Bar Keep's Chinese Bitters were developed by Josh Loving, a bartender in Austin, Texas, using a five-spice blend of clove, fennel, cinnamon, star anise and Sichuan peppercorn. Try as a substitution for Angostura in an Old Fashioned, Manhattan or for Pechaud's in the Sazerac. Profile A heady interpretation of the traditional five-spice blend, Josh Loving's Chinese bitters adds warmth and dimension to a cocktail. A favorite with brown spirits.
