Peychaud's Bitters 148ml


Country of origin:   USA         Alcohol content: 35% Alcohol by Volume

In 1793, wealthy plantation owners were forced to flee the island of San Domingo, salvaging what possessions they could. Many came to (what was then) the Spanish Louisiana city of New Orleans. Among the possessions of one Creole was a recipe for a compounding of a liquid tonic called bitters. His name was Antoine Amédée Peychaud and he was an apothecary. These bitters, good for what ailed one irrespective of malady, gave an added zest to potions of cognac brandy he served friends and others who came to his pharmacy. Today, Peychaud’s Bitters are produced according to the original recipe at Buffalo Trace Distillery.

Tasting Notes:

Taste is sweet with slight hints of cherry, clove, and nutmeg flavours on the nose.

Mixing Notes:

Peychaud's is an important element in the Sazerac® Cocktail and can also be used in The Manhattan, The Old-Fashioned and many other classic cocktails.

Can't make a Sazerac without Peychauds!

Beautiful aromatic bitters with plenty of herbaceousness and some fresh zing! Try it in a Sazerac cocktail and your view of Bourbon and Absinthe will change!
