Where to buy Angostura bitters?

Looking to make some fine cocktails and I don't think VA ABC carries such a niche item.

  1. I've seen Angostura in the cocktail mixer section of Shoppers Food Warehouse and Harris Teeter.

    1. I've seen Angostura bitters at WALMART - believe it or not!!

      1. usually in the cocktail/mixer section of most supermarkets

        1. Many large retailers sell it, as it isn't a liquor itself.
          That being said, have you thought of actually making the bitters yourself?

            I can't imagine any decent liquor store not having them.

            You can't make Angostura bitters -- the recipe is a closely guarded secret.

          2. Thanks everyone! Didn't realize I could find em at the grocery but you all just solved my search.

            I think a lot of the finer speakeasys claim they make their own bitters, but I guess I'll try stock bitters first.
