The Bitter Truth

Great bartenders for generations have held close secrets to their success of creating amazing cocktails. Many held these secrets so close that their recipes have all but disappeared. Well, we’re ready to divulge the truth — bitters.

Yep, this mysterious little bottle at the back of the bar holds a power pack of flavour that can transform the mundane into a speeding train of holy wow. A few drops into a Manhattan and you’ve gone up town and a dash in the old G&T and you’re better than Bond. Give it a shot.

What’s in the bitters that makes them so incredible? That’s Peter’s secret but we’ll tell you how they’re when you visit us here.
