One of the best products I sampled at Tales of the Cocktail last year was a new rum from Haus Alpenz. A traditional Jamaican rum with a flavour profile similar to that which was prevalent in the early 20th century, Smith & Cross isn’t exactly a sipper but does work wonderfully in drinks like the Montego Bay.
This year The Bitter Truth moved beyond the world of cocktail bitters, releasing several new products to the world including three new liqueurs – pimento dram, apricot brandy and crème de violette. But what are they like, and how do they shape up to the competition and in cocktails?
