Mystic Caravan - Intrigues from the caravan...
Our Mystic Caravan Smokey Pear bitters are a unique and intriguing blend of flavors that work wonders in cocktails. Rich and aromatic, these bitters use several varieties of pear for a complex fruit profile that is complemented wonderfully by a bold smoke aroma and taste. Combine that with an undertone of lemon, spice and tannins, and these bitters will take your drink to the next level.
Spirits: Extremely versatile and an excellent accent note for cocktails, these bitters work especially well with brandy (especially Calvados), scotch and most amaro.
Ideas: Try them in a Vieux Carre, a scotch Old Fashioned or a Boulevardier.
Tasting Notes: Aroma notes of forest smoke, cooked pear, cloves and honey.
Taste follows with subtle wood smoke, rich pear, nutmeg, spice and a light sweetness.
