Regan’s Orange Bitters No. 6

Regan’s Orange Bitters No. 6

New Orleans, LA

RegansOrange Bitters #6 is a brand of cocktail bitters invented in the early 1990’s by Gary Regan.



Unlike Peychaud’s and Angostura brands, orange bitters are hard to come by. So when Regan couldn’t find any to his liking, he decided to cook up a batch of his own. It took six attempts and a trip to a witches’-supply store in Greenwich Village—presumably Kalustyan’s was a bust—before he got the recipe down. The tasty brew of orange zest, cardamom, cinchona, caraway, coriander, gentian, quassia, and a few other occult staples is fast becoming a hot commodity on the mix-ologist circuit, both here and abroad.
