Regan's Orange Bitters No. 6


After struggling to find orange bitters to suit his discernible palate, noted spirits reviewer, writer, and former bartender Gary “Gaz” Regan decided to make his own. After spending considerable time trying to come up with a suitable recipe, Gaz entered into a partnership with The Sazerac Company to create his beloved orange bitters, Regan's Orange Bitters No. 6. A team of Sazerac scientists worked on the project, and finally after much trial and error (5 other batches in fact) Regans’ Orange Bitters No. 6 was born.

The flavour of Regan's Orange Bitters No. 6 is of bitter orange peel and spice, specifically cardamom. Great in all manner of cocktails for those who prefer a spicier orange rather than a juicier, sweeter orange flavour like the Fee Brothers version. Notable cocktails that can incorporate orange bitters in their recipes include the Old Fashioned, the Dry Martini, and the Revolver just to name a few.
