Originally founded by Johann Gottlieb Böker in 1828, Boker's Bitters gained popularity around the World as the finest bitters of the Golden Age of mixed drinks. Boker's were famously the preferred brand of Professor Jerry Thomas, featuring throughout his book, 'How to Mix Drinks or The Bon Vivant's Companion', now recognised as the World's first bartender's guide.
The Volstead Act, commonly referred to as Prohibition, closed the Boker's company in the 1920s. Tasting and analysing original samples, referencing historical medical guides, as well as unearthing court records and a series of counterfeit recipes dating as far back as 1853, Dr Adam's used these findings to reformulate a historically accurate representation of Boker's Bitters and brought them back to market at the end of 2009.
