: Fee Brothers has been in business since April 1,1864 in Rochester, New York (home of!). Along with being one of the few remaining manufacturers of bitters, they also are one of the largest bar mixes and supply firms in the U.S. and produce flavorings and syrups for coffee shops, restaurants, etc.

First Impression: Smells like chocolate, bitter quinine, caramel. Scents of bitter zest of bark also in the background.

Appearance: Clear, Dark brown in color, thick and oily at the same time.

Taste: Bitter, aspirin or quinine taste with of course chocolate alkali overtones, Somewhat artificial tail or aftertaste but would probably be unnoticed in a drink.

Drinks: Not really sure of how to use this one. No known drinks call for it that I know of.

Bottle: Simple paper wrapped clear glass bottle, with a screwcap closure. It is distinguished from the other bottles by the chocolate color of the printing and dark red colored shrinkwrap around the top and neck.

Other: Other varieties of bitters include : Cherry, Celery, Cranberry, Grapefruit, Lemon, Mint, Old Fashioned Aromatic (Angostura), (West Indian) Orange, Peach, Plum, Rhubarb, Black Walnut , and the Whisky Barrel series : Whiskey Barrel Aged 1 (2007) , Whiskey Barrel Aged 2 (2008), Whiskey Barrel Aged 3 (2009), Whiskey Barrel Aged 4, (2010),  and Whiskey Barrel Aged 5  (2011)

Final Thoughts: An interesting addition to any cocktailian's bar supplies I suppose but of somewhat limited utility. This product is the *only* Aztec Chocolate bitters commercially available in U.S. (and that's saying something)!
