Angostura Bitters was first made in 1824 by Dr. J.G.B. Siegert in the town of Angostura, Venezuela. It is easily distinguished from all other aromatic bitters by its fine flavour and aromatic odour. At the principal International Exhibitions, Angostura has received considerable recognition. Because of its delightful flavour and aroma, it has become extremely popular for use in soft drinks, cocktails and other alcoholic beverages. This herbal delight also imparts an exquisite flavour to soups, salads, vegetables, gravies, fish, meat, fruit-juices, grapefruit, mixed cut-fruits, stewed prunes, stewed figs, preserved fruits, jellies, sherbets, water-ices, ice-cream, sauces for puddings, hard sauces, plum pudding, mince and fruit pies, apple sauce and all similar desserts.
