Anyone in the NYC want to stop by the Dead Rabbit to pick me up some Orinoco Bitters? There's some yummy samples of your choice and/or monetary recompense in your future. :)

Thanks to Viseguy, I am now in possession of what are likely the first two bottles of Orinoco bitters to make their way out of Scotland or NYC.

Thank you, kind sir!

My pleasure, Brian! Glad to hear that UPS "delivered".

 

And thanks for giving me the opportunity to discover this lovely new addition to the neighborhood! The taproom at The Dead Rabbit is cozy and charming, with a well-stocked bar, and the dishes being served for lunch when I visited had my mouth watering. I'm looking forward to having lunch there sometime, and to enjoying snacks and drinks in the parlor, upstairs.

 

Incidentally, as a bunny person, I was initially taken aback by the name of this fine establishment. In fact, though, there's some interesting history behind it.

Orinoco Bitters? How about an 1880's fully sealed bottle?

 


If you don't like anise at all, you're not likely to care for any decent absinthe, as absinthe is an anise flavored drink. It's kind of like asking if there are any good beers that don't taste like hops or malt.----Hiram

If you're selling, I'm buying!

 Sorry, not for sale. It may be the beginning of a new PD product though...

When I do syringe it open, I'll send some your way.

Are the Orinoco Bitters from Dead Rabbit based on this old brand? Outside of a few late 19th Century advertisements and cocktail book references, I can't find anything on this product.

I'm not sure. I'll ask Adam and let you know.
