Citrus is the bitters that started it all, and Hella have refined a recipe that they believe consistently outshines other orange bitters on the market. It is slightly more concentrated, and more noticeably citrusy than other bitters in its class. This is because their small-batch approach enables them to carefully regulate the different flavours and prevent any one from overpowering the others.
Hella Bitter is a small-batch cocktail bitters company founded in Williamsburg, Brooklyn and with its heart in the Bay Area. What began in the early 2000s as a hobby turned serious in 2011, when we did a Kickstarter to raise money to make 50 bottles of citrus bitters. We must have struck a nerve because we raised more than twice what we had set out to, and with that inspiration, Hella Bitter went from being a weekend project, to being a serious pursuit of the delicious.
Hella like to call their Citrus a full spectrum bitters. Rather than focus on a single fruit they decide from as many as nine types of citrus pith for this recipe. The result is fantastic; full, bright and aromatic. Fantastic in your cooking too!
