Here's our list of bitters and some recipe ideas to go with them:
Specifications : Size: 100 ml. glass bottle with dasher top, Non-GMO, Vegetarian, Locally Sourced
A very aromatic bitters. Made with Louisiana pecans and locally roasted chicory and coffee, all backed up with spices like cinnamon. A great twist on traditional style.
Primary Flavors: Chicory, Coffee, Pecans, Cinnamon, Spices.
Naturally works well with bourbon, rums, and surprisingly good with tequila. Try it in your next Old Fashioned! Very popular flavor addition for Tiki style drinks. Use in place of extract in your baked goods. Chicory-Pecan Chocolate Chip Cookies!!!
Aromatic, Flavorful, & Just A Little Spicy! Unique flavors typically found in a NOLA West Bank AKA "Da Best Bank" Style Boil. Inspired by a little seafood place in Gretna, our favorite spot to grab a few lbs of crawfish (and shrimp, crabs, pigs feet, turkey necks). Obviously, the recipe is a secret that we had fun reverse engineering by eating and eating and eating until we got it just right. What makes it unique is the addition of cloves, anise, and allspice all of which make for an amazingly flavored boil. We took the flavors you normally find in the boil and eliminated the salt and adjusted the spice down to make it more cocktail friendly.
Pairs well with both white and aged spirits. Great in a Martini for an interesting and delicious twist on an old favorite. Primary Flavors: Creole Tomato, Celery, Green Onion, Bell Pepper, Cayenne Pepper, Mirliton, Celery, Thyme, with herbs and spices. Created using all the typical flavors of a Pot of New Orleans Creole Gumbo! And a few you may not have tried before! Try it in soups and stews for an extra hit of flavor.
Try in margaritas, daiquiris, old fashion's, Pimm's cups, and even as a top dressing for a simple spiked lemonade with vodka.
Primary Flavors: Strawberry, Blackberry, Blueberry, Spices.
Made with local berries so we only are doing one run of it this year. When it's gone, it's gone until the following year. The flavor/aroma profile starts out as strawberry, almost jam-like, then moves into darker berries, and transitions to spice (cloves, cinnamon, allspice, etc.), and finishes with a dry bitter note. It is wonderful in all manner of spirits.
Created with Tequila based drinks in mind, and also pairs well with Vodka, Gin, Whiskey and Rum. Try it in your food recipes too! An excellent addition to salsas, BBQ sauces, marinades
Primary Flavors: Primary flavors include; Grapefruit, Lime, Culantro, Jalapeno, Cumin, backed up by additional herbs and spices.
You spoke and we listened! You wanted a spicier bitter so we made it a priority to reformulate and give you what you desired. The base recipe is the same, but the spice level has been turned up to 11! Great complex Tex-Mex fusion flavors. Filled with unique spices from Mexico, like cilantro and damiana. Wonderful flavors to make every day feel like Cinco de Mayo.
A very summery addition to cocktails. Works very well with Gin, Vodka, and Irish Whiskey.
Primary Flavors: Cucumber, Lavender, Lemon, Mint, Coriander, Dill, with additional herbs and spices.
A magnificent addition to your Pimm's Cup recipe!
Naturally works well with all liquors, but especially whiskey, rum, and tequila. Try it in your next Old Fashioned! Very popular flavor addition for Tiki style drinks. Use in place of extract in your baked goods. Spiced Cocoa Tea Chocolate Chip Cookies!!!
Primary Flavors: Chocolate, spices, oak, whiskey.
Inspired by the drink from St. Lucia and the shared creole culture with New Orleans. Made with naturally and traditionally grown, fermented, dried, and stone-ground cacao and spices from St. Lucia and local produce from Hollygrove Market and Farm in NOLA then aged in LA1 Whiskey barrels from Donner-Peltier Distillers in Thibodaux. The flavor/aroma is extreme chocolate followed by spice and oaky whiskey notes with a bitter finish and a slight tingling sensation from the local cayenne peppers. This captures the essence of Cocoa Tea and pays homage to that drink lineage from the xocolatl drinks of ancient Central America and the Mole sauces made there now. This is what you want a chocolate Bitters to be! Cheers!
We just completed bottling the new seasonal flavor of Love Potion No. 9. This one is sexy and sweet!
Primary Flavors: Rose, Lavender, Jasmine, Hibiscus, Chamomile, Heather, Citrus Blossoms.
Made with 9 different floral components, followed by our signature bitter finish. These pair well with light summer cocktails like spritzes, punches of all varieties and drinks on the sweeter side of the spectrum. They make interesting pairings with aged spirits but are more commonly used with vodka, gin, rum and sparkling drinks.
Our version of orange bitters, but more complex. Designed to be bright and full of fresh flavor. Amazing in Rum drinks. Add to a Daiquiri, El Presidente, or Mojito. Try it in sauces and with seafood or pork.
Primary Flavors: Sour Orange, Lime, Oregano, with additional herbs and spices. Use in place of traditional orange bitters, or experiment as you see fit. These pair well with sweet and savory drinks. They complement rum perfectly - we use these often in mojitos, daiquiris and tiki drinks. We love them with tequila and every so often use them to experiment with aged cocktail recipes.
This bitter is designed to amplify and enhance any tropical style drink. Dash on top of a Daiquiri, Mai Tai, or Margarita to start, then get bold and start giving everything a kiss!
Primary Flavors: Passion Fruit, Guava, Pineapple, Coconut, Spices.
Known as "honi" in Hawaii or "hong"i by the Māori, a Polynesian Kiss is a greeting in which 2 people press together their noses and foreheads at the same time. We pay homage to that act and to the people and places of the South Pacific with our new bitters. Featuring big kisses of passion fruit (Liliko'i), guava, pineapple, and coconut with smooches of exotic spices and flowers.
This bitter is perfect in coffee drinks, aged spirits like bourbon, rye, rum, and other whiskeys, mulled wine, even beer and ales. Try it in cooking - pumpkin soup, roasted nuts, braised meats, turkey brine, whipped cream, or add a little to any of your pies to enhance the natural flavors.
Primary Flavors: Pumpkin, Apple, Pecan, Sweet Potato, Pie Spices, Other Spices.
Made with pumpkin, pecan, apple, and sweet potato. With a bold hit of traditional holiday spices followed by our signature bitter finish. Also has an amazing complexity from the oak-aged Samogon* used in the recipe. Be creative! Happy Holidays!!!

NOLA Boards uses only environmentally responsible and renewable woods in making our products. Here is a listing of our most popular types of woods.
Prized for its distinctive rich and robust color, black walnut is commonly used in furniture building. It is grown throughout the eastern and central United States.
Cherry is one of the most highly valued furniture building woods due to its strength, beautiful color, easy workability and the incredibly smooth and glossy finish that it displays when properly sanded. It is grown in the eastern United States, mostly in northern and lake states.
Appearance: Light pink to reddish brown with straight, uniform, fine grain.
Aging Qualities: Darkens significantly with age.
Other Qualities: Highly shock resistant.
Maple is valued by furniture builders for its workability, consistency, hardness, and easy to paint surface. It is grown in all over the United States, but primarily throughout the eastern states.
Sapele is a beautiful hardwood that is often compared to (and even marketed as) mahogany due to its rich reddish brown color and denseness. It is grown in tropical regions of west Africa.
Appearance: Textured reddish brown grain with golden hues. Interlocked grain with a fine uniform texture and a nice natural luster.
Aging Qualities: Color will darken with age.
Other Qualities: Very dense and rot resistant.
Cypress trees are iconic in Louisiana, and are incredibly valuable to furniture and home builders due to their remarkable durability and rot resistance. The “sinker” in “sinker cypress” refers to how these logs were pulled from the bottom of a river.
In the late 1800’s through the early 1900’s, when the preferred method of transporting wood to locations downriver from where they were harvested was by lashing the logs together in a crude raft, it was not uncommon for these rafts to break apart and for some logs to sink to the bottom of the river. The cypress logs would lay there for up to a century!
The outer layers of the wood slowly decomposed, but the lack of sunlight and oxygen perfectly preserved the dense, oily heartwood. Sinker cypress is always found in the rivers and bayous of the southern and coastal United States.
Appearance: Varies due to the different minerals the wood is exposed to depending on where it has been submerged in water. Usually the wood displays a rich, glossy yellow and greenish hue.
Aging Qualities: Darkens to a rich, yellowish brown with age.
Other Qualities: Extremely durable and rot resistant. Oily, almost waxy feel to the wood.
The most widely used hardwood in the United States, white oak is grown primarily in the eastern United States.
Appearance: Creamy white to medium brown heart and sapwood. The heartwood often exhibits an olive colored cast. Has an exceptionally straight and uniform grain.
Aging Qualities: Does not darken much with age.
Other Qualities: Nearly impervious to liquids and highly rot resistant, white oak has been extensively used for ship timbers, barrels and casks.
Wooden cutting boards need to be kept clean and daily maintenance is usually a good scrub with hot soapy water after using. Do not soak your boards or any other wooden utensils in water or they'll crack and warp. Absolutely no dishwasher use! Some people use a very weak bleach solution or hydrogen peroxide to clean their boards after they've been used for cutting raw meat as a precaution against bacterial contamination. Depending on how often you use your boards, maintenance should be at least every couple months.
