In the early 1800's, Antoine Amedie Peychaud, an apothecary, gained fame in New Orleans not for the drugs he dispensed, but for the compounding of a liquid tonic called bitters.

These bitters, good for what ailed one, irrespective of malady, gave an added zest to the portions of cognac brandy he served in his pharmacy.

Cognac had long been a popular drink in the numerous coffee houses of New Orleans, and presently customers began demanding their brandy be spiked, with a dash of the marvellous Peychauds Bitters.

The zest Peychauds Bitters gives drinks and food has given it an honoured place in famous gourmet recipes the world over.

For any bar to be complete there must be a bottle of Peychaud's Bitters. Necessary in all of the most sophisticated cocktails, Peychaud's enhances the taste of whatever you're sipping.

Try them in Manhattans, Old Fashioneds, Whisky Sours or in thier signature Sazerac Cocktail.

Producer Information

The Sazerac Company is a large privately held and family-operated alcoholic beverages company with headquarters in Metairie, Louisiana. It is the largest distilling company in the United States. It owns and produces a large and diversified portfolio of beverage brands, and it owns and operates a number of distilling companies. Its distilleries include the Barton Distillery (in Bardstown, Kentucky), the Buffalo Trace Distillery (in Frankfort, Kentucky), and the A. Smith Bowman Distillery (a microdistillery in Fredericksburg, Virginia).' The products of the company and its subsidiaries include various types of whiskey, vodka, gin, tequila, rum, brandy, cognac, cocktails, cordials, liqueurs, 'shooters', and wine. The company is reportedly controlled by the chairman of its Board of Directors, William Goldring.
In June 2009, the company stated that the main focus of its business is bourbon (a product that is primarily distilled, aged, and bottled in Kentucky), and its activities in New Orleans are mostly administrative.
The company primarily traces its founding to the purchase of a bar known as the Sazerac Coffee House in 1869 by Thomas H. Handy (and Bloomberg Businessweek similarly lists the founding date of the company as 1870). After this purchase, Handy's company began to acquire and market brands of liquor. According to the company, the Sazerac Coffee House itself was named after a cocktail called the Sazerac that was created in the mid-1800s by a Creole immigrant named Antoine Peychaud, who operated a pharmacy on the French Quarter's Royal Street in 1838. The company publishes a Sazerac recipe and produces a Peychaud's Bitters named after Peychaud, which is an essential ingredient in the Sazerac cocktail.
