The story of Angostura bitters is a journey through time. It started in 1824, when founder Dr. Johann Siegert first produced aromatic bitters as a medicinal tincture designed to alleviate stomach ailments. In the 1870's, Dr. Siegert's three sons migrated to Trinidad, among them Don Carlos Siegert, who pioneered the brand, establishing ANGOSTURA® aromatic bitters as an integral ingredient in cocktails and in food. The rest, as they say, is history.
A cocktail cabinet without Angostura Bitters has been described as "a kitchen without salt and pepper". Its delightful flavor and aroma have made it extremely popular for use in soft drinks, cocktails and other alcoholic beverages. It also imparts an exquisite flavor to a smorgasbord of dishes, from soups and salads to fish and meats. Called for in some dessert recipes, too.
