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
