Bob’s Vanilla Bitters

Bob uses Tahitian vanilla pods to create a tincture with subtle notes of tobacco and cacao with a creamy, toffee finish.

Given the versatility and popularity of softly fragrant, sweet vanilla, Bob was surprised that a vanilla bitters product didn’t exist already and, so, set out to create one resulting in a liquid that offers an inimitable smoky vanilla flavour.

Reviews for Bob’s Vanilla Bitters


Bob’s Vanilla Bitters have a light cacao flavor, mixed with tahiti-vanilla and a breath of bitter chocolate. Vanilla Bitters are ideal for cocktails with gin or bourbon as a base.

Rueverte

Much less sweet than the vanilla extracts you can find on your grocer’s shelves. Nonetheless a pleasant and natural vanilla flavor pervades and adds plenty of dessert-like flavor to cocktails.  Great with bourbons, rums and vodkas.

Good Spirits News

A lovely vanilla flavour which has hints of chocolate, before descending in to a deep bitter chocolate and aromatic vanilla finish.

Oh Gosh!
