Peychaud's Aromatic Cocktail Bitters


Peychaud's Aromatic Cocktail Bitters, known for its delicate and lighter profile, entices the palate with its sweet and aromatic notes. Anise and cherry are the two primary flavors, balanced by hints of clove, orange, and mint. The bitter finish adds complexity, balancing the sweetness and ensuring a well-rounded experience.

Peychaud's is an essential ingredient in the official Sazerac cocktail and an indispensable staple in any bar, anywhere as they're also used in many other standard cocktails. Their distinct flavour and bright red hue make them a perfect float on a frothy sour or to liven up everything from simple Rye and Gingers to complex Negronis.

Antoine Amédée Peychaud came to New Orleans from the island of San Domingo, the former French colony that is now Haiti. By 1832 he owned an apothecary in the French Quarter where he made his famous bitters. These bitters gave a little zest to the elixirs he sold at his pharmacy and over time Peychaud's bitters became wildly popular. His recipe of distilled spirits infused with botanicals is still used today.
