Regans' Orange No. 6 A spicy, aromatic orange bitters with lots of cinnamon and clove.

Regans’ Orange Bitters #6 is the brainchild of Gary Regan and his wife Mardee and is produced by the Sazerac Company in the US. This is the most complexly flavored brand of Orange Bitters on the market. The subtle orange underlies tones of cardamom and coriander. It works well in aromatic drinks with dark spirits, wines, and vermouths where the orange character needs to bloom incrementally and through other flavours.

What people are saying:

“…the Manhattans I've made with Regan's orange bitters are the best I've ever had. They smooth out and enhance the whiskey in a way that Angostura doesn't even begin to approach. I can't recommend the orange bitters highly enough.”

Try it in the following cocktails:

CORLEONE

6 white grapes

45ml gin

15ml grappa

15ml simple syrup

15-20ml fresh lemon juice

2 dashes Regan's Orange Bitters

In a pint shaker glass, add 5 grapes. Hand press with muddler and pack with ice.

Shake vigorously for 5 seconds. Strain into cocktail glass.

Garnish with white grape on rim of the glass.

OLD FASHIONED

1/2 orange slice

1 lump (or cube) sugar

2 dashes Angostura bitters

2 dashes Regan's Orange Bitters

60ml Rye or Bourbon whiskey

Muddle orange, sugar, and bitters in an old-fashioned glass until the sugar is mostly dissolved. Fill with large cubes of ice (or carve one large chunk to fit the glass, if you are a true classicist). Add the whiskey. If you must garnish it, tradition calls for a "flag"-- an orange slice and a Luxardo Marasche al Frutto cherry (available at Dean & Deluca) paired together on a cocktail pick.


And how does Gary Regan’s like to use his bitters?

“My fave drink with the bitters is a 50/50 dry gin martini with liberal dashes of orange bitters--just like they used to drink them circa 1900.” he said.
