Proof66 Notes

The Bitter Truth was founded in 2006 by former bartenders Stephan Berg and Alexander Hauck with the intention of large-scale distribution of cocktail bitters, which they felt was enjoying a resurgence. Berg goes further to say:

3.6/5 Creme de Violette is a liqueur you don't see around much, but offers a great floral taste for cocktails while adding a nice color. I didn't like the Blue Moon, but it was great with Tanqueray No 10 for a TV&T (My take on a Violet Gin & Tonic). The taste is unique with a strong floral, almost perfume likeness and candied flowers on icing (like on a cake). There's a nice floral/sweet balance to this exotic liqueur making it a quality product for around $30.
