Amère NouvelleMADE BY BITTERMENS IN NEW ORLEANS, LOUISIANA
Amère Nouvelle is based on the Alsatian aperitif Amer Fleur de Bière (that translates to "bitter beer flower," as it's a bitter liqueur traditionally served splashed into a light-bodied beer).
Bittermens' new bitter is infused with orange, gentian and other secret botanicals that give it an amazing, complex flavor. It's delicious sipped on the rocks, but it also makes a versatile cocktail ingredient that can sub in for dry vermouth or amaro-style concoctions.
The distiller was already famous for cocktail bitters (the kind that you use by dash or drop) when they teamed up with Mayur Subbarao, whose homemade vermouths and liqueurs were generating tons of buzz. Together, they've created a line of liqueurs with distinctive twists on regional European classics.
