The bitters recipe has been seven years in development with each botanical ingredient being individually prepared using specific maturation conditions. Marian Bruce says: “We work individually with each wild plant to determine the conditions to extract the best flavour, then we combine them to achieve the final recipe that brings an aromatic bitterness essential to cocktails and which also enhances the flavours of the other cocktail ingredients.”
