Throughout the 19th century there were a number of liqueurs produced in France with fanciful, Middle Eastern flavors and names. Among these were Oued-Allah, Eau de la Sultane and Secret du Sérail. Our Seraglio Bitters is patterned after Secret du Sérail, perhaps the most complex and exotic of them all. Its ingredients include figs, dates, sultanas, jujubes, carob bean, grains of paradise, ambrette seed, numerous spices, vanilla bean, orange blossom & jasmine extracts. A rare flavor medley from a distant era, and a sophisticated addition to original cocktails.

An unsweetened cocktail flavoring patterned after Dr. Mampes Kraüterbitter, which was created by Dr. Carl Mampe in Stargard, Pomeriana (Poland) in the year 1835. It was subsequently produced in Hamburg, then in Berlin. From 1890 to 1910, an American version, Dr. Mampes Herb Stomach Bitters, was made in Oshkosh, Wisconsin. During World War II the Berlin product was distributed freely to German military personnel. It is still made today in Berlin, but for local distribution only. Our Mampe Bitters, like the original German bitters, is strongly herbal and boldly bitter. A classic German bitters.
