British luxury retailer Fortnum & Mason has expanded into cocktail bitters with the launch of a tea and honey-infused bottling.
Bottled at 37.5% ABV, the new Fortnum’s Tea & Honey Aromatic Cocktail Bitters has been created by Bob Petrie, the founder of UK-based producer Bob’s Bitters.
Two years in the making, the product is infused with honey from the Galician mountains in Spain and five teas – lapsang souchong, Formosa, chai spice, Ceylon and honey tea.
Fortnum & Mason recommends the addition of two or three drops to “transform” a cocktail or soft drink. It can be added to cocktails such as an Old Fashioned, Manhattan, Whisky Sour or a Breakfast Martini.
The signature serve for the expression is the Lemon, Lime and Bitters drink, which combines the bitters with Double Dutch Double Lemon Lemonade and lime juice or cordial.
