This brand and product is almost 200 years old.
They journey started in 1824, when Dr. Siegert produced aromatic bitters for the first time in order to alleviate stomach ailments of soldiers. Dr. Siegert served as Surgeon General of the army of Simon Bolivar, widely recognized as the man who liberated multiple South American nations from Spanish Colonialism.
In the 1870’s, Dr. Siegert’s three sons migrated to Trinidad, among them Don Carlos Siegert, who pioneered the brand, establishing ANGOSTURA® aromatic bitters as an integral ingredient in cocktails and in food.
The rest, as they say, is history. ANGOSTURA® aromatic bitters is today a staple for bartenders and cocktail enthusiasts, professional and home cooks alike, bounded only by the creativity and imaginations of those who use it.
