The Bitter Truth Tonic Bitters are easy to use just add a dash to a Gin and Tonic to add an original citrus flavour to your drink.

Much like bitters, bottled carbonated waters were used medicinally. By about 1820, improvements in manufacturing processes allowed a much greater output, and bottled water became popular. Mineral salts and flavours were added, ginger in about 1820, lemon in the 1830s, tonic in 1858 when Erasmus Bond bought us an 'improved aerated tonic liquid'.

Tonic water contained quinine - a bitter antimalarial herb- which throughout the 1800s the colonial Indian army mixed with gin, sugar and lime or lemon during cocktail hours.

The Thomas Henry bitters were made to recreate these exotic notes of citrus and spice, providing an authentic Gin and Tonic experience. Grapefruit, Sicilian lemon, lime and Seville oranges are the leading flavours backed up with herbal notes from juniper berries and coriander seeds and spices such as maze creating a grassy-fresh bouquet of like that of Japanese green tea.
The bitters are also perfect for cocktails and long drinks that are based on clear spirits such as gin, vodka, tequila or light rum Blanco - the addition of 2-3 dashes is adds depth and complexity to your drink.

It all started during a stay in London during the Bar Show BAR ’06 in June 2006. At that show, Munich bartenders Stephan Berg and Alexander Hauck gave birth to the idea of producing and distributing cocktail bitters, as they were hard to find in Germany and of inferior quality. Both of them had already gained a considerable amount of experience in producing handmade cocktail bitters for the bars they were working at. In addition, Stephan owned a large collection of current and historical bitters, some of which hadn’t been produced for decades. Thus, he knew how the most well-known bitters of the world tasted and was considered a specialist in this area.
Their criteria for the choice of flavors was mainly provided by old cocktail recipes that could no longer be mixed true to the original because one crucial ingredient had been missing – the correct bitters.
After many years of hard work they created a unique range of bitters and at Tales of the Cocktail New Orleans in 2010 The Bitter Truths Celery Bitters took away the top price for “Best New Product”. Since then the number of awards for The Bitter Truth products keeps on growing!
