Country of origin:   USA         Alcohol content: 38% Alcohol by Volume

A cocktail flavoring whose creation was inspired by memories of dining in San Francisco's Chinatown during the late 1940s and early 1950s, at such fondly remembered restaurants as the Jade Palace, Shanghai Low, The Lamps of China, Lotus Bowl, Tao Lee Yon, Kay Kay Garden and Universal Cafe. Flower Drum Bitters will add a subtle, exotic note to classic "oriental" cocktails such as the Canton, the Shanghai and the Chinatown.

About San Francisco Bitters Co:

Defunct bitters once used in saloons along the Cocktail Route of 1890s San Francisco, as well as bitters that were popular elsewhere during that period. Unavailable for decades, they have been reincarnated for today's creative mixologist and bartender by the San Francisco Bitters Company.

The cocktail bitters in the San Francisco Bitters Collection are prepared from complex mixtures of botanicals and pure grain alcohol, using the same methods that were used by the manufacturers of the original bitters. The formulas were reconstructed after years of researching distiller's formularies, pharmaceutical dispensatories, newspaper advertisements, manufacturers' advertising pieces, medical and judicial writings, and the chemical analysis of surviving bitters. Unfortunately, not all of the botanical ingredients that were present in the original bitters are permitted today by the FDA for use in flavoring products, hence it was not possible to reproduce all the bitters in their exact original form. In certain cases, adjustments have been made through the unique use of combinations of other botanicals which simulate the flavor characteristics of the original, and now prohibited, ingredients.
