The Bitter Truth is a collaboration between Stephan Berg and Alexander Hauck. The German based bartending duo are both members of the travelling mixologists and between them have released a range of bitters, cocktail flavourings, and liqueurs designed with the world’s top mixologists in mind. While they have no local distribution there products can already be found behind top bars around the country thanks to their online store and sites like www.cocktailkingdom.com.
Always looking to the legends and forefathers of the bartending craft when creating new classics the Bitter Truth have now invoked the work of the ancient alchemists, with their latest creation Elixier: “a digestive liqueur that blurs the lines of conventional wisdom.” Elixier, firmly rooted in the traditions of both classic sweet vermouths and alpine digestive tonics, is velvety smooth while at the same time clean, aromatic and herbaceous. It embodies the caramel sweetness of port and the bitter flavours of a classic Italian amaro. The Bitter Truth suggest that you enjoy Elixier in a pre-dinner Manhattan or Negroni or enjoy it neat after a rich meal to aid digestion. While the Bitter Truth boast that Elixier is as delicate as the finest vermouths it has an alcohol content that will allow it to resist oxidation and the need for refrigeration. A thoroughly intriguing new addition to the cocktailian arsenal.
