Taking it to the Bitter End

August 31, 2010

If you have read this blog more than once, or ever sat at my bar, you know how much I LOVE bitters.  Bitters makes everything better:  I even put them on ice cream!  Another thing I love, being in the Southwest, is adding a little heat to a drink using various chile peppers that are locally grown   And now there is a company, based here in Santa Fe, New Mexico, that has combined these two great tastes so everyone can join in on the spice party!

Bitter End Bitters is a new line of spice based bitters in five different varieties including Memphis barbeque, Jamaican Jerk, Moroccan, Thai, nad Mexican Mole.  Each one is hand crafted (no joke, I’ve watched the process) using fresh organic chiles, spices and botanicals without extracts or oils.  Created by food lover and barman Bill York, these bitters will knock your socks off! 

Mexican Mole: Dark cocoa, sesame, and cayenne chiles.

Thai Bitters: Mint, kaffir lime, lemongrass, galangal, and Thai chiles.

Jamaican Jerk: Allspice, nutmeg, cinnamon, and Habanero chiles.

Moroccan: Cardamom, cinnamon, mint, lemon, ginger, and cayenne chiles.

Memphis Barbeque: Coffee, orange, black pepper, cumin, and chipotle chiles.

The entire line of bitters is designed where only a few drops (not dashes) are need to liven up your cocktail.  Everthing is done with great care and done by hand from the picking of ingredients to putting the label on the bottle.  Made in small batches, these bitters can substitute for aromatic or fruit bitters in any classic drink changing the flavor profile entirely, or you can hit up some of the recipes offf the Bitter End Bitters website.  The bitters are sold in two ounce bottles and can also be purchased online for $15.00 per bottle or you can get Five Pack Bundle for $70.00.  Bitter End Bitters is truly the last name in bitters!

And hey, be sure to mention my name when you buy a bottle!
