Difford’s Daiquiri Bitters

These bitters are bittersweet rather than simply bitter. Rich roasted pineapple with fresh fragrant mint and complex herbal and rooty bitterness.

“It struck me that some classic cocktails, particularly the daiquiri and margarita lack the extra complexity that bitters might add.”

“We’re passionate about daiquiris and so we challenged our mate Bob ‘The Bitters’ to create this cocktail elixir flavoured with caramelised pineapple, peppermint, spearmint and other secret aromatic ingredients, designed to lift a natural daiquiri. Just add 4 drops.”

Reviews for Difford’s Daiquiri Bitters


Bob made a Daiquiri Bitters for Simon Difford, and once again Bob delivers. Offering subtle bittersweet notes, this quite aromatic bitter will lift your favourite daiquiri to new heights, with roasted pineapple and mint as the key players, leaving a complex herbal sensation.

You don’t think of adding bitters to some cocktails. However these bitters are like a gatecrasher that ends up being the life and soul of the party with every sip. It perfectly elevates a classic daiquiri with notes of exotic pineapple and a melody of mint! Versatile enough to use in a variety of rum cocktails including a Rum Old Fashioned.

It took Bob months of trial samples before he arrived at these delicious bitters, which do indeed add an extra layer of complementary complexity to a daiquiri.
