The Bitter Truth – Grapefruit Bitters do not fail on representing this oversized but under used citrus. With an instantaneous boost of the zingy breakfast fruit on first sniff, you get both the bitter oils but also the classic sharp tang on the tongue too. Alongside that there are complex vegetal tones and a dry hop finish. These bitters are best friends to Gin, Vodka, Blanco Tequila and Light Rum and are a wonderful ingredient for citrus-heavy drinks that may otherwise taste excessively sweet. Grapefruit meets with hops to create a fresh, bright citrus note. Best friends with gin and tequila, these bitters play nicely with fizzy and fruity drinks as well. »The Bitter Truth Grapefruit Bitters« reminds one of summers outdoors. Delicate to the nose, these bitters can stand up to aggressive drinks. Give a modern twist to a classic Gin and Tonic with a couple of dashes of Maraschino and the Grapefruit Bitters – or add dashes to a Daiquri or Paloma to add a new layer of complexity to cocktails that traditionally didn’t include bitters.

Producer
Originally, cocktail bitters were the ingredient that distinguished cocktails from other categories of beverages such as Toddies, Slings, Fizzes, Sours or Punches. For decades, they were an essential component of good cocktail creations. The start of prohibition curtailed consumers’ drinking habits and cocktail bitters almost sank into oblivion. Only a few brands survived that period, but even after that, not all of them managed to reestablish themselves in the new market. Angostura Bitters alone held their ground. For some time now, there has been a resurgence in the popularity of cocktail bitters on an international level. Since 2006, the German bitters company The Bitter Truth has been doing its share to contribute to this development. It all started during a stay in London during the Bar Show BAR ’06 in June 2006. At that show, Munich bartenders Stephan Berg and Alexander Hauck gave birth to the idea of producing and distributing cocktail bitters on a large scale, 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’t 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 – 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, two additional flavors have been added to the range: the Jerry Thomas’ Own Decanter Bitters, Creole Bitters and a Celery Bitters, which won the award as »Best Spirit of the Year 2008« at the Mixology Bar Awards in Germany. In addition, The Bitter Truth has released a SloeBerry BlueGin‚ which is flavored with fresh sloeberries, and a range of fine liqueurs: an Apricot Brandy, a Creme de Violette and a Pimento Dram. ELIXIER, a digestive liqueur in the grand tradition of the Alps. was added to to range to make the bridge between the bitters and the liqueur range. At the Los Angeles International Spirits Competition 2010 The Bitter Truth Jerry Thomas Bitters was crowned with a “Gold Medal” and voted “Best in Class”. In addition to that The Bitter Truth`s Original Celery Bitters and Creole Bitters won a “Silver Medal”. At Tales of the Cocktail New Orleans 2010 The Bitter Truths Celery Bitters took away the top price for “Best New Product”. The latest invention of the company is a Bitters Travel Pack with 5 different flavors in a convenient size of 100ml/3 oz, and suitable for hand luggage.
