Angostura bitters were first made in a town called Angostura now named Ciudad Bolivar in Venezuela. When our dad was 5 years old his family moved to Trinidad and Tobago where his dad, our grandfather was hired to do surveying work for a new construction project. Our dad remembers going to the country club with his brothers and sisters where they would enjoy a delicious lemonade with a few drops of Angostura bitters. These aromatic bitters typically used in flavoring beverages have been produced in Trinidad and Tobago for more than 100 years.
