Craft cocktail bitters: What are they?

The BBC Food website investigate bitters and talk to Bob about his range of single flavours:

Bob Petrie came up with Bob’s Bitters - a range of single flavours, when the Dorchester hotel in London wanted to develop a range.

“The idea was to create ‘The Gin Experience’ serving gin with a selection of bespoke bitters. I took the idea further, making single flavoured bitters with the botanicals used in the flavour profile of gin, e.g. cardamom, ginger, liquorice,” he says.

“I enjoy a cocktail, but am not really a drinker, so I see it more as a culinary point of view,” he says.

“Palates are changing - mine aren’t as bitter as others in the market, as they are single flavours, so people like the idea of adding and mixing those with control,” he says.
