In this world there’s
bitters. And then there’s
Australian Bitters

Australian Bitters

Our original Australian Bitters is hand crafted from over 20 natural botanical herbs and spices. In the pursuit of perfection, only ingredients of the highest quality are used, resulting in unparalleled quality and a far superior taste. Not wanting to blow our own trumpet, it’s also the key ingredient for our popular, Lemon, Lime & Australian Bitters.

Australian Bitters Orange

Our Australian Bitters Orange is made using time honoured maceration and extraction techniques. Simply put, we take a blend of the best herbs around, add orange peel, then extract the bitters flavours over time. The end result is something you’d trade your soul for. Try a drop or three in an Old Fashioned or Dry Martini and you’ll see what we mean. Available in 125ml.

Australian Bitters Grapefruit

Grapefruit peel and a good helping of natural herbs. Yes, there isn’t much more than that to our Australian Bitters Grapefruit. It is a surprisingly humble concoction that’s the end result of our traditional maceration and extraction techniques. However, not to be understated, this can give a Hemingway Daiquiri, that little extra punch. Available in 125ml.

Australian Bitters Barrel Spice

Following the same time honoured maceration and extraction techniques as our other blends, our Australian Bitters Barrel Spice can add a spicy zing to any cocktail. Made using the finest herbs and spices, we extract and blend the high quality yet balanced bitters and spice flavours over a lengthy period. The final mix is then macerated in French Oak to allow for the subtle, yet balanced oak notes to add that finishing flourish. Perfectly suited to a Manhattan or Whiskey Sour. Available in 125ml.

WHEN LIFE GIVES YOU
LEMONS ASK FOR LIME
AND BITTERS TOO

Lemon, Lime & Australian Bitters

No one knows who mixed the very first Lemon, Lime & Bitters. But whoever it was, we’d like to thank them and shake them by the hand. The perfect mix of lemonade, lime cordial & bitters has taken our world by storm and no self-respecting drinking establishment will be without it on their menu.

Of course, the prerequisite four or five dashes of Australian Bitters really makes the drink the Antipodean classic we love. Best served over ice and garnished with slices of lemon and lime. Naturally.
