The Japanese Bitters Yuzu Bitters 100ml
The best known Japanese fruit. An incomparably tart citrus reminiscent of a heady lemon with bergamot. The skin resembles a small grapefruit with variable skin texture. Yuzu fruit is sourced locally from farmers in Tokushima prefecture, a region renowned for yuzu production. The yuzu tree is prickly and the fruit difficult to pick, but like a rose, yuzu is worth the thorns.
Tasting notes: tart, grapefruit, lemon, bergamot.
Use in a Martini, Whisky Highball, Gin and Tonic
About The Japanese Bitters:
In the wake of the devastating Fukushima earthquake and tsunami in 2011, the Japanese Embassy in Toronto held a charity event designed to raise international awareness and funds for those affected by the natural disaster. A Japanese bartender named Yuki Yamazaki designed cocktails for the event and was celebrated by the Canadian media.
Inspired, Yuki decided to plan production of The Japanese Bitters, drops of which could add the flavours of Japan to cocktails and more.
After travelling to Schiedam in the Netherlands in 2015, Yuki learned more about alcohol production at the Herman Jansen Distillery, a longstanding distillery with a history spanning more than 250 years. Yuki moved back to Japan and produced his own bitters within 2 years.
With five uniquely crafted bitters in the range, The Japanese Bitters add a special element to cocktails (and food) and are a staple for bar or pantry.
