South America which runs through Colombia and predominantly Venezuela, Orinoco Aromatic Bitters hark back to a bygone era but also embrace modern cocktail culture, giving bartenders the opportunity to recreate former classics but also construct their own.
