Founded in 1824 in Angostura, Venezuala, Angostura Bitters has been an absolute staple ingredient in both food and drinks for decades. Initially, this iconic ingredient was created by Dr Johann Siegert for medicinal purposes and to help settle stomach upsets. By 1850, Dr Siegert was shipping his bitters across the world, and the first cocktail recipe using bitters was written.
By 1900, Angostura was firmly rooted in the now booming cocktail industry; the world-popular Old Fashioned became a staple of cocktail culture, the bitters survived the American prohibition and even made its way into cookbooks as a 'flavour enhancer'. As Angostura continually grew in popularity, the brand was expanded and new flavours were created. To this day, Angostura is described as the 'salt and pepper' of any drinks cabinet.
