WHY

Make your drink better with bitters. Bitter Union enhances and balances the different flavours in your drink providing an aromatic, bitter twist.

Our bitters are crafted in small batches and contains only natural ingredients with no added sugar. It is simple to use - just add 4-5 dashes.

 

WHAT

 
Bitter Union No. 1 aromatic bitters

NO. 1 AROMATIC

Flavour notes of sour cherry, cinnamon and clove with a bitter punch from the gentian root. Works well as an all-round addition to most cocktails such as an Old Fashioned or a Whisky Sour. For a non-alcoholic drink try this with lemonade. 

 

 
Bitter Union lemon, hop and herb bitters

LEMON, HOPS & HERBS

Flavour notes of zingy lemon, hops for floral notes, a subtle hint of herbs and a bitter kick from the artemisia plant. Works brilliantly when added to a G & T or lighter drinks and cocktails such as champagne or a Gin Fizz. It can even be used to enhance hot drinks like a cup of green tea.  

 
Bitter Union spiced orange bitters

SPICED ORANGE

Flavour notes of orange, warming ginger, star anise and a bitter hit from cinchona bark. A great addition to a wide range of drinks and cocktails such as a Dark & Stormy or a Gin Sour. Try adding this to a hot chocolate.  

 
Bitter Union rhubarb and hibiscus bitters

RHUBARB & HIBISCUS

Flavour notes of rhubarb, hibiscus, ginger and a bitter hit from the artemisia plant. A great partner to a simple G & T, vodka or champagne cocktails. For non-alcoholic options try adding to lemonade or tonic. This is the most delicate of all our bitters.

  • 1 tsp caster sugar
  • 4-5 dashes of our No. 1 Aromatic Bitters
