The original version of Riga Black Balsam herbal bitter is created by a combination of 24 all natural ingredients – including 17 botanicals - herbs, roots, berries, fruit juices, honey, burnt sugar and some very specific ingredients like golden withy, gentian, Peruvian balsamic oil. Also included are common roots and herbs such as Valerian, Wormwood, Black Pepper, and Ginger.

In the crafting process they use their unique single-barrel infusion technology. Botanicals are infused in a spirit-water mix to create what they call “Riga Black Balsam essence”.
