Apothecary Bitters - The Darkness Bitters
The Darkness - Embrace the darkness...
The Darkness Cacao Coffee bitters are a rich blend of flavors with a deep chocolate essence, strong notes of coffee and a complex undertone of dark spices. Add to that a pleasant, warming bitterness and just a hint of orange and you're ready for the darkness.
Spirits These bitters work particularly well in brown spirits but they also offer an interesting play of flavors with mezcal or tequila.
Ideas Try them in a Mai Tai, a Mint Julep or a Rob Roy.
