Angostura Lemon Lime and Bitters

Lemon, lime & bit­ters is the drink on order when I’m at a dreaded net­work­ing event that calls for drink­ing. It’s not only fan­ci­er than still or spark­ling water, but also tasty without the tipsy. And the bit­ters that make the tasti­est drink is that by the House of Angostura famed for its over­sized label. This here is the ready-to-drink Angostura Lemon Lime and Bitters made with their aro­mat­ic bit­ters and lem­on and lime fla­vour­ing.

The bever­age is a trans­lu­cent orange col­our with an aro­mat­ic cit­rus nose and a mod­er­ate effer­ves­cence. Served chilled, sweet and tangy lem­on and lime notes come through in the head before a pleas­ant zesty bit­ter­ness — from the bit­ters — devel­ops in the body to leave a fresh and subtle aro­mat­ic fin­ish. Angostura dis­tin­guishes itself from oth­er brands of ready-to-drink lem­on, lime & bit­ters by the depth and com­plex­ity of fla­vour brought by the zesty bit­ter­ness, which is absent in almost all oth­er brands.

This can of Angostura Lemon Lime and Bitters con­tained 330 ml. It was bottled in Australia and was pur­chased in Sydney, Australia in 2016.
