The Bitter Truth - Violet Liqueur is
made from wild violet blossoms that
grow in the Alps which are then added
to the finest grain spirit.
Liqueurs date back centuries and are
historical descendants of herbal medicines
that were primarily prepared by
monks. Liqueurs were made in Europe
as early as the 13th century when
medical scientists brought the knowhow
of distillation with them from the
crusades. The consumption of liqueurs
was later required at all treaty signings

The Bitter Truth liqueurs are prepared
by infusing only the best natural ingredients
like fruits, flowers and spices in
either water or alcohol (maceration),
and adding sugar.

slightly sweet with a top floral note.

natural. With The Bitter Truth - Violet
Liqueur it is possible to mix classic
cocktails like The Aviation and The
Blue Moon true to the original recipe,
as well as modern cocktails such as the
