A concentrated cocktail flavoring patterned after the original Scubac de Lorraine, a liqueur that was prominent in the early 1800s in northern France. A variation of the usquebaugh cordials of England, it was prepared with angelica seed, juniper berry and other spices, dried fruits, and a prominent amount of Spanish saffron. 

Mixing Notes:

Our Scubac Bitters puts one of the world's oldest beverage flavors within reach of the creative mixologist.

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.
