Hi you, with a bitters “problem.” I know you: you open a cupboard and bitters fall out; you open a present hoping it’s bitters; your partner gives you the side-eye as...


Dr. Adam Elmegirab's Orinoco Bitters (formerly Dead Rabbit Bitters)

Originally produced by the Blemmerg Manufacturing Company in Boston during the late 1800s, Orinoco Aromatic Bitters were the bitters selected to feature throughout George Winter’s book, ‘How to Mix Drinks: The Barkeeper’s Handbook’. In fact it was a full page advert in this aforementioned tome which inspired their creation and subsequent global launch in 2012.

Named after one of the longest rivers in South America which runs through Colombia and predominantly Venezuela, Orinoco Aromatic Bitters hark back to a bygone era but also embrace modern cocktail culture, giving bartenders the opportunity to recreate former classics but also construct their own.

Dr Adam Elmegirab's Bitters is a line of hand crafted bitters from England. Founder and creator Adam Elmegirab has been crafting some of the finest bitters in the world, including a reverse-engineered version of the original Boker's Bitters from the 1800's.

Flavor: Cardamom, sandal wood, oak bark, angostura bark.
