Amargo Chuncho Bitters is named after the ethnic group of Amazon Indians that resisted the Spanish Conquistadors. It is the original Peruvian bitters and is the only bitters that makes a truly authentic Pisco Sour.
Despite the small amount of bitters used in cocktail recipes, they have a very definite effect on the flavour profile of a drink, helping to bring the ingredients together. Don’t think that because of the name it will immediately make the drink bitter. In a cocktail, Chuncho works more like adding herbs to a sauce – it is an essential ingredient on any bar.
The most popular bitters in Peru, named Chuncho after the ethnic group of Indians who resisted the might of the Spanish conquistadors. A complex macerate of over 30 various peels, herbs and aromatic flowers rested in oak for 6 months.
Tasting Notes: Packed with the cinnamon, nutmeg and allspice notes you’d expect from this style of aromatic bitters, Chuncho also brings a floral base mixed with cherry and cola syrup; a Pisco Sour isn’t the same without it!
