The Redeye Bitters are based on a previously not for sale formula, The 7 Deadly Bitters, which were made with bacon fat, tobacco, and coffee.
This formula omits the tobacco, but they're still fat washed with Nueske's bacon fat and filtered with Intelligentsia Blackcat Espresso.
Now, the bad news. Replicating the tobacco flavor, and the dryness it brought to the finish was the toughest R&D challenge yet for Louis, involving several different infusion steps.
This is too long and too complex a process, so they are offered only on a limited retail release basis.
About Miracle Mile:
Longtime cocktail geek Louis Anderman started his own bitters company Miracle Mile Bitters Co when Joe Keeper of Silver Lake’s Bar Keeper—a head shop for cocktail obsessives—fell in love with Anderman’s homemade batch of chocolate-chili bitters and persuaded him to start selling it. Thank Joe that they now have a veritable variety of Louis' bitters to flavor their cocktails.
