An excellent bitter from a company founded in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. It's made with 9 types of Citrus pith from a combination of any of the following: Grapefruit, Pummelo, Orange: Naval, Blood, Valencia, Satsuma, Temple, Tangelo, Clementine. Lemons, Meyer Lemons, Buddha Hand, Limes. Fresh ginger. Green Cardamom, Saigon Cinnamon, Whole Star Anise provide an aromatic backdrop and give way to more subtle flavors; fennel, Coriander and Black Pepper to name a few. Bittering comes from Gentian and Angelica root. After a month maceration it is filtered and sweetened with caramelized sugar. The result is a vibrant well balanced citrus bitters with many layers. Excellent in a Manhattan or Old Fashioned.
