The Darkness - Embrace the darkness... The Darkness Cacao Coffee bitters are a rich blend of flavors with a deep chocolate essence, strong notes of coffee and a complex undertone of dark spices. Add to that a pleasant, warming bitterness and just a hint of orange and you're ready for the darkness.

Tasting Notes: 

Aroma notes of cacao, dark chocolate, coffee, spice and burnt orange. Taste follows with cocao, dark chocolate, coffee, cinnamon, brown sugar and a subtle bitter note.

These bitters work particularly well in brown spirits but they also offer an interesting play of flavors with mezcal or tequila. Try them in a Mai Tai, a Mint Julep or a Rob Roy.
