About The Bitter Truth:

The Bitter Truth started producing cocktail bitters in 2006. The Bitter Truth sticks to the »classic method« of producing bitters by macerating roots, seeds, barks, fruits, herbs and plants in an alcohol base. All ingredients are 100 % natural outside of a small amount of caramel to achieve a beautiful rich color and guarantee the best quality. The design of the bitters bottle refers to old medicine bottles from the 19th century. The label was designed with old fashioned floral ornaments and printed on plastic foil to withstand daily demands.

Tasting Notes:

With its red, mahogany amber color, The Bitter Truth’s WOOD Drops & Dashes delivers bone dry aromas of oak wood, Peruvian bark, light spice and fragrant notes of sandalwood. The wood notes are distinctive soft, warm, smooth & creamy, while the aftertaste is full of sweet smoke with a root beer finish.

Wood Bitters

By: on 9 September 2018
The bottle is very attractive and is easy to dispense from. As for the flavour, disappointing. I make a Smoked Lapsang Souchong Bitters and to me is more intensely flavoursome than the "Bitter Truth" wood variety. Be that it may, as I make only in very small batches and don't have any overheads being a home base concern, the price at $25 is comparable with what's on the market. e.g. Angostura @ $22 for 100 ml. I'm more expensive selling at $20 for 50 ml. Would I buy again ... yes but only for the attractive bottle, not the contents !
