Bob’s Lavender Bitters

Bob uses dried French lavender flowers, sweetly redolent of a Provençal garden, and steeps them in alcohol to create this whimsical tincture.

Bob knew the floral freshness of lavender would enhance the aromatic botanicals contained in Gin but he was thrilled to note that the citrus and rosemary notes in Bobs Lavender Bitters work perfectly with Tequila and Vodka too.

From a culinary perspective…

Marylebone cocktail den, Purl teamed up with Chase Williams Gin to create this beautiful teacup cocktail to commemorate the Royal Wedding. It was served with a smoking teapot of Earl Grey to create a truly sensory experience.

Intensely floral and one of the least bitter, this has a wonderful fresh lightness. The lavender bitters have become a favourite of mine in a Gin and Tonic.

Oh Gosh!

Many of Bob’s Bitters are high concentrations of botanicals used to flavour gin… His lavender bitters brought a stylish, elegant tinge to a gin and tonic.
