Anyone who uses this stuff knows that a bottle usually lasts 1-2 years but it's also rare to find it discounted.

For anyone who doesn't know - it's an ingredient for cocktails

I was shocked at the price last time I picked up one of these with the weekly shop. I was even more shocked to find one in the back of the cupboard when putting it away! I concur they can last for years! Also nice over icecream

yeah standard price is £50 a liter, you could compare that to a very nice single malt - luckily i only use about 4-5 drops in each Manhattan i make

Great price - good find OP.

Ooh fancy a long vodka now

i couldnt believe the price of this when i seen it in the shops it was £10! last time i bought it im sure it was around a £5!

Very nice with lime and lemonade.

Angostura Bitters lost it's special tax relief in the 2011? Budget.

Add it to a Bloody Mary, lovely.

Daft question but did you find it in the drinks aisle?

absolutely. usually the bottom shelf

Essential in a long island ice tea. Good price.

Ohhhhhh what I'd give to have a deliciously cold, long vodka just now............sadly I can't as only 3 weeks til baby number 3 arrives! Oh well, a girl can dream!! Can't believe the price it is now - as someone else mentioned, I have this in the back of my cupboard and I don't remember it being as expensive as it obviously is now! Must be years since I bought it though.

Heat added.....even if it has resulted in a craving!

Ta, op

Very nice with lime and lemonade.



Lemon and Lime Bitters.... lovely stuff

Good find OP. Will pick up next time Im in my local.

Essential in a G&T say I. Hot!

Essential for a Pink Gin - Add 3-4 drops to a goblet, twirl the bitters round the goblet before adding the Gordons! Fancy one now!

use to make an old fashioned don't draper style!

And the properly trained barman would ask "In, or out, Sir?" (whether you wanted the bitters left in or not)

champagne, brandy, a cube of brown sugar and a few drops of this - delicious and lethal

Also to be added to pork stews

45% Alcohol by volume.
don't drink it all at once...

Rhubarb bitters is where its at. If you like this check out Fee Brothers for some serious range of flavours

Add a few drops to a sugar cube and pop in a glass of cava or prosecco, muy bueno!

I have a bottle dated 1948. Found it when we where moving my grandfather and he seems to think he got it the same way. Still tastes alright.

Wow, my bottle is only 25 years old!

Canadian Club or bourbon, lemonade, bitters.

this can actually last about 20-30 years as the alcohol inside acts as a preservative. good stuff...
