A key cocktail element hasn’t gotten much love lately, but Woodford Reserve Bourbon Aged Spiced Cherry Bitters brings small batch excellence back to our favorite drinking “dash”. The notable bourbon maker teamed up with Bourbon Barrel Foods, blending standard gentian root with cherry and spices to create a unique alcoholic add in. The bitters are aged in bourbon barrels to build a flavor that complements any cocktail with fruit, spice, vanilla, caramel and, of course, bitter notes. We’re most excited for its use in Manhattans, where just the right hint of cherry is paramount.
