Underberg Natural Herb Bitters (20 ml)

$ 1.95

Brand Underberg

Underberg, first introduced in Germany by Hubert Underberg in 1846, is filled with mysterious herbs to aid digestion and refresh your spirit after a heavy meal. The exact number and identity of those herbs are still heavily guarded by the Underberg family 165 years after its creation. This amazing concoction tends to pop up in American towns wherever there is a strong German presence, like the Barbecue Belt of Texas (where our friends who introduced us to Underberg hail from).

So what does it do? Well, it sets off a bomb in your stomach that frees you from the agony of over-indulging in bratwurst and späetzle (among other things). We want to be honest and fair with you: your first Underberg is an eye-opening experience. The flavor can be described as intensely herbaceous, a bit licoricey with the fire of an alcohol fit to be called a digestive aid. It is fire water. But lovely fire water that we happen to seek out whenever we can.
