ICELANDIC ORANGE BITTER
For centuries, our ancestors made the most of the land, learning to farm and forage the best of Iceland and scouring the world for the rest.
We have searched the world for the best flavors and ingredients and brought them home to our distillery on Iceland’s Reykjanes Peninsula. Macerated & distilled in small batches then blended with pure, naturally alkaline water from Iceland.
Lagoon Bay is a unique bitter aperitif in the color of our renowned Icelandic glaciers & pools.
IN MODERN TIMES
we mostly use them for delivering flavor & color in cocktails, but their history is as a folk remedy...
Called an amaro in Italian or an amer in French, bitter liqueurs have been made & consumed all over the world for centuries due to their unique effects on the diet.
Certain bitter liqueurs function as aperitifs when taken as a long drink or mixed with wines and have been known to stimulate the appetite before a meal. Taken on their own or mixed with spirits, bitters are believed by some to function as digestifs, intended to settle the stomach after eating.
