The winking bartender is certainly in a jolly mood as he pours out several glasses of the aperitif--textually claiming to be the oldest form of gentian concoction--as he brandishes an acrid adjective to let folks know precisely what they're getting into. Against the deep blue background, the bartender's jacket and the deep maroon of the drink contrast effectively. The oversized letters of the product stand out in relief as a makeshift bar. [Ref: PAI-XLI, 500] Bitter Secrestat was a French aperitif bitters produced in France but is no longer manufactured. Bitter Secrestat contained Gentian (group of flowering plants) bitters enhanced by a strong portion of citrus. After prohibition, Bitter Secrestat became the favored spirit for absinthe drinkers.
