Jason Wilson of the Washington Post mentions Bittermens in his latest column about bitters:
“Over the past five years, a slew of new bitters, from companies such as Fee Brothers, the Bitter Truth and Bittermens — not to mention numerous bartenders creating their own house-made bitters — have ushered in a veritable Bitters Renaissance. Now, you can find peach, grapefruit and rhubarb bitters. Certain varieties, such as Fee Brothers Whiskey Barrel-Aged bitters and the Bitter Truth’s celery bitters and Bittermens Xocolatl Mole bitters, have quickly become new classics.”

The Boiler-Bach – which uses both Bittermens Orange Cream Citrate and Bittermens Xocolatl Mole Bitters – is one of Tasting Table’s Best Cocktails of 2011. From Tasting Table:
“At first glance, you may think Avery Glasser’s Boiler-Bach is simply a glass of beer. But this riff on the Seelbach cocktail and Boilermaker technique, in which beer is mixed or chased with booze, melds hoppy, Pennsylvania-made Stoudt’s pilsner with Cointreau and a trio of bitters. A shot glass of bourbon is plopped in as a final touch.”
The Boiler-Bach is currently on the menu at Amor y Amargo in NYC’s East Village.
