Umami can be loosely translated as “pleasant savoury taste”, and is a portmanteau of “umai” (“delicious”) and “mi” (taste). Umami bitters are a unique blend of quintessentially Japanese flavours. Dried shiitake mushrooms, kelp and bonito flakes have a high concentration of umami. This power triad of Japanese ingredients allows for the ultimate synergy of umami. Delicately balanced with citrus, umami bitters enhance delicate flavours and provide a unique savoury dimension to cocktails and food.
