Peychaud’s is one of the most storied names in the cocktail kingdom. Peychaud’s Bitters, now owned and operated the Sazerac Company, was originally created in 1830 by lead bartender of the Sazerac Coffeehouse, Antoine Amédée Peychaud. A Creole apothecary from the French colony of Saint-Domingue, Peychaud had settled in New Orleans, Louisiana in 1795. A gentian based bitter, Peychaud’s Bitters has a more predominant anise aromas compared to similar Angostura. First available in New Orleans in 2016, the Peychaud’s Aperitivo Liqueur is the perfect pre-dinner tipple. A recipe that is subtly citrusy and herbaceous, it stirs the appetite and refreshes the palate. With well balanced notes of bitter orange, grapefruit and wild herbs, it is perfect solo over ice or mixed in cocktails.
