»The Bitter Truth – Pimento Dram« is based on selected pimento/allspice (also called jamaicapepper) and the finest Jamaican rum. English explorers coined the term allspice because the berry seemed to embody the flavors of cinnamon, nutmeg and clove all at once. On the Caribbean island of Jamaica, this distinctive aromatic liqueur has been produced for generations by macerating allspice in rum.
Sweet, spicy and very intense. Clove initially presents itself in the foreground, fading into the pure flavors of cinnamon, nutmeg and pepper which linger on the tongue.
»The Bitter Truth – Violet Liqueur« is made from wild violet blossoms that grow in the Alps which are then added to the finest grain spirit. It captures the delicate and elegant flavors of this fragile flower in a very impressive way. This authentic violet liqueur makes it possible to mix classic cocktails like The Aviation and The Blue Moon true to the original recipe, as well as modern cocktails such as the Violette Fizz.
Slightly sweet and very flowery. The violet aroma is very subdued and natural.
»The Bitter Truth – Apricot Liqueur« combines the juice of sun-ripened apricots from Klosterneuburg with an apricot schnapps that was distilled from the same fruit. The distinctive fruitiness and reduced sugar content of this apricot liqueur is captivating, and is indispensable in many classic and modern cocktail recipes.
Sweet and fruity. The aroma of ripe apricots is dominant. In the background, a hint of almond from the apricot pit is noticeable.
