El Guapo Spiced Cocoa Bitters 118ml
Country of origin: USA Alcohol content: 0 % Alcohol by Volume
A labor of love, these bitters are created with naturally and traditionally grown, fermented, dried, and stone-ground cacao sourced from local New Orleans chocolatier Piety & Desire. The extreme chocolate flavour is complemented by oaky whiskey notes, a bitter finish and light spice derived from cayenne pepper. These work well with all spirits, but we're especially fond of using them with bourbon, rye whiskey, and rum. They're a popular flavour for tiki-style drinks, along with Manhattans, an Old Fashioned and any milk punch.
About El Guapo:
El Guapo like to say they manufacture "everything but the booze", in fact all their products are alcohol-free. Their bitters, syrups, and mixers are made with love in the capital of cocktails—New Orleans, Louisiana—with a focus on customer service, sustainability, and quality ingredient sourcing.
Commited to sourcing the highest quality raw materials to create the best elixirs possible, El Guapo regularly source from regional farmers (some are even family members!) and work with the best spice importers in the business. The entire product line is non-GMO and they don't use any artificial flavours, colours, extracts, essences, or high-fructose corn syrup.
Living in New Orleans means being on the front lines of climate change. With hurricanes, flash floods, and abnormal summer heat waves regularly affecting New Orleans, El Guapo understands the need for sustainable practices. Their labels are made from recycled craft paper, they bottle exclusively in glass and hand-dip every bottle in wax to avoid adding single-use plastics to landfill. El Guapo CEO, Christa Cotton, is also on the board of Glass Half Full which recycles glass back into sand to fight coastal erosion in Louisiana.
