It was in 2006 when Munich bartenders Stephan Berg and Alexander Hauck gave birth to the idea of producing and distributing cocktail bitters, as they were hard to find in Germany and of inferior quality. Both of them had already gained a considerable amount of experience in producing handmade cocktail bitters for the bars they were working at. In addition, Stephan owned a large collection of current and historical bitters, some of which hadn‰ЫЄt been produced for decades. Thus, he knew how the most well-known bitters of the world tasted and was considered a specialist in this area.
Their criteria for the choice of flavors was mainly provided by old cocktail recipes that could no longer be mixed true to the original because one crucial ingredient had been missing ‰ЫТ the correct bitters.
In August 2006, the first products from The Bitter Truth were released: an Orange Bitters and an Old Time Aromatic Bitters. Shortly after that, a Lemon Bitters was released. Since then additional flavors have been added to the range: Jerry Thomas Bitters, Creole Bitters, Celery Bitters, Grapefruit Bitters, Chocolate Bitters, Tonic Bitters, Peach Bitters and Cucumber Bitters.
Released in 2008, The Bitter Truth Celery Bitters are the first celery bitters to be offered commercially in decades. A rich bouquet of flavors such as white grape, Sencha tea, lemon grass, celery leaf and fresh root ginger. It juggles artistically on the tongue as well, adding coriander seed, fresh celery and chicory to the foray. Add to a Red Snapper for the thinking person‰ЫЄs Bloody Mary. It‰ЫЄs obligatory with grassy spirits too, try a good measure in a Ti Punch or just a tickle in a gin and tonic for something to make the neighbors envious.
