During the mid-1800s Gainer’s Spanish Bitters were celebrated for their alleged medicinal properties and in particular were noted for their complex flavour profile that included layers of chamomile, citrus, spice, violet, and berries. Using knowledge of patent bitters and referencing old formulae, medical journals, and advertisements, Adam Elan-Elmegirab reformulated these bitters for a cocktail competition entry in 2010. His fellow competitors were more interested in the bitters than the sponsor brand and Adam, spotting a growing trend for chamomile influenced drinks in Scandinavia, released them as a limited edition bottling. In 2012 they became a permanent member of the range, providing a citrus bitters with a clear floral character.

Wood spice, chamomile, and burnt citrus on the nose. Initial sweetness followed by predominant chamomile and layers of complex flavour including coriander, raspberry, honey, citrus, and pomegranate. Long bittersweet finish with a hint of violet.

Try in a Dry Martini, Gin & Tonic, Alaska, Pegu Club, Bijou, Rob Roy, Pisco Sour, Whiskey Sour, Adonis, Bamboo or Ford Cocktail

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.
