A Legacy of Flavour

First introduced in 1930s, Angostura Orange Bitters hails from the renowned House of Angostura, established in Trinidad and Tobago in 1824.

This unique combination translates into a flavour profile unlike any other.

  • Palate: The flavour explodes on the tongue with a wave of intense orange citrus. The zesty notes are balanced by a touch of sweetness, followed by a warming sensation from the secret blend of spices. The finish is long and lingering, leaving a pleasant citrus aftertaste.
