Scrappy’s Bitters Bergamot Special Reserve - 10 Year Anniversary Blend

A few words from Scrappy's Bitters founder, Miles Thomas, on Bergamot Bitters and celebrating 10 years of perfecting the craft:

Bergamot is a flavor I’ve always been kind of obsessed with and in the beginning it was just too cost prohibitive for us when we were first starting out as a small company with no outside funding. But now that we’re a major global supplier, it just made sense that I would use the occasion of our 10 years as a company, and the subsequent success we’ve enjoyed, to do something I was never able to do before. I’m really happy with how it turned out and I can’t wait for people to get their hands on it and try it. 

It’s a very floral and perfumey flavor. Very delicate and very complex at the same time. I think for a cocktail with this bitters, simplicity is key. That’s why for the featured cocktail recipe we have on each bottle, we created The Decade, which is for all intents and purposes a classic gin Martini with Scrappy’s Bergamot Bitters. It really lets the bergamot shine. Our favorite way to make it is with a London Dry Gin and Mancino Bianco vermouth.

It’s really tremendous to celebrate 10 years of making a living out of my passion.  I’m so happy to have made it this far and there’s no end in sight. I am immensely thankful to all the people and mentors that have helped me along the way, and of course my staff and the cocktail community at large. Without them I wouldn’t be where I am today.

NB: These bitters are a one time release and available in limited quantities. Due to their exclusive nature, expensive ingredients, and special packaging, they come at a higher cost than the rest of the Scrappy's Bitters range.

About Scrappy's Bitters:

Another disappointing 'not bergamot' bitters

By: on 28 June 2019
I am a man who loves the aroma of bergamot orange. Whether in Earl Grey tea, Earl Grey marmalade or cologne. Unfortunately, this supposedly bergamot bitters has no aroma of bergamot that I can detect. The bitters is stronger in flavour than the Miracle Mile equivalent - about the same volume needed as Agnostura to be added to Indian tonic water to achieve the same enhancement in flavour. The flavour is quite unpleasant to my taste buds - anise overwhelms all the other aromas present including the bergamot. A great pity as this 'Special Reserve' is twice the price of unreserved bitters. All in all, a great disappointment!
