Celebrating the incredible flavours from the beautiful country of Brazil
The conversation around terroir in the world of spirits is rarely had and it’s something we’re exploring at The House of Botanicals with our Single Origin series, kicking things off with Brazilian Bitters.
A unique formulation created in 2017, Brazilian Bitters are focus on six key botanicals from Brazil; tonka beans, cacao nibs, dried coconut, Arabica coffee, vanilla and black pepper, with additional botanicals selected for their complimentary flavours and their wide usage in Brazilian food and drinks, helping create aromatics and flavour unlike any other.
In every case possible we intend to source botanicals directly from fair trade suppliers, ensuring money is fed back to the pockets of the farmers and growers of these incredible botanicals.
