The Bitter Truth Cocktail Bitters

Originally, cocktail bitters were the ingredient that distinguished cocktails from other categories of beverages such as Toddies, Slings, Fizzes, Sours or Punches. For decades, they were an essential component of good cocktail creations. The start of prohibition curtailed consumers’ drinking habits and cocktail bitters almost sank into oblivion. Only a few brands survived that period, but even after that, not all of them managed to reestablish themselves in the new market.

The Bitter Truth Bitters were specifically designed for recreating classic drinks made true to the original recipe or for experimentation with modern cocktail creations. Our bitters are made the traditional way using only the best quality natural ingredients. The Bitter Truth bitters have received multiple awards and will continue to innovate the bar world and are praised for their high quality and the number of awards for The Bitter Truth products keeps on growing.

The Bitter Truth Pink Gin

Pink Gin started out life as a sea farers breakfast, drank to rally a man against the wiles of the ocean, but now it’s had a modern make over by The Bitter Truth. It begins with a Mediterranean bouquet on the nose, with juniper, lemons and warm spices. Wonderfully calm in the mouth, juniper is still at the helm but it is supported by a crew of fresh spiced flavors like licorice, caraway and fennel which cruise to a smooth whirlpool finish. This minx is not just a common gin with a fake tan; it’s a sophisticated metro sexual in a salmon jumper. 

The tradition of blending gin and bitters was first established by members of the Royal Navy to cure sea sickness. The Bitter Truth Pink Gin is a delicious blend of traditionally crafted gin and aromatic bitters. It is designed to please modern tastes with a soft and gentle mouth feel and fine complex flavors. It is best used on its own, as a Gin & Tonic or in your favorite Martini Cocktail.

Tasting Notes:
The nose of this flavoured gin is dominated by complex fruity and floral aromas. The taste is very smooth with distinctive flavors of juniper berries in the foreground surrounded by spicy flavors of licorice, caraway and fennel.
700ml, 40% Vol.

Tiki Lovers Rum

TIKI LOVERS is the Rum brand created by Stephan Berg and Alexander Hauck. Stephan and Alexander are also the founders of the highly successful worldwide brand THE BITTER TRUTH.

While they had already branched out into the tropical category with liqueurs like Falernum and Pimento Dram, they had little interest in expanding the THE BITTER TRUTH portfolio into pouring spirits.

During one of their many trips as ambassadors for their brand, Stephan and Alex had an experience in a TIKI-themed bar, where the drinks – due to the chosen rums – tasted flat and in need of improvement.  It was then the idea of creating a range of blended rums ideal for use in TIKI cocktails was born.

Both Stephan and Alex have great affection for rum, rum-based cocktails and Polynesian pop culture, and have therefore created the TIKI LOVERS range, choosing the best rums from the Caribbean for the ultimate taste experience. TIKI LOVERS Rums are inspired by the heritage of mixing tropical drinks and the Polynesian-Angloamerican mixed influences on art and literature. 

High quality, flavourful rums to truly improve famous tropical drinks like the Mai Tai, Daiquiri, Rum Punch etc., with excellent, intense base spirits, but at sensible pouring costs. But not just for TIKI drinks or tropical cocktails, any rum-based drink will taste better with TIKI LOVERS Rum.

Throughout Stephan’s earlier years as a seafarer, he traveled the tropics and experienced rum-making first hand in the Caribbean islands of Jamaica, Trinidad, Cuba and Barbados. It was there he learned about the heritage of rum-making, blending and drinking.
Alexander, a designer, bartender and passionate Rum aficionado, was an early admirer of Polynesian pop art & culture – even more so after his first visit at the »Mai-Kai« in Fort Lauderdale, a TIKI temple built in 1956 which is still in existence. It was there he – intoxicated by Polynesian dance performances and TIKI drinks – scribbled down his first ideas for the label of their new rum brand.

All TIKI LOVERS Rums are all natural and at higher proof. Not only because this reduces pouring costs, but also because it improves the intensity, flavour and taste!

  • TIKI LOVERS WHITE RUM, 700ml, 50% Vol.
  • TIKI LOVERS DARK RUM, 700ml, 57% Vol.
  • TIKI LOVERS PINEAPPLE, 700ml, 45% Vol.
