Bitters go back almost three centuries in history and as you can guess they were medicinal in nature before used in cocktails or cooking to enhance flavors. Originally formulated by doctors and pharmacists, bitters were prescribed for stomach aches. It wasn't until the House of Angostura developed the Aromatic Bitters, some 200 years ago, that they were used for cocktails. Since then, bitters have taken new form and I don't even know how many are in the market now. But what I do know is that Muddle & Stir sells some amazing bitters for you to use in your Manhattan's, Old Fashioned's, and any other cocktail you create.
