Good afternoon, everyone! Quick question when it comes to clarifying potable bitters (amaros). We have a bitters that we're getting ready to release here in the next few weeks. We have the formula approved, labels and bottles in hand, and some excellent early reviews that we can use to promote it. However, we're still struggling to get the bitters a pleasant clear look. How we produce it: House-produced wheat NGS. Distilled to 192 Proof. Proof down to 80. Fill stainless steel mesh bag with the botanicals and place in the NGS. Macerate 24 hours. Filter large chunks out via paper filter. Proof down to 70 Proof. The end result has the flavor we want, but ends up being cloudy with some sediment that settles. We tried running it through some one micron filters and while that cleared the bitters up, it did reduce the intensity of flavor, which is what I was afraid of. Any suggestions on ways to clarify a potable bitters without sacrificing flavor? Thanks in advance! Mark A. Vierthaler Boot Hill Distillery Dodge City, KS
