The Bitter Truth Celery Bitters have an amazing bouquet of flavors such as white grape, Sencha tea, lemon grass, celery leaf and fresh root ginger. It juggles artistically on the tongue as well, adding coriander seed, fresh celery and chicory to the foray. Add to a Red Snapper for the thinking person’s Bloody Mary. It’s obligatory with grassy spirits too, try a good measure in a Ti Punch or just a tickle in a gin and tonic for something to make the neighbors envious.A lost ingredient. Defunct for decades. Now revived to please the most discriminating palate.

»The Bitter Truth – Celery Bitters« are the first celery bitters to be offered commercially in decades. This cocktail ingredient, which had already existed in the 19th century, enriches cocktails with unusual flavors. It’s ideal for traditional corpse-reviver cocktails such as the Bloody Mary, Bullshot and Prairie Oyster, as well as Martini Cocktails and the Gin & Tonic.

In his latest post for FineCooking, Camper English describes Celery as the hottest flavor in bitters since grapefruit. Celery Bitters were defunct for decades and were served as a tonic during the late 19th century and seemed to have improved manliness. So we can thing of some kind of liquid Viagra. Years ago we were attracted by this weird sounding history and flavor profile and decided to revieve this long lost ingredient and reinvented Celery Bitters which meanwhile was named “Best New Product” at the Tales of the Cocktail Sprited Awards 2010 in New Orleans.
We remember attending a workshop, held by Bols in Stuttgart/Germany, with special guests Wayne Collins and Naren Young, which was actually the very first presentation of this new kind of bitters. Wayne & Naren were immediately attracted by this new and unusual flavor and started playing around with it. The outcome was delicous in innovative, pushing the ordinary Gin & Tonic theme to new heigths.

Here is what they came up with:

The Garden & Tonic
1.5 fl.oz. Gin
2-3 dashes The Bitter Truth Celery Bitters
2-3 dashes Elderflower Liqueur or Maraschino Liqueur
4-5 Mint Leaves
1 Slice of Cucumber
1 Lime Wedge
Tonic Water
