Allspice (noun) a term coined by English explorers in the 17th century as they thought the dried unripe fruit of the Pimenta Dioica combined the flavour of nutmeg, cinnamon and cloves.
The sweet, spicy and warming notes of Top Shelf Deftly-Ground Allspice Bitters add depth to classic cocktails like the Ol’ Fashioned with its desirable blend of allspice corns, orange peel, dried ginger and cinchona bark.
