The Bitter of Les Diablerets

Description

The aperitif made from alpine herbs, issued from French-speaking Switzerland.

A local product and the only national aperitif of French-speaking origin, Bitter des Diablerets was created in Aigle in 1876 by François Leyvraz. A mysterious Dutch traveller is said to be behind this recipe... Or was it the Devil? Freshness of natural Alpine plants, sweet touches and bitter flavours, enjoy the digestive and curative virtues of Bitter des Diablerets. The brand's popularity peaked in the 1950s and it became part of the recipe for the famous "Bouchon vaudois". A famous drink in the ski resorts, Bitter des Diablerets has been given a new lease of life in recent years with the return of bitters. The Bitter des Diablerets is served dry, "on the rocks" or with mineral water. It can be combined with a variety of sodas. Original taste blends are the result. In 1980, with the advent of freestyle snow sports, the snowboarding world got hold of the Bitter des Diablerets and composed a cocktail called "Surf", which is now on the menu of many establishments.
