The essence of grapefruit combined with the most noble of hops. We recommend adding a dash to stirred cocktails made with tequila and long drinks made with gin.When is a grapefruit not just a grapefruit?
Avid beer drinkers know that certain varieties of hops, when used in high concentration, deliver a strong grapefruit flavor. We’ve decided to use the grapefruity quality of Pacific Northwest hops along with grapefruit peel to help create a concoction with layer upon layer of vegetal bitterness. Designed to enhance young (silver) rums, tequilas and mezcal, the Hopped Grapefruit bitters play well with most cocktails where you need a little citrus punch. Try it in a daiquiri, gimlet, or even a gin and tonic (with a splash of maraschino).
