Dandelion & Burdock Bitters



The second bottling to join the Dr. Adam Elmegirab’s Bitters portfolio in the winter of 2009, Dandelion & Burdock Bitters sought to highlight the earthy and herbal notes offered up by the roots they’re named after, and create an almost amaro-like bitters unseen before.

Originally a type of light mead that dates back to the 1300s, it was thought to have been created by the Italian priest Saint Thomas Aquinas and were famed for their alleged medicinal properties, similar to the many cocktail bitters that followed in later years. Taking inspiration from Dandelion & Burdock formulae used to produce sodas and beers, I successfully devised a recipe which better represent the style associated with cocktail bitters.
