Bob’s Coriander Bitters

Coriander is one of the key flavours found in London Dry Gin and Bob uses both the nutty coriander seeds and the fresh herb in his Coriander Bitters. The seeds add warmth while the leaves provide a zesty citrus hit.

Bob was bitten by the bitters bug when the Dorchester Hotel’s legendary bar manager Guiliano Morandin asked, then-chef, Bob to create a range of bitters mirroring gin botanicals.

Reviews for Bob’s Coriander Bitters


The coriander bitters work wonderfully especially with gin, but can refine cocktails with any base to add a fine aroma and a mild hint of coriander.

Rueverte

Raised by notes of lemon zest and sustained by a warm character marked by nut, these bitters reveal a pronounced bitterness mixed with a softness subtle to the taste of caramel.

La Maison Du Whisky

Fresh and vibrant with a lively vegetal kick. A tasty bitters that is well worth your time exploring in custom cocktails. There’s a faint touch of Chartruese here that springs to mind.
