Organic Molé Bitters

MADE BY WIGLE WHISKEY IN PITTSBURGH, PENNSYLVANIA

MOUTH SAYS...

These organic bitters get an intense and earthy flavor from cocoa nibs, chipotle, cinnamon and orris root infused into a wheat whiskey base. One dash proves that almost everything is better with a little bit of chocolate and spice!

They're made by the team at Wigle Whiskey, the first distillery to make whiskey in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania since before Prohibition. Until then, Western Pennsylvania was the heart of America's whiskey making industry. While we can't yet carry their whiskeys and other inventive spirits, they also make certified organic bitters using their own small batch wheat whiskey for the base.

If you're into making cocktails at home like us, you know one flavor of bitters just isn't enough. Whether to spice up classic recipes or to create your own new concoctions, inventive bitters are a must-have to round out any bar. But they're not just for cocktails! We love to add a drop or two of bitters to seltzer for a refreshing, healthful cooler. And adding a few drops right before serving can set off the flavors of stews and sauces as well.

Use these in a pineapple daiquiri: Muddle 1/2 teaspoon sugar with ½ oz each pineapple juice and freshly squeezed lime juice. Combine with 2.5 oz rum and a few dashes of molé bitters in a shaker filled with lots of ice. Shake until very cold and strain into a cocktail glass. Olé!
