Berg & Hauck’s – Creole Bitters reflect the Creole way of life with all its beautiful complexity and spiciness.
Bitters already existed 250 years ago, but were called aromatic or stomach bitters and were primarily created by doctors and apothecaries
for the use in liquid tonics. Early bartenders added bitters to their cocktails to improve the taste of these mixed drinks. Regarding the definition of the word »Cocktail« from 1806, bitters were indispensable ingredients in this drink category. After prohibition almost all bitters had vanished from the market but were rediscovered at the end of the 20th century. Stephan Berg & Alexander Hauck started producing cocktail bitters in 2006.
Berg & Hauck stick to the »classic method« of producing bitters by macerating roots, seeds, barks, fruits, herbs and plants in an alcohol base. All ingredients are 100 % natural to guarantee the best quality of taste. Red color (E 129) is added to achieve typical red coloration.
The Creole Bitters are fully balanced: bitter, sweet and spicy. According to the traditional Creole style, fruity and floral aromas unite with the flavors of anise, caraway and fennel and therefore make these bitters a wonderful addition to many classic and modern drinks as well as soups, desserts, salads, sauces and other dishes.
The design of the bitters bottle refers to old medicine bottles from the 19th century. The label was designed with old fashioned floral ornaments and printed on plastic foil to withstand daily demands.
