Bigallet China-China is made with high quality neutral spirit with macerated bitter and sweet orange peels. Added to this is a selection of botanicals, spices and even more citrus peels, creating a wonderfully bitter liqueur, not unlike an Amaro. As such, Bigallet China-China is perfect for after dinner drinks.
The bitter oranges and botanicals are balanced beautifully on the nose, giving this real dimension. Just a hint of fresh juice lends a slightly sweet reprieve. The entry is sweeter than the nose, and the medium viscosity turns clean zesty and spicy/bitter on to the refreshing finish that hangs on nicely. This is the holy grail for cocktail enthusiasts and people looking for traditional spirits.
