Cocoa D’amour Chocolate Bitters was created in collaboration with Dewar’s Blended Scotch Whisky, specifically to celebrate their 15 Year Special Reserve Blend. The result was a perfect complement to a complex Dewar's Old Fashioned. We also partnered with 5150 Chocolate to ensure only the best roasted cacao nibs would make their way into these bottles.
The seductive flavor of Ghanese cocoa perfectly blended with aphrodisiac and floral botanicals is an intimate love affair for the whiskey’s notes of honey and golden toffee.
ON THE PALETTE
Initial dark chocolate with bitter undertones followed by floral essences and a subtle earthiness that lingers. We love complexity!
A sensual addition to whiskey cocktails such as old fashioneds and manhattans, tequila and mezcal cocktails, espresso martinis… Also a perfect love affair with tiki cocktails, and pretty much anything that enjoys playing with chocolate - so pretty much any cocktail! Did we mention this is an aphrodisiac blend?!
Bitters were originally created as medicine. Tincturing plants (allowing the plant matter to marinate in alcohol for an extended amount of time) is a way to extract and concentrate the specific medicine that plants hold. Each of the plants we use has significant research supporting its medicinal use. We tincture our plant matter using varying proofs of alcohol for varying amounts of time in order to extract the best flavors and constituents (their specific medicine) from each plant. We then lovingly blend our individual extractions together to create the amazing flavors you just can’t get enough of. Although we use time honored methods of folk medicine making, we are NOT saying our bitters are medicine.
Our bitters are hand crafted using only organic and wild crafted botanicals. We are conservation minded folks who care about the plants and the world we live in. From the harvesting of the plants to the bottling of our products, we take care in every step. You’ll be able to taste the love.
