Agnostura bitters are an aromatic addition to many cocktails. Bitters start with small bottles of neutral alcohol. These are then infused with herbs, spices, fruits, tree bark and other botanicals. Bitters add complexity to otherwise simple drinks. Drinks only need a very small amount added to come to full flavour. These bitters are essential for an Old Fashioned, and our Bad Fashioned!
