A cocktail flavoring patterned after Boonekamp of Magbitter, which originated in Leidschendam, Flanders in 1815. Aromatic, spicy and mildly licorice-like, it was to become the most popular digestive throughout Holland and Germany. In the saloons of 1890s San Francisco, its use was de rigueur in a "gin and bitters". Our concentrated Boonekamp Bitters can also be used for the preparation of present-day cocktails and shooters popular in Europe, such as Guido's Cocktail, Shot-In-The-Knee, and Meine Rettung (My Salvation). 20 botanical ingredients Introduced May 2012

A great "secret" addition to classic cocktails like the Bostonian, Cooperstown, Dinah, Harry's Cocktail and the Tipperary, as well as juleps and mojitos.
