Bar40 Bitters: Umami
- THE STORY
Personalize your cocktail creations.Jamie Beurklian and Robin Jervis of Toronto's Bar 40 Bitters aim to take your cocktail experience to the next level. Their premium, handcrafted bitters are based on how we taste on the tongue - each flavor includes the compulsory bitter component and is paired with either sweet, salty, sour or umami (savory) flavor profiles.
Umami (savory) flavors naturally occur in seaweed, mushrooms, tomatoes and some cheeses. Rich and earthy, Bar40 Umami bitters adds mystery, richness and depth to any number of cocktails.
Bar40 Bitters is a progressive craft bitters company. Local to Toronto's burgeoning cocktail scene, founders Jamie Beurklian and Robin Jervis make bitters to improve the arsenal of creating next level cocktails. Their intention is to provide complimentary bitters based on the tongue and how we taste flavors.
In the past, Beurklian and Jervis have found cocktail bitters to be rather drastic and overpowering, often taking attention away from the rest of the cocktail. Bar40 Bitters is addressing that dilemma by providing complimentary bitters based on the five gustatory taste receptors. Each flavor includes the compulsory bitter component and is paired with either sweet, sour, salty or umami (savory) flavor profiles. This empowers the bar chef or cocktail creator to chose the specific taste profile of their liking for their personalized cocktail creations.
Bar40 Bitters strives for a high level of quality and complexity. They hand craft small batches from organic fruits and spices. Every batch is handmade and is slightly varied. Neutral grain spirits bring out the best flavors in their extractions, providing bitters that work extremely well in cocktails!
