Elevate Your Cocktails: A Detailed Tasting Note on Fee Brothers Whisky Barrel Aged Bitters 150ml

At The General Wine Company, we understand the importance of the perfect cocktail. A splash of bitters can be the magic touch, transforming a good drink into a masterpiece. Today, we're delving into the world of Fee Brothers Whisky Barrel Aged Bitters, a unique ingredient that adds depth and complexity to your favourite tipples.

A Bitters with Bite: The Fee Brothers Legacy

Fee Brothers has been a trusted name in the bitters industry since 1864. Their dedication to using high-quality ingredients and innovative ageing techniques shines through in their Whisky Barrel Aged Bitters. This 150ml bottle packs a powerful punch of flavour, perfect for adding a touch of sophistication to your home bar creations.

Aged to Perfection: The Flavour Profile

The magic of Fee Brothers Whisky Barrel Aged Bitters lies in its unique ageing process. Freshly emptied oak barrels, once used by America's finest distilleries, are given a new lease on life. These charred and flavour-infused casks become the resting place for Fee Brothers' aromatic bitters recipe. The result? A complex and nuanced flavour profile unlike any other bitters on the market.

On the Nose:

The first impression is undeniably enticing. As you uncork the bottle, a warm wave of aromas washes over you. The rich, oaky notes characteristic of aged whiskey are immediately apparent. Hints of vanilla and caramel, picked up from the charred barrels, add a touch of sweetness. Beneath this lies a subtle layer of spice, with whispers of cinnamon, cardamom, and cloves. The citrus element, a cornerstone of Fee Brothers bitters, peeks through with a refreshing zestiness.

On the Palate:

The initial burst of flavour is a delightful surprise. The expected bitterness is present, but it's beautifully balanced by the sweetness of the whiskey barrel influence. The oaky character translates seamlessly onto the tongue, offering a smooth and slightly tannic sensation. The promised spices emerge, warming the palate with a gentle heat. The citrus notes, more subdued than on the nose, provide a refreshing counterpoint and prevent the bitters from becoming cloying. The finish is long and lingering, leaving you with a pleasant aftertaste of oak, vanilla, and spice.
