Default Bitters

Finally found a site that had some different bitters, and ordered them.

I now have Pechauds Aromatic Cocktail Bitters, Regan's Orange Bitters #6, Fee Brothers Orange Bitters, and Fee Brothers Old Fashion Aromatic Bitters. And Angostura, of course.
I will be experimenting with them in my rum and gingers, among other things.
If any of you recommend other bitters for the supply, please let me know where to order them, or find them. They are hard to find here.

rHank - That is funny you bring this up today. Yesterday I was in a bookstore looking through a magazine, and there was an ad in the magazine for Fee Brothers bitters! I've not heard of this or seen it before!

I picked up a 5 oz bottle of the Peychauds this past week on my trip to Saint Louis.

Hank, there is a EBay seller - KegWorks which has different bitters:

For instance you can get these:

Stirrings Blood Orange Bitters
Fee Brothers Peach Bitters

Those Stirrings bitters are really good - but they're non alcoholic (?!?) so if you do procure those be sure to refrigerate (and/or toss a splash of spirits in them).

The Fee's Peach & WI Orange are great - the Lemon & Grapefruit are so so (too sweet/potable).
There are a few other odd bitters - check out The Bitter Truth or the Hermes line of products by Suntory (I don't think they have a website) are available from here.

There are some other ones out there also & you could always have a go at making your own.

I`m waiting for those sellery bitters to be available from The bitter truth ...and even more, the Bittermens Mole xocoatl bitters,Tikidrink bitters and Squirrel nut bitters.

But i`m going to make the Spiced lemon bitters.

BTW have anyone yet tried Fees new whiskey barrel aged bittters?

Are those available yet? I kept hearing about them being given out as samples but seems like they're having trouble getting U.S. "potable" approval..

As far as i know these are not available for purchase yet..if i had lived in the US i would have been lucky to get a sample..

But if you visit their website you will see at which bars they use them.
