Peychaud's Bitters

Regular price $9.00

Peychaud's is the essential ingredient in a Sazerac cocktail and an indispensable ingredient to have in your bar set up. It was created by Antoine Amédée Peychaud who came to New Orleans by way of San Domingo - the former French colony that is now Haiti. By 1832, he owned an apothecary in the French Quarter where he made his famous bitters.  These bitters gave a little zest to the elixirs he sold at his pharmacy and over time Peychaud's bitters became wildly popular. His recipe of distilled spirits infused with botanicals is still used today.
