Proof66 Notes

The Bitter Truth EXR liqueur is in the "bitters" category of liqueurs, though they themselves describe it as "firmly rooted in the traditions of both classic sweet vermouths and alpine digestive tonics." They say it is "velvety smooth... aromatic, and herbaceous" and recommend for Manhattan or Negroni cocktails.

Liquor Snob had a positive review for the Bitter Truth EXR saying, "E**X**R is an enigma wrapped in a riddle, smothered in mystery sauce. It starts off sweet and ends up with a pleasant bitterness that will appeal to adventurous drinkers and those who like their drinks with some zazz."

[Note: there's a review from Wine Enthusiast that shows Dolin producing the EXR on behalf of Bitter Truth... we are trying to verify.]

The 2012 Beverage Testing Institute suggested adding it as a "dash" in cocktails or a "splash" into ginger ale.

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: "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."
