Angostura distillery

Angostura has announced a partnership with Coffee House Rituals to bring some Christmas flavour to two of its beverages which will be infused with Angostura’s latest creation, its cocoa bitters.

According to a release from Angostura, its cocoa bitters will bring Yuletide flavour to two seasonal beverages at Rituals Coffee House; its Iced Cinnamon Mocha and Holiday Nog.

“The Iced Cinnamon Mocha is a chocolatey mocha infused with Angostura cocoa bitters, sprinkled with cinnamon, and topped with decadent Angostura cocoa bitters whipped cream. The Holiday Nog is a warm, creamy eggnog infused with Angostura cocoa bitters, enhanced with a drizzle of caramel, and topped with Angostura cocoa bitters whipped cream,” the company stated.

Angostura said the creative Christmas specialty beverages embody the spirit of Angostura, which will bring festive flavour, quality and variety to people’s lives.

Angostura cocoa bitters is made using Trinitario cocoa nibs, grown in T&T. Trinitario cocoa boasts a legendary history dating back centuries and has earned international recognition as the world’s finest hybrid.

Angostura’s Chief Executive Officer (Ag.) Mr. Ian Forbes stated: “We are excited to partner with and support local businesses, including our cocoa industry…. This can provide sustainable business opportunities for local cocoa farmers to nurture and grow their businesses, especially now, when there is a national thrust geared towards the development and diversification of our agricultural sector.”
