A new bottling released in the summer of 2011, Aphrodite Bitters are a unique, hand-crafted cocktail ingredient which take their name from the Greek goddess of sexuality and love.
Aphrodisiacs are substances that are alleged to increase sexual desire and like many traditional bitters the botanicals selected for this bottling have been chosen for their alleged medicinal qualities, in this case as an aphrodisiac. The finest chocolate, cocoa nibs, ginger root, red chilli, Arabica coffee and ginseng are compounded to create a complex flavour profile with each botanical playing off and enhancing one another.
Paying homage to bitters of days gone by this bottling is a welcome addition to Dr. Elmegirab's bottle line and are in demand around the globe to be used in a number of classic cocktails and original libations such as the Merchant Quarter created by Adam Elmegirab in June 2011;
