Orange Bitters

I've been searching around today for orange bitters, the old cocktail additive from over 100 years ago that's incredibly hard to find these days. The only place you can find it at an actual walk-in store is Dean & Deluca in Manhattan. Lord.

In 2005, there are only two brands produced: Fee Brother's Orange Bitters and Regan's Orange Bitters No. 6. Just ordered some Regan's. I feel like I'm about to receive something really rare and special. And it was only $2.50!

Here's a gallery of some of the old orange bitters bottles from history. If you find one of these in an antique shop, let me know.
We have to get togethor and drink. Not whiskey from a plastic container, but stuff you like to fix.
Dear Lonnie,

Does my fifty-three year old heart good, to see a young gent like yourself taking to quality drink...

Give us a holler, if y'all would enjoy a tad of comradeship with a couple of cheerful, fellow drinkin' non-profiteers (see ; look up
"EnviroEngr" and "Mme_TooToo", for ref.). We'll be delighted to chat.

Hey Mr. Baker,

That comment about made my day. I'm taking a break from the sauce lately, but I'll be back off the wagon come January. Would love to get together.

You live in DC?


OMG! Thank you for this.
