Black Cloud Bitters has been teasing us with new additions to their line on Instagram for some time and they’ve finally been released into the wild. In addition to their initial offering of Charred Cedar, which I reviewed previously, they now offer the following:
- Black & Blue – Vanilla and cacao are surrounded by the aroma of pungent black berries and blue berries. Ginger dances amidst a collection of botanicals. Pair this bitter with a bourbon, rye whiskey, neutral grain spirit or champagne.
- Garden Party – Modern mixologists are equipped by nature to forage for their natural ingredients. Garden party captures the spirit of the nightly forage by bringing together crisp cucumber and celery amidst a magical blend of garden herbs and botanicals. Pair this savoury bitter with a neutral grain spirit.
- Saffron Mango – The spice trail transcends Spain, Morocco, India, and more. Our Saffron Mango bitters lead you down this trail against the backdrop of vanilla, peppercorns, and cardamom. Pair this bitter with either a bourbon, rye whiskey, neutral grain spirit or champagne.
- Prairie Rose – Proud is the cowboy. Unique is the Prairie Rose bitter. Rose petals and rose hips are blended with a collection of berries and botanicals to recreate the stoic aroma of the prairies. Pair this bitter with either a bourbon, rye whiskey or neutral grain spirit.
From the get go Black Cloud has set themselves apart, most craft bitters makers tend to release an aromatic or citrus offering as their initial release, and they don’t look to be deviating from this course any time soon. Rob from Black Cloud was kind enough to send me these new flavors and I’m eager to get my hands on them and review them for you.
This release comes just in time for the holidays and Black Cloud now offers sample sets which would make a great gift idea or stocking stuffer for the bartender or mixologist on your Nice list.
