Riga Black Balsam, probably the oldest living bitter brand in the world. It is crafted with passion since 1752 in Riga, a vibrant metropolis of the Baltics, North of Europe. All-natural botanicals, unique crafting process and secret recipe build its authentic versatile taste. Once it was introduced by 18th century pharmacist Kunze as a ”magic elixir” for any disease and (a true story!) credited curing Russian empress Catherine the Great. Today it stands out among other bitters due its versatility - it is one of the rare bitters so loved by top bartending professionals for being an irreplaceable base spirit in cocktails.
Today Riga Black Balsam is the official partner brand of International Bartenders Association and one of the top herbal bitter brands in each market it establishes its footprint. It has also received more than 30 awards at international fairs.
