Where to buy Angostura bitters?

Stiles Jul 23, 2009 03:32 AM

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

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

          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.

            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.

              I'm pretty sure they have them at all of the Montgomery County Liquor stores.
