About Peychaud's Bitters
Peychaud's Bitters are regarded as an indispensable staple in any sophisticated bar, and we could not agree more. In fact, there is no Sazerac cocktail without Peychaud's. With production dating back to the 1800s, Peychaud's Bitters were originally created by Antione Amédée Peychaud, who also created the Sazerac cocktail. This little elixir can be surprisingly tricky to find these days.
Similar to Angostura Bitters in that they're a gentian-based bitters, but the taste profile differs according to Mr. Boston Drinks, it's light and fruity with hints of caramel, licorice, and cherry and spices. The aroma contains notes of mint and anise.

Peychaud's is exactly as one might expect. Like a bottle of very well-balanced essentials of the classic baked sweets variety: allspice, clove, a touch of anise, cinnamon, vanilla, & many more subtle notes. As you may guess, while nothing special on its own, it transforms any & all beverages from bright & sharp to dark & heavy. A necessity for anyone, amateur or expert.
