This product was originally used by Dr. Johann Gottlieb Benjamin Siegert in the town of Angostura, Venezuela to treat sea-sick patients. As time went on, the popularity of the product grew and it became available all over the world. It is produced from a secret recipe, some of the ingredients being: Alcohol, Gentian root and vegetable extracts. A few dashes of this enhances the flavor of whatever it is combined with. Amazing in cocktails, you can apply Angostura to Rum, Vodka, Gin and Cream based cocktails!
