Angostura® Aromatic Bitters For the better guarantee of product authenticity of this aromatic bitters, the label on every bottle bears a facsimile of the signature of Dr. J.G.B. Siegert. There are other aromatic bitters but only one Angostura, the brand name under which Dr. J.G.B. Siegert and his successors have sold their product throughout the world since 1830. It does not contain Angostura Bark but derives its name from the fact that it originated in the town of Angostura, Venezuela, renamed Ciudad Bolivar in 1846. It is now produced by Angostura Limited from the original formula of Dr. J.G.B. Siegert, in Port of Spain, Trinidad, W.I. It has since become famous throughout the civilized world and received the highest recognition at the principal International Exhibitions. Because of its delightful flavor and aroma it has become popular for use in soft drinks, cocktails, and other alcoholic beverages and it imparts an exquisite flavor to soups, cereals, salads, vegetable, gravies, fish, grapefruit, fresh, stewed or preserved fruits, jellies, sherbets, ice cream, many sauces, puddings, mince pies, apple sauce and all similar desserts, regulating the quantity according to taste.
