The Bitter Truth Creole Bitters: A Dive into Flavour 


Unleash the vibrancy of Creole cuisine in your cocktails with The Bitter Truth Creole Bitters. This 20cl bottle from The General Wine Co. packs a flavour punch, transporting your taste buds to the heart of Louisiana.

Aromatic Adventure

The first encounter with Creole Bitters is an aromatic adventure. Anise, a liquorice-like spice, takes centre stage, mingling with the sweetness of dried fruits like cherries, cranberries, and apricots. Hints of paprika add a touch of smokiness, while pine needles add a surprising and invigorating twist. Imagine walking into a kitchen in the French Quarter of New Orleans – that's the essence captured in this complex and inviting aroma.

Tasting Profile: A Symphony of Sweet, Spice & Smoke

On the palate, Creole Bitters explodes with flavour. The initial sweetness of dried fruit gives way to the assertive warmth of anise. The smokiness of paprika emerges, adding a touch of depth, while the pine needles provide a refreshing counterpoint. The bitterness builds slowly, leaving a lingering yet pleasant sensation on the tongue. This is a bitters that is both bold and nuanced, making it a versatile tool for crafting unforgettable cocktails.

Serving Suggestions: A World of Cocktail Creativity

With its unique flavour profile, The Bitter Truth Creole Bitters elevates a wide range of cocktails. Here are a few suggestions to get your creative juices flowing:

  • The Sazerac Twist:  This classic New Orleans cocktail traditionally uses Peychaud's bitters.  Try substituting a dash of Creole Bitters for a deeper, more complex flavour experience. The anise and dried fruit notes will complement the rye whiskey beautifully.
  • The Vieux Carré Remix: Breathe new life into this iconic cocktail by adding a bar spoon of Creole Bitters alongside the traditional Peychaud's and Angostura bitters. The pine and paprika notes will add a surprising yet delightful twist to the familiar blend.
  • The Creole Manhattan: Put a Creole spin on the timeless Manhattan. Combine rye whiskey, sweet vermouth, and a dash of Creole Bitters. The anise and dried fruit notes will play harmoniously with the rich whiskey and sweet vermouth, creating a truly unique and flavourful Manhattan variation.
  • The Spicy Margarita:  For a taste bud adventure, add a dash of Creole Bitters to your classic margarita recipe. The smokiness of paprika and the pine needles will complement the tequila and lime juice, creating a smoky and refreshing twist on the margarita.
  • Beyond Cocktails: The Bitter Truth Creole Bitters isn't limited to cocktails.  Add a dash to elevate a simple spritzer or splash of soda water.  The bitters will add a touch of complexity and intrigue to non-alcoholic beverages.
