The Bitter Truth marks 10 years with Drops and Dashes

The Bitter Truth Drops & Dashes

A new range of cocktail bitters has been introduced by The Bitter Truth, the specialists in bitters and liqueurs, to tie in with celebrating its 10th anniversary.

Drops and Dashes are four unique and limited-edition flavours available in glass decanters with cork stopper and additional black dasher in individual full-colour The Bitter Truth-style boxes.

The four flavours are:

  • The Bitter Truth’s Blossom. It is pale red amber in colour, showcasing a variety of summer blossoms from around the globe including aromatic jasmine, sweet hibiscus, earthy iris and charismatic lavender. Full of fragile fragrances, the flower basket is harmonic and delicate with new discoveries at every sip.
  • The Bitter Truth’s Nut. It is dark brown amber in appearance and driven by delicate notes of green black walnuts with hints of muscovado sugar, prunes and raisins in combination with high notes of roasted hazelnuts. Accompanied by aromatics of bitter chocolate and light espresso, the finish delivers gentle notes of cashew nuts and almonds.
  • The Bitter Truth’s Roots. It is bittersweet, brown and intensively aromatic, showing bold notes of burnt liquorice in combination with smoked and sweet spices and bitter gentian root. Light floral notes of iris root give support and supply the balancing high notes to round it off.
  • The Bitter Truth’s Wood. With its red mahogany amber colour, it delivers bone dry aromas of oak wood, Peruvian bark, light spice and fragrant notes of sandalwood. The wood notes are distinctive, soft, warm, smooth and creamy while the aftertaste is full of sweet smoke with a root beer finish.

Available in the UK through Love Drinks, they have been created to mark 10 years since Stephan Berg and Alexander Hauck, two former bartenders, developed and launched the range.

They have also created a wooden Bitter Truth Spice Rack, measuring 240mm by 240mm, to hold up to four full-size bottles from The Bitter Truth Bitters range for displaying on the back bar. To request one of the limited-edition racks free of charge, contact your Love Drinks sales representative or email
