Locally-produced Angostura bitters has topped the world as the number one selling bitters and number one trending bitters.

Angostura issued a statement on Thursday saying that Drinks International has released its Annual Bar Report 2018 and Angostura has swept both of the categories.

“We are pleased with the results of the poll,” said Angostura Chief Executive Officer Genevieve Jodhan, “today’s bitters market is more competitive than ever and these awards show that Angostura bitters is truly in a class of its own.”
