Angostura orange bitters are new, but the category dates back to long before US prohibition. Orange bitters were incredibly popular at the turn of the 20th century, and were a key ingredient in many original cocktail classics. For example, orange bitters were one of the main ingredients in the original Martini, 'The Martinez' (Gin, Sweet vermouth & Orange bitters). Only very few bitters survived the prohibition era (Angostura aromatic bitters was one) - and during this time orange bitters disappeared from the back bar. Until now!
