Prickly Ash Bitters – the company defunct and their product out of production since the 1910s – now finds a new life as uniquely sweet and bitter American amaro produced by Kansas’ only soil-to-sip distillery, Boot Hill Distillery.
Featuring such unique botanicals as prickly ash bark, buchu leaves, senna, coriander, grains of paradise and cubeb peppers - Prickly Ash Bitters' unique character and powerful burst of flavor is sure to spice up coffee, beef up a spritzer, or can be mixed with your favorite vodka, gin, whiskey, tequila, rum or any other spirit for a earthy, bitter kick.
Nose: Earthiness with hints of root vegetables. Heavy pine and cooling menthol round out the end.
Neat: Sweet sugar right up front followed by a powerful wallop of bitterness. Complex hints of mint and citrus dominate the center, followed by a slight numbing sensation across the tongue.
On the Rocks: The addition of ice makes the Prickly Ash Bitters significantly brighter, and softens the intense hit of bitterness, forcing it to take a back seat to the complex notes of the other botanicals.
