The essence of grapefruit combined with the most noble of hops. We recommend adding a dashof Hopped Grapefruit by Bittermens to stirred cocktails made with tequila and long drinks made with gin.
Avid beer drinkers know that certain varieties of hops, when used in high concentration, deliver a strong grapefruit flavor. Bittermens decided to use the grapefruity quality of Pacific Northwest hops along with grapefruit peel to help create a concoction with layer upon layer of vegetal bitterness.
Designed to enhance young (silver) rums, tequilas and mezcals, the Hopped Grapefruit bitters play well with most cocktails where you need a little citrus punch. Try it in a daiquiri, gimlet, or even a gin and tonic (with a splash of maraschino).
Small batch bitters are making their mark on the cocktail scene. In cities like New York, Boston and San Francisco, cocktail enthusiasts and bartenders are rediscovering long lost recipes and coming up with new signature flavors which help create the palate of the New American Cocktail. Avery and Janet Glasser launched Bittermens in 2010, contributing to the recent bitters rebirth. All their bitters are made in their Brooklyn facilities.
