BOGARTS BITTERS 350 ML

LKR 16,600.00

Although no bottles of the Jerry Thomas era ever surfaced, the common belief is that Bogart’s was a misspelling of Boker’s Bitters at that time. Still, the impact for the development of the cocktail is without question. Before other bitters appeared in cocktail recipes around the world, there was Bogart’s/Boker’s. A beautifully balanced and versatile cocktail bitter—it was even called for by name in the first Martini recipe printed in 1888, where one was instructed to use “genuine” Bogart’s/Boker’s, indicating that this most popular bitters had weak imitations floating around.

And this makes sense, because if someone were to taste one of the last remaining bottles of original Bogart’s/Boker’s bitters, they would discover that this magnificent bitter is not a cardamom bomb, but rather a beautiful mix of dark spice and chocolatey coffee, that can only be achieved by using a very expensive herb, an ingredient that others use sparingly due to cost, but also to the detriment of the final product.
