A completely organic, locally grown and sourced Horseradish Bitters.
Notes: Finger Lakes Harvest is a relatively new company that specializes in a variety of liquid delights made from locally grown ( in the Finger Lakes of Upstate New York) fruits, vegetables, herbs, and spices. They produce a variety of Drinks mixers, Shrubs, Health Tonics, Health Shots, Bitters, and Extracts.
This is their Horseradish Bitters made with organically grown Horseradish, organic apple cider vinegar, water, “Aged to perfection”. Their other bitters include Ginger, Tumeric, Cranberry, Raspberry, Tart Cherry, Grapefruit, Blood Orange, Celery, Lime Sour. All are sugar-free. No flavor enhancers, preservatives, or colorants are ever used.
Appearance: Translucent cider yellow-brown ( apple cider vinegar colored) with bits of finely grated horseradish floating in it.
First Impression: Not nearly as pungent as you might expect. Nicely spicy without burning your nose. They went for subtlety, not brute force.
Taste: Great apple cider vinegar taste with a fair amount of horseradish, which thankfully is in the background rather than foreground.
Drinks: Ummmmm…. Not really sure beyond a Bloody Mary ( which it is great for) but I think it has great potential for a cocktail. With all the new attention given to shrubs, sours and organic, this is a great bitter to add to your mixology cabinet!
Also a great flavoring for meats, vegetables of fish.
Bottle: Simple 4 oz bottle with an easy to read label and a good quality leakproof top
Other: Very natural, organic, and local.
Final Thoughts: A great horseradish and vinegar bitter that is not overwhelming to you or your drinks.
