A bitter is traditionally an alcoholic preparation flavoured with botanical matter such that the end result is characterised by a bitter, sour, or bittersweet flavour. Numerous longstanding brands of bitters were originally developed as patent medicines but are now sold as digestives and cocktail flavourings. The best bitters are obtained by using the plant which has the most elegant definition of bitterness i.e. the Gentian. Cinchona ( Quinine ) is also preferred, against Dandelion, Artichoke, etc.
