Bitters of the Month: Lemon

Fee Brothers Lemon Bitters is definitely lemony and sweeter than most bitters.  My wife suggested it might go well in a hot toddy.


  1. lemon bitters... seems somewhat oxymoronic...

    1. Haha! It's not the sweetest bitters we've tried. That would be peach.

      I have wondered about the etymology. The word for the substance derives directly from the adjective but must a bitters be bitter in order to qualify? Or is it simply a matter of preparation? A bitters is technically an herbal infusion, though fruits and seeds can be used, too.
