Blended by Old Fashioned fanatics with the intention of enhancing whiskey cocktails rather than diluting them, Whiskey Bitters contains the botanicals expected from traditional bitters with the added complexity of a whiskey base.
Whiskey Bitters steeps orange peel, cinnamon, cardamom, cloves, vanilla, star anise and other botanicals in barrel-strength Solera Rye, creating a unique and distinct bitters that complements the notes of our rye whiskey.
The botanicals selected for our Whiskey Bitters mirror the flavours of our Solera Rye. In an Old Fashioned cocktail, the bitters will turn the flavours present in our rye whiskey up to 11.
Traditionally bitters are used to balance out the sweetness in cocktails and draw out complexity, giving it a more complete flavour profile. Our Whiskey Bitters is the perfect companion in an Old Fashioned and other whiskey-forward cocktails, or simply serve it in an Australian favourite Lemon, Lime and Bitters.
What is The Dispensary?
The Dispensary is a series of in-house flavour experiments, crafted by our distilling team for themselves and their weekend cocktails. The series is complementary to or built from our 100% Australian Rye Whiskey. Code Black Coffee is the second release under The Dispensary.
