Check your bar and make sure you have some angostura bitters in stock! Your Manhattans are in danger!
There’s a shortage of angostura bitters.
Patrick Sepe, chief executive of the US distributor, Angostura USA, said the production line ran dry in June and was only just getting back on track. “There has been a shortage,” said Sepe. “You can’t just turn on and off supply of bitters. It’s not like producing bottled water – it’s a very delicate, intricate process.”
